Pu3 Bridal Part 2 : Hauntingly Beautiful10:53:00 PM
Hello ladies :)
Another super long post filled with lots of pictures and videos!
Yesterday Cho whatsapped a video summary of the first ever Pu3 Bridal Fashion Showcase titled "An Allegory" themed Hauntingly Beautiful which was held on 6th July 2013. (Watch videos below)
I suddenly realized that it has been quite some time since I blogged about what I wore (Pu3 Bridal Part 1) waaay back in July. I did mention that I would blog about the show, the talented designer Putri Azalea Ramli (my cousin Cho) and the lovely fashion lovers I met that night. It has been 5 months since, but as ever with me there's just too many photos to choose from! Now that there's an official video which captures the mood and everything else I don't have to choose so many pictures and videos which were taken from my camera. Yay! But after re-discovering my drive to write this post, I've decided, heck, I'll just share most of them anyways. So here goes, another delayed yet very long post!
Beautiful models, beautiful set up!

Love the above video summary by Meel Lao! Captured the moments perfectly!
Scroll down to the bottom to see more pictures and videos of the event taken by the amateur moi. Yes, me. I know the pictures are not as clear as my recent photos because the photos were taken from my previous camera but I think the effect suits the Hauntingly Beautiful theme even more :) The event was unique, elegant and quite haunting.
When I arrived, Cho told me she gave me the best seat in the house. I thought she was joking but it turns out that I sat next to the official photographers and videographer. Thank you Cho! It was a very organized and artistically curated event, everyone was assigned their seats (I was one of the front liners on duty to usher guests to their seats too) and the set-up was very unique which allowed the models to walk in front of all the guests around the whole room.

We were classmates since Standard 1 when we were 7 years old.
Blessed to have friends who stick around through thick and thin, good times and bad times.
This is not even half of the entire bridal collection! Everything was so beautifully haunting and screams Putri Azalea Ramli! Love my view of the whole awesome show.
This show marks yet another milestone for Pu3. As Cho's cousin, I've watched her talent shine through from Pu3's beginning to now. It also means a lot to me that she has ventured into this territory because she really does have the talent. When I wanted to get married, the first person I went to to discuss my wedding dresses was with Cho. Her ideas and sketches were very good. Not only could she understand what I wanted, she made it better. I believed in her talent then, even though she was a little nervous to do mine as I was the first person to ask Pu3 to do all my four of my bridal dresses 3 and a half years ago with Cho doing two, and Enda Cho (my aunt Raja Noora Ashikin) doing the other two. Some photos of 2 of my bridal dresses are available on this blog (see Wedding portrait and wedding photos). I recently wore my akad nikah top again in GAYA Pu3 for Mira's Wedding too.

Yeop Rizal brought us cousins, my parents and aunties for a very late dinner at Carlos Pavilion after the show and the food was delicious! I remember it's been a long while since I ate that much at that time. Thank you for treating us Yeop!
All in all it was a good night. I enjoyed the fashion show where Cho expressed her artistic creativity through her beautiful fashion pieces. I enjoyed the music and the beautiful set up. I enjoyed meeting family, relatives and friends at the intimate, private and cosy fashion showcase. And at the end of it, I enjoyed the food. Alhamdulillah.Congrats Pu3 and Cho! Continue to shine!
PEACE & LOVE!
