Hello, my readers! This time I will share about my full of fun experience on last Saturday.
Yes, on Saturday I joined Elle Indonesia Runway to Street Styling Competition.
This event is greatly inspired by the creativity of fashion bloggers in creating stylish street style looks from the runway.
There are 4 bloggers (Bethany Putri, Anggin Lembayung, Rajasa Pramesywara and Adelle Veronica)
and 4 celebrities (Kenes Andari, Dion Wiyoko, Jessie Setiono and Adella Fauzi) in the competition.
The Elle team separate us into 4 teams consisting of two people, 1 blogger and 1 celebrity.
They gave us 15 minutes to borrow clothes from couple of their partner stores (Karen Millen and Coast) in Plaza Senayan to create a high-street version of one runway look from them.
At first, I thought I have to mix and match the clothes for my teammate.
So, when they told me that Dion Wiyoko is my partner, I almost had a panic attack.
Hhmm, for me it is not that easy to mix and match men clothes.
But, after they told me that we will do the styling to a mannequin,
I am so happy!!
Dion Wiyoko is an actor and presenter, here in Indonesia.
At first, when I got the email from Elle magazine, I have no idea who's Dion Wiyoko.
So, I google it, and I recognize his face!!! -__-' Haha!
I watched one of his movies, Serigala Terakhir, which is one of my favorite Indonesia movies.
I am a junior blogger and this was my first styling competition ever,
Dion is a guy and don't really understand about runway fashion for woman.
So, we're agreed that we're the underdog team here.
This is going to be a really long story about the competition from the beginning --- end.
So, be ready and don't get bored.
Let the story begin...
The host is Iwet Ramadhan,
he's a broadcaster, an mc and an entepreneur.
The performer is Bayu Risa,
I can say that he has a really nice voice.
Before we start the competition, the host asked us to go up on stage to have a small interview and gave us a picture of a runway style. We have to re-create the look into something more creative and stylish look. Well, the rule is 'the most creative and also stylish look will win the competition'.
So, I have to nailed it!!!
|This is our serious and clueless face.|
We allowed to borrow 6 items from each store.
We're trying to make sure that we chose the right clothes, shoes and bags to recreate the look.
You know what?? We borrow 6 clothes in less than 5 minutes from Karen Millen.
Nice job, underdog team!! What were you thinking??
From Karen Millen we move upstairs to Coast.
I totally have no idea about the clothes in this store.
Never heard about it before.
But, they sell really nice clothes and clutches.
|Serious moments at Coast..|
About my personal outfit...
I am wearing unbranded gold tee and black blazer,
H&M necklace and pink suede shorts,
and flat shoes from Zara.
|aaaaaand we're done here!!|
The dress was too small for the mannequin.
We were the last team on stage because at the beginning we have problem with the dress.
I decided to changed the dress with floral pencil skirt and sheer shirt plus champagne color cropped blazer and yellow shoes and clutch bag.
I really like the yellow shoes, I want it.
It was my size!!
Even tough my teammate is a guy, surprisingly we worked and rocked the competition as a solid team!
Haha! The good thing about Dion as my teammate is that I can nailed the look based my idea and he kinda support me for that. Hihi!
The prizes are cool...
The 1st winner - Sony Tablet
The 2nd winner - Microwave
The 3rd winner - Braun Buffel bag
The 4th winner - iPod Shuffle
My target is the Sony Tablet. Well, I am sure the other bloggers also targeting the tablet.
The competition is not about the prices for me, it is about showing people that I am as a junior blogger,
I have a good quality and sense of style. Ahaha!! *annoying statement*
The point is, I had a really great day that night.
