Couture on Ice | Runway #1

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.”

Fatima Asanovski
Dalian Teppo

Couture On Ice

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.

enjoy !
