Undercover for Singapore 2013 #DigitalFashionWeek #DFW

Recently I was invited by The Body Shop to cover this year's Digital Fashion Week .
Happy to say I had so much fun hanging out at the backstage, learning and picking up new things.

Most of you know that I've just started serious MUA-ing for clients only at the 2nd half of this year and within a short span of time (after graduating from Cosmoprof in August) I was given the opportunity to work on models, celebrities, brides and everyday people like you and me.

It is my greatest honour being part of this year's DFW, I have to thank 1 person in particular "Ching Yan", who gave me a chance to shine and learn from the expert Lan Nyguen, a well acclaimed London Based makeup artist.

Incase you have no idea what's the relationship between TBS and DFW, they are the official makeup brand for this year's show :)

Here are the TBS in-house makeup artists, among them there's me the odd one. Technically I'm behind the camera...heh...But, I'll will merge into the scene once the models are ready for makeup.
The MUAs are busy setting and prepping their stations thus the somewhat chaotic formation shown here, it will get worse when the crowd (models, presenters, celebrities) comes in later.

Sad to say I had to head off somewhere and come back during the evening, I'll talk more offstage scenes in my next blogpost. 

First show, proudly presented by Zenchi Spring Summer 04 Collection.
I love his amazing juxtapose of drape vs edgy, fine cutting of fabric that gives women that strong powerful approach, what a direct complimentary to the soft flowly fabric.

The finale ends with Naomi Campbell gracing the runway for this opening show.
Everyone took out their digital gadgets, leaned forward and started snapping, I almost missed my chance in getting a nice picture of her. whoo! Glad my camera is good, managed to take 2 decent ones minus the 8 blurred images which I've discarded.

Afterwards I headed towards the backstage to do my thing. In view you see the back of a head facing the camera, that's the makeup maestro Larry Yeo working on one of the models.
