Field Trip: MIFW Men's World

Interestingly, Adrien, who was rather keen on attending the MIFW and was asking about for tickets, didn't come with us for this rather important field trip. Not like we had tickets too, but a call to the feller-in-charge and we were told that there's a good chance of being able to see the Men's World fashion show after all. So with that much hope we decided to go.

Turns out only Alex, Jin and us ended up going for the Men's World event, and it's mindblowing. This ought to be a regular field trip! Every designer had his own theme for the season's fashion, although we admittedly only like a few of 'em. Like Daniel Cho's 'aikido pants' as we think of them, those are interesting. There were some very snazzy jackets (we think they be Key NG), but the funky logo on the back of 'em jackets spoiled it for us, we can't wear those for most formal occasions then...ah well we aren't that extreme a fashionista to pull it off.

One hour went by rather fast. And we took very few photos. If you want pictures, head over to Alex's megapost. Interestingly the models, when looking at them on our screen, appear to shine a la Yvaine of Stardust...thus we labelled them as 'Runway Angels'. It's a good thing Alex had his DLSR then, which of course leads to our next point - we should have been led in as 'MEDIA' rather than as 'VISITORS'. Right? Right? After all, we'll be blogging about it what. :P Well maybe not as descriptive as actual media press but hey, just trying our luck here.

Waiting for the next field trip now.

Yay! yay! I am now the FIRST one to post a comment in Monsieur Soldat's blog. And the Ru will have to post a comment after me... hahaha... hehehe... huhuhu...

Now, you all would have been led in as 'MEDIA' only if you all have the appropriate pass, right? Unfortunately, all you people got was VISITOR tickets only. Pity...

janvier, you and alex should have been modelling on the runway, or at least helping as 'backstage crew'. Hee. And yes, #2 on alex's post is very cute.

(PS. david™, I talked with janvier already before he published post. But I was unaware there was a competition here.)

That Daniel Cho has had aikido fixation for some time now. Look at his website at Kwan. Too bad I couldn't come. :(. I wonder if my fave model Jeffrey Cheng was there...

Fable Frog said...

thanks for the report! I missed the show even though i do have ticket~ should have gave it to others who wanna go [and can go]~

Janvier said...

David The Man: Well we didn't push for 'MEDIA' yet. Maybe next field trip.

QR: Hurry up and graduate already! :P

Hrugaar: But we'd have missed out on them showcasing the fashion designs to full effect! We so not runway material.

William: Your fave model we wouldn't know leh. Gotta check with Jin or Alex. Shall be eyeing them 'aikido' pants sooner or later!

Fable Frog: Never mind, next time you get someone to cover your shift for that one hour k?
