Body Shop's "Brush with Fashion" show

So yesterday, I was invited by Lina to The Body Shop's Lounge of Brush with Fashion Finals happening at Pavilion, KL. Basically the event was about a collaboration between Body Shop Malaysia and PJ College of Art & Design (PJCAD) who jointly organized a "Brush with Fashion" competition for PJCAD fashion design students to reveal their talents and creativity of designing. Plus, there was also a competition among Body Shop make-up artist to create a fresh look with arts that needs to be paired with the fashion design's outfit. Details of the competition's {here}.

The goodie bags!! We each received a voucher from Body Shop (that was only valid yesterday), a guest card for an evening tea at Dome, an Inti college notebook, and a lip-gloss from Body Shop.

Before the show started, we were offered to do a FREE make-over. Luckily, we arrived there earlier to get the make-up done and of course, a front row seats..heh!

And after the make-over, we went for a photo-shoot to be portrait inside those Body Shop's "Nature's Way To Beautiful" booklets.

Okay, we saw someone just a few rows seating beside us and she was the host of the day. Who else but the drop-dead gorgeous super model Daphne Iking!!! Love everything on her, the style, the face, the legs, the voice, the language, man, did she just perfect! And she did say during the show, "Tgk tu die senyum comel je Ya Allah Ya Tuhanku" and yup, i didn't know she's a Muslim until yesterday lol (my sister told me) and she also speaks Penang yo! "Depa bla bla bla"!

And the fashion show started!

As you could see there's a table and a chair on the runway. We were anxious at the moment, turns out it was for the make-up category competitions among the Body Shop's make-up artist. They had like 20 minutes to complete with the make-up arts. And as on picture below, i spotted a very cute and petite looking Hijabi girl. I voted for her of course, and alhamdulillah, she won a third place (Silver award).

This is a dance performance by Teenage Dreamers group while we were waiting for the models to get dressed and continue to walk on the runway with the new make-up and outfit designed by the students.

So these are the designs that was created by the college students. They had to design an outfit using only recycled items as the theme was actually going green. Beautifully made and extravagantly looking dresses, very detailed finishing touches, plus what a great and eccentric arts they embellished on each designs. Such talents i have to say!!

On the beginning of the show, we were given a voting cards as being placed inside the goodie bags, so we had to vote for the most outrageous looks and the winning title for the best fashion design/make-up categories. We only had to choose 3 winners for each category which is for Silver, Gold & Platinum award. The audience's votes were only eligible for 30% results overall. And, proudly speaking, me & Lina had voted for most of the winners. Yay! Congratulations to all the young college designers!! May you guys pursue more on your studies and achieve more on your future careers.

DOME had closed temporarily as they had to reserve for a private function. And yes, it was for the fashion show guests. So practically,  i was babbling to Lina that i was so hungry and we were just glad that we had free meals after wards. Lunch + evening tea altogether, both of us were so fulled of the unlimited choices of food.

And lastly, as usual, gonna share with you what i was wearing for the fashion show ^_^

Later after we had our evening tea, we went straight over to Body Shop's store and browse around as the voucher given was only valid on yesterday.
