Happy Hump Day Beautiful people ! I hope everyone had a great weekend and a great start to the week. I must say, I’m so relieved there are only 2 more days left until the next weekend. There is just so much happening … Continue reading
So I finally received footage from my lovely PA’s ( ha-ha wait ‘till they see this) and FINALLY got around to putting it up for everyone to enjoy !
I’m sure you can all tell which one is mine judging from my blog photographs.
Padded Sheaths and Arctic Pelts
“Soft and cushiony adipose tissue is recreated using knitted material. Filler and padding add sculptural interest. Large-scale cables and ribbing stuffed with soft wading increase voluminous silhouettes in arctic grey or lavenders and the palest of nudes and yellows.”
The designers ( in order of appearance) :
Yours Truly, Rhaya Ratavosi
Ingrid Vitriana Husodo
Thi Thuy Duong Ngyuen
xxxx Much love, Yours Truly
Hello Hello – And I’m back into it again.
As you’ve probably all noticed I haven’t blogged in awhile. This is because I decided to take a few weeks off after the show to do what normal people do … Work, Shop, more work, more shopping…see absolutely normal… ( what ?… It’s Christmas ha-ha and besides I did good )
Amongst that there has been farewells, girls night out, and a new one to the life of rhy … a time for a love to blossom. And this time I’m not referring to shoes, a new outfit or a timeless tiffany charm, I am in fact referring to the actual thing itself … a boy !
My last post was just before the fashion show – all the crazy hustle bustle deadlines before show time !! The fittings went well and as for the show itself – It could not have run any smoother.
It’s the greatest relief – the greatest reward after all that to have your collection on the catwalk for people to view. Because I guess only you know what it took to get yourself there.
Here’s a few shots from the day/night taken from our very own Raffles Facebook page as well as some of my own.

So it’s that busy time of year again – it’s all rush-rush, running around buying shoes and accessories for the looks, doing alterations, castings and fittings for the fashion show !
All the hard work has paid off and now it’s SHOWTIMEE !!!

To be honest – I do appreciate the garments he creates as I respect every designer and their work but I never really really really LOVED his eveningwear as much as I am REALLY Loving his new Collection.
It’s sophisticated, structured and most importantly he has grasped the very essence of “corporate” ! I Love it, I’m actually amazed at how well he has done this !
The body hugging silhouettes and classic Tailored styles with his touch of Perry absolutely makes me wish I had an “Office” job.
I Definitely cannot wait until it hits stores !!
Well done on the new direction Perry – That’s an Aplus from me !
