aere Fashion Show 2015 : Part 19:33:00 AM
Last two weeks has been a crazy super busy week. Good kind of busy with sleepless nights. :) I could barely sleep more than 2 hours every night because I was so nervous and excited all at the same time. It was aere's first solo fashion show last week. I'm blessed to have creative, talented and hardworking ladies around me who helped out when I was preparing for aere EID Fashion Show 2015 on 19th May at Royale Chulan KL presenting aere x dUCK collection in conjuction with Gaya Koleksi Raya 2015. Today is the whole day catalogue shoot for that collection, tomorrow I have an interview with Bella NTV7 and this Wednesday will be the campaign shoot for the aere x dUCK collection. Breatheee.
At the same time since my post aere On Air - Interview with the BFM Radio Station, other than working on the fashion show at Royale Chulan KL I've also been busy working on another new major collection for an upcoming fashion show happening in a few months time insyaAllah. I remember I hinted about these two fashion shows in my post Powering Confidence.
To be honest, I was super nervous before aere's first solo fashion show last week. I only had less than 2 weeks to prepare for it and the other collection for the upcoming fashion show. I was busy with preparing the looks, meetings with stylists, inviting guests, inviting media and sending out press releases, runninga contest on aere's IG, seating arrangements etc. After the show, I was on a natural high as the show went very well and smoothly. Alhamdulillah.
I'm so overwhelmed by the amount of help I received prior to the show, backstage during the show and mostly all the amazing support by those who came to see the show.
I really wished I could invite everyone who wanted to come to the show including more than 160 of those who entered the giveaway on aere's instagram to win the invites, but I could only pick 10. I also couldn't invite all family and friends as the seats were very very limited. I'm glad that everyone who RSVP'd turned up at the show except one or two.
Since I couldn't invite invite everybody to show, just a day before the show I decided to hire a personal videographer to capture the moments at the show. One of closest friends, my sister who's getting married the same week of the show couldn't make it to the show reminded me to record the show too for memories sake and for them to have a look at it as they were going to miss it.
I'm so excited to share more soon, about the behind the scenes, the people who helped out, those who came, about the show, about the collection itself and much much more but in the meantime, have a look at the 15 seconds video below for a feel of how the fashion show looked like. Will share the full video here in the blog pretty soooonn!!!
Thank you to everyone who came to the show and for supporting me through social media. I can't even begin to express how I really, really appreciate your attendance and support. I planned to meet each and everyone who came to support aere but I'm so sorry that I didn't get to speak to everyone as the number of guests who came as well as guests from the media really overwhelmed me personally. I hope that all of you had a lovely experience. I'd like everyone to know how much your support means to me. It means a LOTTTT!! Now, it's pushing me to give and share even more.
Thank you so so much everyone for all the love and support. I'm so inspired and motivated to work even harder.
