JRunway - Japan's fashion heaven right here!

Hello!!! Remember the fashion show i was talking about few posts back?! At JRunway, with Cheesie and many other celebrities from Japan involved?! Gonna share about the event that day now! =D

If you were there, you MIGHT be able to spot yourself in my pictures haha ^.^ If you weren't able to make it that day, don't worry, enjoy the pictures and check out JRunway for yourself when you can!

JRunway is located at:
Plaza Singapura new extension

Arrived early morning that day for rehearsal and hair / makeup! Love this picture taken with the Casio ex-zr1000! Will share more another time ^.^

The HUGE and spacious Japanese multi-label concept store, JRunway.

JRunway is the first in ASEAN to bring such concept to the fashion scene outside of Japan.

They bring us a good mix of Japanese fashion labels and with that good mix including different styles from the streets of Japan, and now we can shop and feel JAPAN fashion scene at our convenience!

What style are you? Sexy, cute, sweet, sunshiney / beachy, casual, street style, hip hop, gothic, lolitha, mode, what? You name it, i'm sure JRunway has it already =D And it's all from Japan!!!

Alright back to the backstage! Haha ^.^

Racks after racks of clothings in different stations @.@ Damn stress one if i am one of the models. Heng me and Cheesie both only got one outfit to model each haha.

When you walk into the shop, keep walking you'd see this mini paradise!!! FILLED with kawaii makeup and accessories all from Japan =DDD

Me and Cheesie both had our makeup done ourselves and have Number76 Style to do our hair!

Cheesie say my iPhone 4 de camera suck never mind, my new camera damn good haha.


The mini paradise i mentioned just now..

Is where..


ANYTIME (of course during their operation hours lah), ANYDAY..


You can use all the good Japanese makeup from the makeup counters at JRunway for free!!! they have hair curlers there too!!! So have fun!!! If you like what you use, please buy a new one from them lah! Haha ^.^ I got no time to shop that day btw =( The Q was crazy.

Nearing show time, everyone getting crazy busy.

Cheesie decided to have her hairstyle changed lol.

We decided not to camho with the caucasian models, we camho with ourselves then at least we all look good. If we camho with them suddenly we become less chio =X Lolol.

Cheesie looking good ^.^ Also don't know if she's werking mode / princessy / cute.

I am obviously trying to act cute. Lololol.

Josh helped me snap some pictures of the event that day cox i cannot go out ma, supposed to be hidden at the backstage haha. You know, like how special guests should be haha. And the crowd WAS massive!!! This is not the actual guest, this is just a small part, people from the media.

Nami San with another special guest, Sharon Au and Elim Chew boss of 77th Street!!! =OOO

And then there's me! Hahaha ^.^ Doing the interview for media.

Cheesie saying her piece. On stage with us, Tatsuya (left) and Taku (right). They are from one of the top modelling agency in Japan, BARK in Style.
And i yada on. Haha.

I was being asked what i think about JRunway.

Share here again what i think i said!

I think it's a very exciting project especially for people who are into Japanese fashion. Cox now you guys can find the more popular Japanese brands from JRunway shop, and you can touch and see the products for yourself, and you don't have to wait for the items to be shipped to you.

So yeah lor! Also ah, i add on a bit here lah, on stage i very shy =X Hahahah.

I think JRunway is not just a shop where you shop and go, you can really spend your time there, playing around with the makeup, changing in and out of the different labels, get advice from their trained Style Concierges, who will assist you in cordinating an outfit or give you suggestions on what you may like to try for your special events etc. You can ask them anything about dressing up ^.^

And then they will be able to find you something that will match you.

It's pretty much like the shops in Japan. When i was there, i notice their shop assistants are all very very helpful and will tell you which top will look nice with which pants/ skirts or which accessory you can match your outfit with. Like shopping with your friend who has good fashion sense! =D

So long as you wanna dress up, wanna look good, wanna have fun, wanna experience the Japanese fashion culture, then you gotta CHECK OUT JRUNWAY!

They have shelves after shelves of outfits from numerous Japanese labels.

There has been a lot of raves about the selection of bikinis at JRunway. So if you're a beach girl, you have to go pick up something for yourself!

Me and Cheesie ^.^ My blog is like 1/8 her blog already always see her face one hahaha.

Misako Aoki was there to grace the event too, she's a very famous lolitha star from Japan!

AND!!! JENG JENG!!! JRunway is the only place you can find EMODA items in store!!! They have quite a huge selection of EMODA merchandise for a multi-label shop!
Guys, don't be jelly! A lot of brands for you to choose from also!!!

One of the accessories corner. You gotta spend a loooong time there to go through everything haha.

Group shot with the hairstylists from Number76Style who did our hair that day! If you visit KL they are your best bet for nice hair cox they have Japanese doing your hair also ah ^.^

Josh visit the backstage and take one of me before the show starts. He can get backstage pass not becox he's my bf lah, it's becox he shot for JRunway ecommerce shop so they are all friends.

I am not sure how many of you came to say hi to me, but thank you!!!!!

And the Q goes all the way. Japanese fashion must be really sought after!
Or is it me and Cheesie =X Lololol.

And it doesn't stop. People just keep flooding in ^.^ Happy for JRunway!!! Cox they really spent a looong time planning for this and a loong time to execute the plan! Paid off well!!! =DDD

The pre-opening launch to media only. So they get to shop first. Followed by the fashion show!

Some styles spotted in the first show, Punk/ Street style, casual male apparels, sweet floral..

Lots and lots of camera!

We were invited back on stage to say how we feel about guest-appearing in the runway show. I just say i hope i do a good job lah. But actually i wanna say "I don't fall or trip over i very happy already" Lolol. True feelings.

Next set of outfits!!! If you like to play it safe with black but don't wanna look boring, play around with prints/ details! Find your cordinates at JRunway!

Misako San donning another lolitha outfit ^.^ Looking cute!

One of the cordinates i like!

Sigh why like this. Arrange for me to appear after a top-model looking female model lolol.

"B*tch i'm fabulous!" Hahaha ^.^ Someone (i forgot who) told me my outfit look like one of the vamps in Twilight. I think the vamp is Dakota Fanning play one. Haha. A bit.

Favourite picture of myself on stage ^.^ The dress i am wearing is from EMODA ^.^

Cheesie after me. This shot of us, i believe she was asking me "How, your face got twitch or not!" Lololol. Simi sai. 我们就在那儿聊起来 hahaha.
Then she's like "Fashion show is easy, i can strut with my eyes closed" Lolol. Literately.
Cheesie werking it like a boss.
Say real one i also don't know why i keep smiling so widely and forgetting i got red lipstick on =OOO Really all also got red lip stick stain on my front tooth lor =( I think i too happy already lol.
Thank you girls for coming and for hanging out at the makeup area!!! =DDD You all so shy, can use the makeup one but you all keep waiting haha!
The first girl i put makeup on! Hello, Adrianne! ^.^ She's only 14 yro omg.
And one more.. ^.^
And one more! I think got a few more but i don't have pictures!

You know what i learnt!

I learnt that no matter what age you are / what face shape you are / how tall you are, no matter if you're cute or cool, so long as you doll up, you can and you will look good!

And if YOU want to be a star, you can.

And if YOU want people to notice you, they will.

And if YOU want to be a model, you will be.
