Mercedes-Benz STYLO Fashion Grand-Prix is one local fashion event that I always look forward to. It has always been fun and I always make an effort to dress up and turn up every single year since 2011.
I was expecting the same amount of fashion, fun and wackiness this year but I was slightly disappointed by the use of smaller venue and a few other things that didn’t really live up to STYLO’s very own standard.
Poppy-Garden is quite an interesting choice of venue but it is a little bit too small for large scale fashion event like STYLO. It was quite difficult when the attendees have to be divided into two separate levels. I was running up and down the stairs to meet my friends and make sure I said HI to everyone.
Well the themes are fun, tho! From bikers and superheroes to Suzy Wong and slumber party, it was so great to see people putting on a lot effort to dress according to the theme of the night. I remember seeing all the Datins and Datuks wearing headbands and carrying their little teddy bears at the opening night which was both cute and slightly creepy at the same time. Well I showed up as myself because that’s what I always do. My options are limited these days.
Gawd I need to lose weight!
I have written about STYLO both on EMMAGEM and EMM-A-MAN so I don’t think I have to go on and on about it again. I just hope that next year will be a better year for STYLO. Like when they decided to have it at the temple a couple of years back? That was really awesome!
