Malaysia International Fashion Week (MIFA) is one of the most fashionably important event in the Malaysian fashion scene. Local designers especially budding designers can showcase their work on the runway.

On 7 Nov, I was privileged to attend Pretty In White's bridal collection by Celest. The show was held in Pavilion, KL. Models strutted the runway parading beautiful bridal dresses, cheongsams and evening wear. Celest incorporated few influences such layers of ruffles (latin), lace collar (victorian), fringes (cow girl-ish) into her designs. These made the bridal dresses trendy and modern thus suitable for those who wants the most fashionable bridal dress for the big day.

As for cheongsams and evening wear, the designs were contemporary with a twist. Expect the unexpected so to speak. Structural cuts, layers of ruffles, laces are few embellishments featured in cheongsam collection.

After the show, all guests were invited to a cocktail party at The C Club. New friends were made, name cards were exchanged, photos were taken whilst enjoying the delicious food in a modern setting of The C Club. It was an unforgettable yet fun experience.

Halloween is a time to unleash your creativity and to have fun, besides the scary tales and horror movies. Normally, I hardly get invitations to Halloween party. This year, I was fortunate enough to attend a Halloween party organized by The Peak Xperience.

I have no problem with the costume because I have 'Betty Rubble' (from the Flintstones) costume. The costume was made by me two or three years ago for company's annual dinner and dance. It was a fun experience to make the dress.

Other cool costumes are angel (remember Claire Danes in Romeo & Juliet), Greek goddess, Egyptian (think of Cleopatra), 20's flapper lady and perhaps French maid. For something extravaganza, go for Queen Amidala from Star Wars.

After the party and all, Betty costume is kept in wardrobe not sure when it would be useful again. But I will never forget the good time I had whilst wearing it.
