Remember my previous posts on Istyle KLIA happening the past month???? The theme was "transforming trash into fashion?"
Well....guess what? After a heated competition between the 6 teams, the grand finale was held on the 18th of December at KLIA airport itself. Besides the horrendous traffic jam to KLIA on a Monday night after work( you know how bad that can be), we arrived just in the nick of time to even eat some desserts!!!!
Ashley and I all decked out with our goodie bags
My new boyfriend, Ivan and his beautiful mom
The event kickstarted with a few speeches, and....
Prem and Nadia's(FlyFM Pagi Rock Crew) own version of transforming trash into fashion... There was a...er aluminium fairy? a robot head, and a Puma outfit?!?! You guys should definitely stick to being announcer's on FlyFM!! LOL!!
The Awesome opening dance which seem like STOMP to me... Using recycled material as instruments...
The fashion show finally begins with children parading accessories made for the competition which you can read HERE. I have chosen my favourite designs for you guys to take a look at...If not, you will be bombarded with endless pictures of models(I know..who doesn't want that?)
After that, it was the adults turn.... the designs I've picked as my favorites was actually based on whether it could be worn on a daily basis and how it looked on a person...was it functional?!?
The next bit was getting more exciting because there was a guest artiste, and it was closer to the announcement of the winners!!!
This band who was inspired by preserving nature was the opening act FOR?????
Zainal Abidin, if you don't know who he is...I am sure you know the song....Hijau????? Loved it when I was younger!!
There was a special contest for the 6 teams...which was to design bags which were enviromentally friendly and could be used as hand- carry's in KLIA!!! These were my top 3...here's why?
Looks good as a luggage bag and very user friendly
Compact but can be extended to an even bigger size..don't girls just love those bags???
This silver bag is the perfect size to fit duty free items in it!!! Plus, it looks unisex
The finale designs for the fashion show was to showcase designs made earlier on by the contestants which was actually the best ones...
This outfit for the guy is stunning and very fashionable..I am not sure whether it just looks good on this model??
This dress is an amazing piece of artwork because it's not too flashy but has the subtle designs of nature in the front *me like*
After viewing some of the lovely designs(some were too Over the Top because you will never wear it out normally),I guessed that it was a very tough decisions for the judges. And the winners are...........
ME!!!!! No way, I can't design for nuts...But I unexpectedly won a Samsung Galaxy Tab for being Istyle KLIA's Best Blogger!! YAY!!
Now, for the real winners....
3 in Style as the 2nd runner up
Elite 25 as the 1st runner up(I kinda guessed they would be in the top 3)
The winner is none other than Xylem!!!!
No one left empty handed because all 6 teams got certificates for participating!!!
If you want to take a look at what Malaysia has got in terms of fashion designers... you can take a closer look at this video:
I was nothing short of impressed at the effort put in by all 6 teams and also the designs produced! Malaysian designers and publicists can definitely go far.. Congratulations to all participating teams!! Watch out for the next Jimmy Choo who will be from Malaysia!!!
