Me-In (美/In) Presents Work, Play, Love fashion from Korea

Beautiful people, inner beauty and leading fashion forward, this is the theme and distinct trademark of Me-In (pronounced as “Mi – In” in Korean). Me-In, the Korean lifestyle online store is inspired by the “It Girl”, a young woman that possesses the indefinable quality of beauty and fashion. The Me-In “It Girl” is an absolute attraction without overly flaunting her sexuality and it’s all about being a Forever Girl!

I was honoured and very happy to be invited to view, enjoy, share and celebrate the modern “It Girl” style by Me-In, the Korean lifestyle online store in Singapore recently on 12th May 2014, at Zafferano in Singapore. KIM Hyejin, the very beautiful and gorgeous Creative Director of Me-In, who conjures very beautiful images of the “It Girl” and she is assisted by her stylist Song-yee Gil. Shopping at Me-In is indeed special and unique because you will get a head to toe experience to dress up!

I have to confess that I am an avid Korean Pop (K-Pop) and Korean Dramas (K-Drama) fan! I am also amazed and fascinated by the modern, colourful taste and designs of Korean fashion! Me-In strikes and leaves a deep impression with me when I saw their fashion and accessories during their presentation here in Singapore. Me-In is borne from the desire to serve the modern pragmatic women. For a modern woman in today’s society, their lifestyle is demanding and fast paced, and the modern woman requires her to be always ready for the challenges to meet for the day ahead.

During Me-In presentation and launch event, Me-In presented Work, Play, Love fashion themes and let me share with you more below!

Work

In Korea, work takes on a more formal take on fashion than Singapore (probably due to its four seasons climate). Nowadays, it is moving away from the traditional “stuffy” office look. Look at Creative Director KIM Hye Jin with the Work fashion theme; the classic colours on her dress offset what would traditionally be considered a design that is too informal for the Korean workplace. Along with her jacket to accompany her, it adds a modern cut and degree of sophistication.

Play

During the Me-In presentation, they showed 3 different fashion styles and themes of Play. I would like to share on this particular Play fashion style and theme that particularly caught my attention. The gorgeous model is wearing a top that has a unique rough texture and it takes a truly stylish person (shown by the creativity of Me-In) to take this fashion a step further and show their creativity through textures. An unbalanced design can make a fashion dressing go very wrong, however, Me-In fashion creativity shows how an unbalanced detail makes and adds a special touch to an otherwise ordinary miniskirt.

Love

During the Me-In presentation, they showed 3 different fashion styles and themes of Love. I would like to share on this particular Love fashion style and theme that particularly caught my attention. This beautiful, gorgeous and really cute model; is dressed up in a bright, distinctive and eye-catching Yellow colour! The current season is spring, and Yellow is the colour of the moment in Korea! The colour Yellow is bright, warm, and vibrant, giving people a lovely and joyous impression! Even though Singapore doesn’t have four traditional distinct climate seasons like Korea, ladies here in Singapore can also follow Korean style as they change throughout the year and it is definitely a fun way to vary your wardrobe with bright and colourful fashion clothing!

Me-In presentation of Work, Play, Love was very colourful and eye-catching! There were other fashion themes and styles showcased during Me-In presentation on Work, Play, Love and you can visit my Flickr photography collection to view them!

Ladies, you MUST VISIT Me-In website and be mesmerized by the beautiful images of the “It Girl” and discover the fashion and accessories for the modern pragmatic lady! For the Gentlemen, you MUST VISIT too and know what you can buy for your partner!

What amazes me about Me-In Korean fashion lifestyle store is that their fashion taste, creativity and designs are international and universal; it can fit in almost anywhere and everywhere in the world!

I would like to say a big Thank You to Me-In Korean lifestyle online store and Belinda Tan for the invitation to Me-In launch Work, Play, Love!

We had a fun time photographing the fashion catwalk from different locations, angles and perspectives. The best time for me was during Vilasere and HOM fashion labels fashion showcase during the evening, with the sun setting, giving it a nice blue hour skyline glow that allows me to capture the beautiful female models in their sexy lingerie outfits and the handsome male models in men’s underwear and leisure wear.

I couldn’t continue catching the rest of Japanese performances in action because we went backstage for a press conference by 2NE1 (something that I will not miss attending). The girls from 2NE1 were very pretty and very friendly, I leave the questions to the rest of the media folks at the press conference while I concentrate on photographing the beautiful and gorgeous 2NE1 girls! Here’s a photograph of Dara during the press conference! Do check out my 2NE1 collection on 500px and Flickr! After the press conference was over, we went back to the concert hall again. The action continued with the Korean wave, Ride The Hallyu Wave! The K-Pop Collection was hosted by the pretty and gorgeous Shauna Koun Han, she’s really mesmerising and a great host! The audience were treated to a feast of the upcoming and latest Korean fashion trends from JADE, DINT, TOM & RABBIT and Qnigirls. Their brands, style and designs caught my attention and it was a fun time photographing the sweet and pretty models showcasing the various Korean fashion brands!

