Hello! Happy 2014 to everyone!
Sorry for the absence but here’s the exciting news especially for Singaporeans who love Tokyo fashion!
I am sure you all know about JRunway, a multi-label Japanese apparel concept store in Plaza Singapura.
I was there with Qiu Qiu and Misako during the grand opening in 2012. You can read the full blog post here.
More than a year has passed now and i heard JRunway has expanded a lot in terms of new fashion brands and there are more activities going on their websites too. I haven’t been back but i wish to visit soon when i go to Singapore again!!!
Anyway their latest project is their Japanese free-paper style fashion magazine, which i think is a fantastic initiative to bring Japanese fashion closer to people like you and me. And in the upcoming issue, it would be….

A JRunway X Cheesie collabo!
I was so honored to be representing JRunway for their 2014 Spring Summer collection and appearing in the fashion magazine exclusively. They wanted me to do a fashion shoot in Dec last year (which was just about 2 weeks ago), but i was already 4-months + pregnant that time. Although i was not showing much yet, i was not sure if i could fit into all the new items because the SS collection are mostly body-flaunting, tight fitting coordinates.
But JRunway people believed that everything will run smoothly, so during my trip in Tokyo we had a fashion photoshoot with a professional Japanese team. I’m sharing some of the behind-the-scene photos here!!
The photoshoot only started 6PM at night due to the studio’s schedule. I told the danna i’d probably be back after midnight (since i’m so used to all the photoshoot overtime in Malaysia so i made a mental preparation) and he was like, that’s not gonna happen. It’s Japan.
Hair make by Yuko. She is really really super awesome and quick!
There are a total of maybe 30 different coordinates i had to wear that day (which i was quite shocked to find out. Normally 10 outfits would take something like a whole day in Malaysia), but the team was insanely amazing. They totally set the mood right, each change takes less than 5 minutes and each coordinate snap was about only 1-2 minutes, Chinami gives her approval and they were like OKAY NEXT!
So the entire photoshoot took something like 3-4 hours total. I couldn’t believe it.
And turned out all the shots are really quite nice with perfect lighting and angle, i was super amazed how they managed to catch a good angle in just a few snaps. Cuz normally i alwayst think look better on my phone iPhone-selfie than any other professionally-taken shots :X
Chinami from JRunway showed me some of the final photos and i was super happy with them! To be honest i’ve never had photoshoot this efficient and fun (normally i get super tired and quite stressed out) i would really love to do it again.
Can’t wait for the magazine to be out!!! It’s scheduled to be published in Feb, so do check them out!!
