I've been through multiple "epiphanies" in school and feeding off a lot of great fashion and I hope I'll be able to move on to phase 2 of this.

Personal blogging isn't my thing. I actually hate writing. I SUCK AT IT!

But after countless failed attempts at trying to get shit together like what I've done on here, I've managed to re-think and revamp my container of thoughts into an actual brain child that I can finally be proud to call my own.

But no, not jinxing myself before the project takes flight.

And also, note to self - to upload all my portfolio related BS onto the inter webs soon.

I'm a social media whore. But I'm just generally a lazy bastard. OH LIFE.

Here's a random sketch in a long while - I've been obsessed with menswear and how it could be tailored for women at some point. But I'll keep that all in check for a bit.

Lots of things have been very fleeting - my emotions and all that's around, and I've been trying to figure out what makes the best sense.

I've always wanted to remain committed to documenting my self progression, but in the midst of pursuing unnecessary details, I've lost sight of what I've always wanted to work towards. Thankfully, I've managed to find my way around and get a head start on a new "project" - aka part-time school.

Finally decided to pursue fashion design as a part-time student and hopefully I'll be able to make some of my sketches into real clothes hahah.

I'm more alone than ever but it doesn't mean I won't get through this.

Hello weekend!

I guess this one's got a lot to do with movement and abrupt changes.

And with the following:
Another all-time favourite of mine:

Inspired by Bjork #1

I've been missing in awhile and trying to figure out what I want exactly. It's funny how I feel divided, struggling and then deciding who I want to be.

Nonetheless, Happy 2015 - New Year and new start(s) as they always say. Am just trying to motivate myself and get my life in order (I guess).

This is one dead space. But I thought I would put it to good use since I'm working on some stuff with le partner in crime. Thanks Nic, only retards like us would think of shit like that <3 (Do not judge my stupid fonts and colours hahah)


And find the following, check it out in order:

Moon - Official Video 

Crystalline - Official video
(also my favourite out of the lot)

Crystalline - Live on Jools Holland

Virus - MV Edit
"Released as the third single, each song in the album features a theme related to nature. In "Virus", Björk explores "fatal relationships" such as the one between a virus and a cell, as Björk explained in an interview: "It's a kind of a love story between a virus and a cell. And of course the virus loves the cell so much that it destroys it." "

"The lyrics to "Virus" talk about "dangerous relationships", symbiotic relationships in which one organism is parasite for the other and takes a benefit, even changing the other's behavior. This fact is used as a metaphor between 'love' and 'parasiting'."

Here's Tyler, on the bridge, from Federation Square

It's been awhile since I've written anything on this space. All I have on my mind is work and more work. I'm well absorbed into getting things done that I tend to forget the most ordinary things that are part of my routine or things to do. But it's normal when you're getting steam off your back isn't it?

So recently, I went back to Melbourne as part of Marcella, to be an assistant (I would like to think minion actually hahah) at the pop-up store. It's our debut down under, and a great coincidence that I managed to grab a grand opportunity like that to experience Melbourne differently.

Anyway, the point of this post was because I've finally done something new after a long while - a mens' photo shoot (first official one and a dapper one at that hahah). It's tiring getting all the research and everything together, but so worth it when you see the end results. I've never had to tell people or direct them on what to do, let alone put a whole shoot together so it was a rather intimidating experience. But there were tonnes of great learning points, and I really have to thank my friends who lent their helping hands for this to be a success.

Here are some of the amazing shots from our little photo shoot for Marcella in Melbourne:

Special thanks to Adam (left) and Tyler (right) for being such great sports!

Got swag?

Some of our behind-the-scenes shots, taken by Kevin, our photographer as pictured and also, the man who hired me, Chang Wen hahah.

For those of you who are interested in doing some collaborative work on film or video with the man behind the main photos you see here, check out Kevin and his site here. He specializes in street photography and is definitely open to options so please, bombs away!

