Two weeks ago, I remembered it was time to do something I haven’t done in awhile: really get dolled and dressed up to the nines.
For the highly-anticipated Zardoze fashion show at Audi Fashion Festival, us blog ambassadors (me, Dawn, Silver, Vanessa) got a chance to dress up in Zardoze gowns we chose. I chose a simple black and gold piece, which was velvet on the top, and had a very sexy halter-neck-slit cutout going on. I really loved it, and got many compliments on it that night. I paired it with my Cole Haan flat sandals (I know sandals and a gown seems weird, but no one could see my shoes and I wanted to be comfrotable – it was a long night!) and a DKNY gold clutch.
It was also nice to hang out with some of my blogging friends and meet new ones! Here I am with Pei, X-Wen, Andrea and Jemimah:
Afterward, for the show I sat with Andrea and Jemimah, who are the host of Clicknetwork’s That F Word! It was nice to finally meet them!
On to the show! The first show was their Ready-to-Wear collection. Here are some of my favorite pieces:
The show was awesome, I couldn’t help but noticed they had the gorgeous Lana Del Rey (love her music!) playing as the models walked the runway. There is something so haunting about her voice, and imagine her voice and the models swaying down the runway? Chilling! From casual chic outfits to full on gowns, I think my favorite from Zardoze are their gowns… they are so “out there” yet done in a really elegant, classy way.
The finale of the show was the “diamond” dress, modeled by acclaimed Indian model/actress Nethra Raghuraman. The dress features 130-carat diamond and is priced at S$500,000!
After the show, it was off to supper with Clara and Silver; where we went to MBS and I got a little truffle-fries crazy. Best part of the night: being driven around in these bad boys!
For our final destination for the night, we all made our way to the very gorgeous W Hotel Sentosa (my first time there) for the second Zardoze show, featuring their Panthea collection:
As you can see, the Panthea collection featured a simpler color palette, and I think my favorite has got to be the nude dresses. I was eyeing the white dresses too, I reckon they could even be wedding/ wedding reception dresses.
After the stunning runway show; Dawn, Estelle, Ava and I went to the after party, where Azealia Banks was performing:
Cute Instagram from Dawn arriving at the after party.
Zardoze seriously put on a fantastic night (I get exhausted thinking about how much work two shows in one night must’ve been!). I cannot thank them (and Estelle) enough for this once in a lifetime opportunity, I reckon I should also get dressed up and go to parties more, they are pretty fun! Either way, I had a wonderful night but this grandma checked out at 2am.
If you’re interested in checking out Zardoze, here is where they are available:
- Singapore: Robinsons Shopping Centre at Raffles City (Level 2) and Centrepoint Orchard.
- Malaysia: Pavillion, Kuala Lumpur
- Indonesia: MUSE and Galeries Lafayette, Jakarta
Zardoze specialises in outfits for that special occasion where you just want to dress up. Parties, balls, dinners, weddings, you name it. I’ll definitely be wearing more of Zardoze, so look out for that! I have my eye on a few pieces. :) Also, more info is available on their website, but they are also really active on social media! Here is their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
Also in case you were curious about what makeup I had on; I kept it pretty simple: Foundation was Giorgio Armani’s The Maestro, Sante eyeshadow No. 6, which is “Smokey eyes”; Clinique Midnight Blue eyeliner, Benefit Hoola Blush, K Palette for my brows and Stila’s lipgloss in Mango. I simply LOVED my dress and felt it was very “me” – the more glamorous me, that is! The hair was done by me, nothing special – just my usual “messy head”. ;)
P.S. Another special thing was as I was waiting at the taxi stand to go home… I bumped into one of my readers, Wendy!
