Mercedez- Benz STYLO Fashion Grand Prix 2012

I was at STYLO. It was a hell of a lot of fun. It was madness on a whole different level. Well at lest for me it was. I danced with Jimmy Choo, passed out inside my friend's car on our way home at least half of the time, walked the runway like a pro, party-rocked at a temple as well as 421 meter above ground at KL Tower and seriously I don't want to get into all the deets. These are some of the photos from Mercedez- Benz STYLO Fashion Grand Prix 2012 that I managed to capture with my beat-up camera.I hope you'll like them. They're not that bad really. I promise.


The opening night at KL Tower showcasing retro-themed designs from members of BDA (Bumiputera Designers Association) like Rizalman, Fairuz Ramdan, Fizi Woo and Wanpa.



This is one out of 11 edible designs for "Food for Art, Art for Food" from students of local universities and colleges. We were not too impressed. Come on! Bread Spartan?! Does it have to be that literal?

My good friend Wilson in one of the beautiful creations from designer Key Ng. They were made out of Key Ng's ready-to-wear pieces buttoned and sewn together to create deconstructed, Vivienne Westwood-esque looks just perfect for the carnival/freak-show theme of the night. My editor and I couldn't stop buzzing about it! Congrats Key Ng!

My friend Syahirah is one of the contestants for STYLO Model Search and seen here wearing a look made entirely from recycled materials like rubber bands and plastic bags. This dress won second place that night.


Design college students who participated in Emerging Designer of The Year competition. Mohamad Hanif won the title and a paid trip to Mexico! Further prove of how talented and fabulous people named "Hanif" are. Not too bad huh?

Definitely one of the most fun fashion weeks I've ever been to. Can't wait for what Dato' Nancy Yeoh has in store for us next year.