I can't thank everyone enough again for helping me make the shoot happen, as well as those who came by to grab shirts. Thank you! Not forgetting Nigel Tan, aka the man who volunteered to be my assistant for the day... In fact, all the time, and for being ever so supportive to make Melbourne a smooth one for me (:

This matters so much to me, because I've worked my ass off, and it finally came together. Being back in the right place and with the right company made it worth the mile. I guess I'm just really glad all these things fell in place.

In any case, I'm excited to start on new projects. Hopefully, I'll be able to make time and resume some of my old work (lots of overdue ideas)... Things are starting to slow down a little, which is great because it's always important to take a breather and appreciate the people and things around you. I really don't want to lose track of what I have to do as I give bits of myself to my environment that I can never have back. I guess the key is to finding the right balance.

But in other news, everything shall, and is going to be,
nothing, but amazing.

Good day x

Muse: Chloë Sevigny

So you may or may not know... Chloë Sevigny is one of my major girl crushes and I'm still not quite over it.

Some of you may know Chloë as an actress and some of her major performances in movies like American Psycho. Some may remember her from her Opening Ceremony collaboration which is one of my absolute favourites.

That all being said, I would steal her wardrobe, just because.

Still not getting over her Opening Ceremony collab. And yes, she wears the pants.

Forgive me, but I just had to stick her photos all over my space to liven it all up a little. But hey, it's legit to have a girl crush alright.

All that muse aside, it's been rather quiet for a bit... Well actually, it's been hectic lately, trying to fit the bill and making the cut for my J.O.B. It's actually something I've always thought about doing, but we don't always live in an ideal world do we? Hahah. But in all seriousness (and if you were curious to find out what's actually up), Ive just started doing a little bit of everything (I guess it's just about everything) with a local custom menswear label, Marcella.

In any case it's been a whirlwind for the past two weeks or so as I try to learn the ropes of being a capable being and it looks like I might have to get used to it. Whoever said it was all going to be a piece of cake really needs to have cake in his/her face right now.

Anyhow, it's been quite a great run and I'm excited for what's to come. Progress is key. Fingers crossed I'll be able to create something real in the long run. Things are definitely getting exciting. Plans, plans, plans.

And... Before I actually go, please have a listen:
Kimbra is also seriously amazing in this Miami Horror song.

My first collaboration - with the talented T. JiaJia <3 

I have been keeping my excitement in, waiting to share this series of photos! Everything has its first and here's one for the road - I finally had the opportunity to style for one of my friend's 60s themed shoot. It was supposed to be a chill-out just-for-fun submission for some sort of a contest but regardless, I'm in love with the end product.

Another one of my favourite shots in my blue beret hahah

Working together on this first "collaboration" was quite a random event. Jia Jia and I were actually secondary school friends who played ping pong together and caught up right here in Melbourne due to coincidence. She's one of the most patient people I've ever met, plus her stunning photography is something I've admired, so I guess it's only natural this worked out awesome.

It's an odd, yet nice kind of funny to see models put on random pieces from your wardrobe and rock it like how it's supposed to look. I have a tonne of clothing I don't always wear because it's way too hot in Singapore yet I'm obsessed with all the nautical, school-girlish and knitted stuff. There were some different looks Jia Jia helped put together for the girls too, which came off really sweet. I wasn't quite the pro so it was great she helped out.

In any case the bubbly school-girl heroine thing was quite a feast for the eyes. Check out some of the polaroids Jia Jia took <3

Also if you're interested, check out the rest of the photos from this 60s girly pop heroine series via Fashioning or on PhotoVogue itself.

Last but not least, you'll have to check out more of Jia Jia's awesome work - click here or through:

Life is so full of surprises; I never thought I would pull this off! Thank you again Jia Jia <3

On a sidenote, I will probably be heading back to Melbourne for Katy Perry's tour (I am an ultimate fan girl)!!! I cannot wait to be back here and hopefully do more of this again! Good times (;
