LONDON FASHION WEEK | FASHION FOR CONSERVATION
Mar 15th, 2018
Those of you who have read my previous post, know that I attended London Fashion Week a couple of weeks ago. London is my favorite city in Europe because of its food, fashion scene, and breathtaking architecture — not to mention I was there for Fashion Week, which adds another level of euphoria. I felt that all the cells of my body were awakened the moment I landed and couldn’t wait to get a glimpse and this season’s upcoming fashion trends.
Fashion for Conservation (FFC) was the first show I went to. It was founded by three women determined to make a positive impact on the world through conservation-inspired couture. They combined their talents and passions to create fashion campaigns that educate consumers on animals and ecosystems, while donating funds to wildlife groups — all while doing it in fashion (pun intended).
FASHIONXT | FINALE
FASHIONXT night 4, the finale, was definitely most crowded and had the highest level of energy compared to the other nights. Many Portland celebrities, including NBA player Evan Turner, and fashion industry leading icons were all there to experience the last night of 2017 FashioNXT.
A group of friends came to join me
It was also the best night for me because 7 of my great friends all came to join me. I was able to take a lot of fun group photos with them, drink cocktails and dance as if no one was watching… Besides, after three nights of socializing and networking, I deserved a night of relaxation to simply have fun! : )
FASHIONXT | NIGHT 3
Nov 17th, 2017
Deciding on what to wear at a fashion show could be tricky. The pressure to piece something together that will leave an impression can be overwhelming. After the classic look for opening night, the casual look for night 2, my team and I decided I should go for a change.
Meeting winner of Fashion Accessory Competition: Nuciano
As one of three judges for this year’s Fashion Accessory Competition, I was happy to meet one of the designers I voted for, Nuciano. She specializes in handcrafted bespoke clutches with authentic swarovski crystals. I had fun talking to her, learning how she finds inspiration for her designs and how she made each bag uniquely beautiful.
FASHIONXT | NIGHT 2
Nov 3rd, 2017
As I was getting ready for second night of FashioNXT, I couldn’t stop myself from reliving the moments from the opening night. Even though I was sleep deprived from dancing till 2am, I still couldn’t wait to see what night 2 of FashioNXT was about to unfold.
By second night, I was a bit more relax with my look and my interaction with people. I decided to wear something lighter color and casual. I ended up with this Proenza Schouler white top and COMME des GARCONS grey shiny pant. I paired it with my recent favorite Cult Gaia bamboo bag.
Dancing the night away
My friend Alex , who is also my first Tango teacher, came and joined me at the After Party. Between Alex, my photographer and I , we had our mini dance party within the big party. We even danced Tango to the music that DJ was playing that night.
Designer Highlight: Myriam Marcela
WILD WOMAN was name of the collection being shown that night. It is a collaboration project between Fashion designer Myriam Marcela (left in below pic) & Textile Artist Laura Renée Maier (right in below pic).
Together, they create a touring exhibition of a contemporary film and wearable art pieces to be auctioned across the world with one hundred percent of the proceeds going to invest in women in Latin America.

FASHIONXT | OPENING NIGHT
Oct 19th, 2017
Last weekend was a great and crazy weekend! Not only did I attend all 4 nights of the Portland FashioNXT fashion show; but, also danced 4 nights of tango. I have attended FashioNXT for 5 years, this year being the first time I have been directly involved in this wonderful event:
- One of the 3 judges for the FashioNXT Fashion Accessories Competition
- Partnered local blogger to report the whole event for my lovely viewers.
I would like to take a moment to give a HUGE thanks to my amazing photography and videography team. I think my dear readers will agree they beautifully captured the collections and moments.
The Walking Bike
Before the show started, two people with a mobility impairment rode a walking bike on the stage to showcase the Alinker bike. The bike presents a collaboration between Daimler (One of the sponsors of FashioNXT) & Alinker. Tito, the event producer, asked the boy how his evening was going. His reply was, “It is the best day of my life”.

I also want to take this opportunity to introduce Zeree Bao, the videographer of this video. Before I met Zeree, I had seen one of his video work. I was very impressed by his way of filming and the overall feel of the video.
