These past few days, I have been blessed with a lot of opportunities. To cut the long story…
Nylon magazine, together with Guess Singapore, conducted an Instagram contest wherein all you have to do is post a creative #OOTD shot and tag #GuessxNylonFashionScout and #LoveGuessSingapore. Tremendous prize with simple mechanics. I took the risk and uploaded my best entry. (You can peek my entry at my Instagram account here)
One monday morning, I was browsing through my Instagram timeline until a notification popped up. GUESS what? Nylon sent me a message regarding my victory. I was shocked and astonished!
“So, what did you get?”
– Full GUESS outfit + a watch and a bag
– Star in a video for GUESS
– An invite for the GUESS x NYLON Fall ’17 Launch Party
Last October 18, The organizers contacted me and they told me to head to their GUESS store in Marina Bay Sands. I arrived there with a jubilant heart and I was tasked to pick ANY outfit in the store. Don’t worry! The women’s section is not included haha. Kidding aside. This gave me the opportunity to witness and to lay my hands on the new fall ’17 collection of Guess. It was difficult to choose a piece because the new collection is majestic and there’s a lot of goodies in the store. (I’ll be posting more details on each piece that I got in a seperate blogpost soon!)
After picking up the pieces that interest me the most, we had a video shoot. The video is a montage of all the winners fitting some pieces and browsing through the racks in the store. There are four fashionable winners in this contest, particularly 2 males and 2 females. You can check their Instagram accounts here! (@ahkoooo / @nurulali / @mianbaobreadpan) Shoutout to “Goodmanfilms” on the promethean cinematography and rendering. The video was presented on the big screen of GUESS during the Launch Party.
Guess x Nylon Fall '17 Launch Party
The event was held in the GUESS store in Marina Bay Sands last October 20. The launch party started off with Josiah Chua presenting the latest Fall ’17 collection of GUESS and he also interpreted each piece onto how we can sport and play with it. After the presentation, the winners were officially announced and we were interviewed about our style and logic about harmonizing the outfit that we copped. The event was also accompanied with soothing and lively music and mobile bar with cocktails.
Overall, this experience is definitely for the books. Imagine how a simple #OOTD photo can take you off to another dimension of fashion and culture. Meeting new people who are also interested in your craft is unbelievably amazing. I would like to deeply extend my gratitude to NYLON magazine and GUESS Singapore for conducting this contest because it created new opportunities for aspiring people like me.
Gwan Big Up Yourself!
