It is none other than the GOLDEN AGE OF WOMEN! You would think that sexism doesn't exist towards women anymore, with equality in the workplace, school, and such, but think again...it still does... I would have to reiterate...how often do you see women as CEO's of big companies?Even my mom who's the principal of her own company gets disrespect from men who works with her..tsk tsk!!!
To continue the movement of equality or more like the time for women to shine and be empowered...a young girl by the name of Shafiqah(she's only 19! and so Business savvy already) recently started an online magazine called Women of malaysia to create awareness to women out there that we can progress and be more enlightened, not looked at as the weaker race.....*Kudos*
I got to know her after she told me more about her visions and goals which I am in full support of. Finally met her at the shoot where she was nothing short of impressive!
The photography studio that shoots for the magazine
After the shoot, snapping a picture with the ever talented Jaja Radzwan who also works in Paris! What a privilege to be made up by someone who is a make up artiste for shows in Milan!
With Shafiqah(in the middle) , Nick Dorian the photographer and her friend. Great team to work with...more efficient than a print ad team!
One of the shots that were taken...I was given a full feature interview which you can directly access here: http://www.womenofmalaysia.net/2011/06/ameizs-by-her.html
The magazine officially launched on May 8th 2011 with a whole host of supporters and sponsors...told you Shafiqah is marvelous...
Attended the event with oscar in our pink themed attire?...see Oscar's orange and pink jacket..hehehehe
The handmade runway which I found adorable
Singing performance to kickstart events for the night...that girl in white had a voice like Rihanna!
Miss Editor of Women of Malaysia giving the opening speech, pretty in pink!
And then, the fashion show begin which had numerous outfits from stores owned by females that just started out and are trying to make a name for themselves in the fahsion industry
Even had Kebayas
Malay wedding gowns
To me, the editor herself who is a 19 year old girl that studies in Lim Kok Wing and now launched an online magazine who had no help, "Just asking sponsors, celebrities, and models politely with good english" that's what she said to get her sponsors for the magazine and event! This girl is a testimony to the the magazine itself which in which she envisions to be a hard copy someday. Her wish to make women stronger and believe in their rights is definitely coming true through her support to local women, their businesses, and believing in their endeavors! You go girl! And of course women out there!:)
