HONG KONG FASHION WEEK FW 2015 DAY 1 – Photo Diary from Backstage to Front Row

Hong Kong Fashion Week arrived again – the time of the year which designers present their collection after endless sleepless nights, Hungry models strut down the runway dreaming about the slice of pizza they will enjoy when the show is over and Fashion Bloggers get dressed up and rush from show to show with their eyes and hands permanently on their phones for instant ig and fb posts whenever we have a chance to breath.

This year thanks to Icreate Makeup Workshop, I have the honour to work backstage as a hairstylist as well as being invited to watch many of the shows by Fashion Week’s organisers at HKTDC. From backstage to front row here is a photo diary of some of the favourite moments of my day. (caution this is a very long post but please read on cause the best photos is at the bottom lol)

MOSCHINO SS 2015 – Think Pink and Dream

In every kids childhood, Barbie Dolls have been involved in our lives in some sort or form.  She is an icon of fantasy for every girl- a girl who never grows old or fat with a million different reincarnations and careers, several dream houses and mansions, a great boyfriend who she never marries but has several dream weddings just to wear the most beautiful wedding dresses and a wardrobe so big that she never have to worry about wearing the same outfit twice.

In the past decade she have transformed herself into a fashion icon.  Barbie is no longer just a fashion doll in pink dresses, she have been dressed by some of the biggest names in fashion. From Burberry to the iconic Versace dress, to Christian Louboutin who created several barbies with miniature versions of the iconic shoes and most recently Karl Lagerfeld.  In a way, Fashion Brands want to give fashionistas a piece of their beautiful clothes on the runway thu Barbie. She even have an instagram account which captures her fashion journey for Spring Summer 2015 Fashion Week.

barbie -the fashion icon

This season for the first time ever, she became the Muse for one of the biggest brands in the world – Moschino. For his second season with the fashion house, Jeremy Scott have used Barbie’s Mission – “think pink and dream” as the inspiration for his collection.  The collection merges iconic pieces of the house with the fun and glamour of Barbie.  The Collection began with many different reincarnations of Barbie- Roller Skates Barbie, Working Barbie, Cow Girl Barbie, Spa Barbie to name a few.Different Lives of BarbieThe Day Wear of the collection features many iconic pieces from Moschino with Barbie Touches.  In a way, this section of the show feels very much like what would Barbie wear from Moschino if shes a Every Day Girl?Moschino S/S 2015And of course the section which young girls would love when playing with Barbie, the evening wear.  From the Fashion Point of view, these are not elegant and will not be at the Oscars but they are certainly fun and those dresses will definitely be worn by Katie Perry in the future.evening
Some of the looks are inspired by barbie dolls in the 80s-90s.  One of the favourite parts of this collection for me is the fact that the inspiration goes both ways in the show.  For fans of Barbie, this is such a nostalgic and brought back many memories of my childhood.

The third look of the show was actually inspired by “Fashion Jeans Barbie” in 1981. The Jeans is just an adult version of the doll with the cowboy boots created in white.  The knit sweater was changed to a tee with the words “Totally Moschino” which has the exact font of “totally barbie” ads in the 80s. The Leather printed envelope clutch can be changed into a handbag for evening wear.

LOOK4
This knitted sweater dress and backpack ensemble reminds me alot of what girls used to wear to the park  in the 90s. Many fashion sisters will either go “I had that barbie backpack/sweater as a kid” or “”I wanted that barbie backpack/sweater as a kid but never had it” .  What Jeremy Scott did is to use these simple clothes which mattel produced in the 80s, blow it up in adult size with the  Moschino Twist. Thats the beauty of this collection… to have the clothes we wish we had or to relive our childhood memories
