Shooting with cellophane and tulle

Collaborated with Irvin and Shiqin from Meese Studios recently to do a shoot for two looks. The first was an outfit made of reflective silver cellophane. The way the lights were set up were perfect and the material looked absolutely electric!

The second look involved lots of tulle in bright contrasting colours with a japonesque make-up look (had mentioned wanting to do this in an earlier post and it has finally happened!). 

The studio at The Pond was one of the coolest I’ve worked in so far. If you couldn’t figure out the above image, there was a trap door from the second floor that allows you to shoot from up top!

Not only was the studio really cool, the make up and dressing area in the back was simply divine.

This has been one of the most fun shoots to date and I can’t wait to play with more material again! :)

World Runway premiere

Finally a different concept in fashion – enter the World Runway in which teams consisting of a stylist, make up artist and hair stylist represent their countries in a styling tournament!

In this first series, the teams hailing from 8 countries (France, Italy, Japan, United States, United Kingdom, Russia, Singapore and Brazil) had to shop in Singapore for the items and had a budget of $500 per look for 10 looks. The prize? S$100,000, where half would be kept by the winning team and the other half donated to Red Cross Japan. :)

The sound and light system was amazing (yes, the geek in me noticed) but it seems like they could have done with a couple more rehearsals unfortunately in terms of transitions and confetti being popped at the wrong time.

That aside, some of the styling was simply divine! The top pick of last night had to go to this black ensemble by the UK team and they certainly deserved the win (apologies for the poor quality as my DSLR wasn’t allowed in):

Besides UK, the Japan and Italy were on the top of my list. Pity there could only be one winner!