Next up was 2NE1, the girls rocked the house down and the crowds were on their feet, cheering, waving their fan boards, light sticks, cheering, screaming and singing with one of their favourite K-Pop bands! The talented and beautiful 2NE1 delivered a high octane and high energy performances in this special segment with their hit songs and also from their upcoming album too! I loved their performance and I recalled the last time I saw 2NE1 in action was at Clarke Quay when 2NE1 came down for a surprise pre-concert performance, do check out the photos here! We were standing at the side of the stage watching 2NE1 perform since we were preparing to head backstage for another press conference. There was a priceless moment when CL of 2NE1 danced and walked to the side of the stage that I was standing, singing and engaging the crowds at my side, I managed to capture CL’s beautiful and sweet smile!

We were back again for another press conference, this time by Girls Generation!! There were 8 beautiful and gorgeous girls, Sooyoung didn’t join them this time due to her commitments back home in Korea. Being a fan of Girls Generation, I am like a fanboy and I can get close to my favourite Girls Generation members, Jessica, Taeyon and Tiffany! After the press conference and taking photographs, we returned back to the concert hall to continue watching the fashion and music extravaganza. We missed some parts of the Singapore segment, Style In The City earlier, however, we managed to catch the local Singapore Celebrity Models such as Zoe Tay, Tay Ping Hui and Jeanette Aw wearing creations from Depression, Mash-Up and Zenchi walking the fashion runway!

Creatively Thai 2008 Street Fashion Runway @ Vivo City

On 14th June 2008, after finishing my advisory and consultancy appointment with my client and his family at Vivo City, I went to walk around and discovered a fashion showcase event in the Central Court and South Avenue on Level 1.

Being curious, I decided to pop down and found about this fashion event called Creatively Thai 2008, showcasing young designers from Thailand with their unique and eye-catching designs. Moreover, on 14th June itself, there were 3 street fashion shows on 1pm, 4pm and 7pm, with models strutting down the stage showcasing various different fashion designers awesome designs.

Somehow, I didn’t know about this event until I was inside Vivo City, well, can’t resist the chance to do fashion photo shoot, therefore, I caught the 4pm and 7pm fashion show. It was very nice to see a new and unique style of fashion designs, although I am not a fashionable person at all and my selection of clothes would probably be classified as poor….. LOL …. In between 4pm and 7pm, caught up with Raymond and had coffee and snacks while he tried out my Macbook without much songs or photos added. Would let Raymond try out more when I get my transfer of data, information and stuff transferred across from my old laptop to new Macbook.

Anyway, back to the fashion show, at the 7pm time slot, it was getting crowded and I didn’t manage to get a good location to position myself, end up standing behind photographers and some of my photos were blocked by their heads, DSLRs and flashes ! Nevertheless, I still managed to get a few decent shots and it was enjoyable.

At the end of the show, I managed to get to know photographers there who were also photographing the 7pm fashion show, nice to chat with you George and the other fellow photographers there too !

Oh, this event was jointly presented by DEP – Thai Trade Center, Singapore and supported by Vivo City and the best surprise for me was having a chat with Thailand Tourism Embassy staff who were there for the 7pm fashion show ….. Nice to talk to you folks !

Hope you all enjoy the photos and more photos can be viewed at my flickr site ! Let’s support the fashion designers from Thailand too !

Asia WOW @ Raffles City – 29th March 2008

There had been a number of fashion show events held at various major shopping centres and after my earlier photo shoot at Central, I pop by for a chat with my friend Daniel Ong of the The Camera Workshop, before heading down to Raffles City for their fashion show event.

The fashion event was known as Asia WOW : The Catwalk, featuring 4 famous designers with their latest designs

  1. Kanchan Panjabi from Hong Kong
  2. Jun Escario from Philippines
  3. Teddy Or from Singapore
  4. Kiata Kawanda from Indonesia

The event was held on the 3rd floor of Raffles City and I could only watched from the side railings because I couldn’t get inside the show area. It was a real challenge due to the distance and the lighting available for this fashion catwalk event.

Had a fun time taking photos, admiring the beautiful models showcasing beautiful dresses and ladies fashion clothings.

Geometrics @ Central – 29th March 2008

Last Saturday on the 29th of March 2008, I went down to Central for another round of fashion catwalk photo shoot.

The theme was Geometrics – “Dominating the scene for office and party outfits are prints, checks, art-deco and monotones” – as listed on the official website showcasing the various fashion events.

I was a little bit late but still enjoyed myself thoroughly with the fashion photo shoot, great chance to improve my fashion/catwalk/portraits photography. Hope you folks enjoy the photos !

2008 Spring/Summer Fashion Show – Flora Revival @ Central

The Singapore Fashion Festival 2008 is coming to town and it will be held from 28th March to 6th April 2008. Besides the glamorous fashion events, shows and displays, major shopping centres and fashion brands also take the opportunity to showcase their latest range of fashion design.

 

The Central organised an arts and fashion event and there was the Spring/Summer Fashion Show – Flora Revival, showcasing feminine floral prints on beautiful dresses and blouses, that could worn for both office or casual.

It was a very fun event, great to back shooting models walking down on the catwalk and it wasn’t too crowded, managed to get a good location without being squeezed out. However, while I was happily taking photos of the models, my flash became cranky and gave me quite a number of problems. Therefore, some of my photos didn’t come out that well and would need more attention in post-processing.
