“Everybody line up… The show is about to start” – probably one of my favorite lyrics to play in my head during days when I need that extra boost of confidence. Who doesn’t like to pretend that the world is your runway? I’ve always loved watching fashion shows, I’ve been lucky to watch a couple in person, but my favorite fashion show that I look forward to every year is definitely the annual Fashion Steps Out event whereby brands take center-stage on the streets of Orchard Road and share with the public a taste of life in the fab lane.
I was lucky to be invited again by the lovely and amazing team at Clozette (love this community so much!) to attend the runway show for the 2nd time this year – and boy did it not disappoint!
As always, it was a dilemma trying to choose an outfit for the event – its one of those, “I want to be fashionable, yet comfortable” type of situations. Thankfully I scored an awesome deal with this retro-inspired jumpsuit from Marks & Spencer, put on some comfortable heeled sandals, and the combination worked!
The evening began with big fan-fare at the atrium of Paragon, where all the stars, fashionistas, and style lovers mingled and caught up amidst bursts of screams coming from fans every time a celebrity makes an appearance. The ambience was glamorous, sassy and lots of photo taking and posing for the cameras. It was really fun catching up with my girls from Clozette, as well as other bloggers too!

As I’m barely surviving a busy first quarter of the year, I was just really happy to dress up, put on lots of makeup and get out on the town to just socialise and enjoy the evening with no other cares nor worries in the world. I was psyched to be able to put my new Tartelette In Bloom palette to its fullest test: wearing one of the frosty colors, Firecracker, wet (spritzed my brush with some MAC Fix+ Spray) on my lids – and it looked Ah-Mah-Zing!

Must-have #OOTD shot on Orchard Road. When else will you be able to get such a chance?
The show kickstarted with much pizzazz, with dancers and their Samsung gadgets shaking to the music, and with models adorning the latest technological trends by the sponsor.
The first brand to “hit the road” is one of my favorites – Uniqlo. They showcased their latest line and I already knew I loved all of them. If you haven’t tried this amazing Japanese brand yet – make sure you do, they carry affordable but very high quality trendy clothing that’s perfect for our weather in Singapore. Plus, they have great winter-fashion choices if you’re shopping for a holiday abroad!
Fox Kids was next, these adorable kids were making everyone go “ooooh” and “awwww”.
This cutie pie in particular caught my eye!🙂
I loved how they incorporated lots of different vibes this year – they had a good combination of runway walks, dances and entertainment to keep you entertained. The music was pumping and I was bopping away in my seat – the atmosphere was just fabulous. Most of all, I love how this event includes whoever who wishes to catch a piece of the action along Orchard Road. Fashion is for everyone to enjoy!
Old and new girlfriends I get to spend the wonderful evening with.
The lovely ladies of Clozette – thank you for continuously providing us with opportunities to enjoy these fab events!
It was an amazing addition to my long weekend, I am glad I was able to catch a piece of the action of this year’s Fashion Steps Out, and with wonderful company too! The events, showcases and exciting exhibitions still continue in Orchard Road and its malls till 8 May 2016 – be sure to check them out yourselves!
