Continued from my last post i ❤ FASHION: My BWA Annual Fashion Show outfit. It took a while for me to post this after because as you will see I took LOTS of pictures. It was hard for me to select my favorites among 600+ photos! I wish I took more photos of the other guests outfits though – there were so many gorgeous shimmering long gowns, dashing James Bond-like men in tuxes, impressive kilts and uniforms!I was however too busy capturing fun moments with friends and friends participating in the fashion show – who totally rocked it! I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them and putting them together!
When we arrived the Shangri-la Hotel ballroom doors were still closed so we had quite a few glasses of bubbly at the foyer. I wasn’t able to take pictures of it because it was too crowded to take out my massive DSLR. Besides between the glass of bubbly, the clutch and trying not to get my train stepped on I had my hands full! =P This picture was taken by Paul on FF’s camera…
Then finally the doors were open!
Before the show began there was a security briefing by the security agency hired. After all there were many people from the diplomatic corps., VIPs, dignitaries and expats in the Shangri-la Ballroom that night. There were more than 600 guests plus the participants of the fashion show itself. We were told that should there be security threats we should all stay inside the venue until the security agency has sorted it out.
There was a vegetarian and non-vegetarian option for the dinner. The chicken was overcooked and dry our appetizer, but aside from that I had no complaints. The best thing on the menu that night was definitely that exquisite chocolate dome dessert!
After dinner, Paul hurriedly went back to the room to get his tripod and set it up. Awwww…Isn’t he the best boyfriend ever? The fashion show were all British brands of course. It used to be your usual fashion show, but over the years it transformed and now the models don’t just do ramp but dance as well. It’s quite entertaining to watch friends work it on stage. =)
There’s Paul, capturing every group’s performance!
I couldn’t believe it! My friend Kaho of Chuzai Living was also part of the show! How cool is that?!?
This energetic lady in a pink and black tutu was one of the stand-outs for me. She was just an electrifying ball of fire when she was on stage! She was so much fun to watch! Not surprisingly she was also the choreographer of her group.
TIME TO PARTY!!!
After the show every body was ready to dance and the drinks continued to flow. So many people wanted to dance on the stage that the organizers had to stop the music and ask everybody to come off the stage. They were being very careful with everyone’s welfare because I’m sure the stage wasn’t made to carry that many people on it.
