Back from Fashion's Night Out (FNO) at Lane Crawford at the IFC Mall, with lots of pictures for you guys!

I'm the lowest-maintenance person you will meet regarding fashion, so I quickly cobbled together a classy outfit. Dress by Padini, heels from Vietnam, simple rose earrings, and my own copper wire rings. Makeup was super simple because I think I might have lost my Maybelline gel liner brush (very sad), so I swept on some gold shadow to brighten my lids and layered my Rimmel lipstick.

Ignore the mountain of clothes behind; I just did my laundry and had to rush off!

Tutorial for the rings to come soon, so stay tuned!

When we arrived, the event was in full swing. Upon entry, I spotted one of Hong Kong's trendsetters, JJ Acuna a.k.a The Wanderlister, and really wanted to approach him but he was involved in conversation, so... moving along. Slightly starstruck - I quite enjoy his blog.

As a first-time attendee at FNO, I think it could've been made better by providing a floor plan, especially with the pop-up stores and customisation booths involved. Perhaps the organisers wanted to provide an element of surprise, but with the number of people and the layout of Lane Crawford at IFC Mall, a floor map or more signs would've made things easier to find. (We couldn't find the Sift macarons!!!... so sad.)


First thing up was blogger Peter Xu's colourful World of Style. The "ikat"-patterned coat on the mannequin was a lovely surprise (below). From a distance, it looks like it might be made of silk or satin. When you touch it, it's actually... furry.

Noooo missed the Bumbys by 5 minutes!

To cap off our fashion-filled night, bespoke shirt maker Ascot Chang had an exhibition at the ground floor atrium to commemorate their 60th anniversary and showcase their rich history. Read more about them in this South China Morning Post article. One cool section of the exhibition is the holographic display - do stop by if you're in the IFC Mall this weekend.
