LMFW; Day Two

Finally, here I am writing this long overdue post of the second and final day of London Modest Fashion Week 2018.

After Edeline Lee’s presentation that Sunday morning, my sister and I made our way straight to Victoria House. We were slightly behind our schedule, but thankfully, still had enough time just before the first show started at 1:45 p.m.

Met some of Mum’s friends.

The first show to be showcased were few collections of the modern basic sportswear for the Hijabis. I’m not a sport person, but they were great collections to look at and perhaps, to consider buying (though I can’t guarantee on the latter statement).

These three ladies were Hannah Sufrin (founder of House of Lancry), Vivy Yusof (co-founder of Fashion Valet) and Bushra Shaikh (founder of Iila Collection and one of the candidates on The Apprentice 2017). They talked about how they juggled between marriage, family, faith and business.

My sister isn’t a big fan of going to events, especially if there’s no one or nothing that poke her interest. Though as soon as she found out that Vivy Yusof (middle) was going to give a talk at LMFW, she instantly told me to book an extra ticket!

I’d mentioned and written a bit about Vivy in my Day One post – if you want to read more about her – but she’s basically like a Malaysian version of Victoria Beckham.

Vivy was just like I’ve seen her on the first day, surrounded by people, Malaysian and non-Malaysians, waiting for their turn to take a selfie with her.

Little Sis couldn’t get my camera to take a picture of me and Vivy at first, so we had to changed our spot few times. Vivy even waited as I sorted my camera out and finally, these pictures were taken. All I could say is that, she was just as charming as everyone says she is.

Fifteen minutes earlier before the second show begun, I was already be seated when suddenly I had to go to the restroom. I’d missed the first catwalk, and by the time I went back to the Catwalk Hall, the models were still strutting down the runaway. Thought that I couldn’t possibly walk through the runaway while the show was going on, so I stood patiently at the side while waiting for the right moment to sprint back to my seat.

My sister saw me and she was probably cursing in her head while telepathically telling me to try and make my way back to the empty chair next to her. Without my camera, I’d also missed few good outfits to take picture of as well. What a bummer.

After three good shows, I finally managed to slip through the gap and walked across and back to my seat. Phewww. Even though it only took me less than six steps, it was still pretty embarrassing.

Absolutely love the white and blue dress.

Last but not least, by Muna Khalif. Definitely my favourite designer of the day.

Nevermind missing some of the outfits at the beginning, I could barely snap whatever left for the day as I realised my camera was flicking the red light, telling me that it was its bedtime. Great.

So, that was it for London Modest Fashion Week 2018!

I had a brilliant time throughout the two days, witnessing all the amazing designs and meeting all the great influencers. And I wish to do it again in the future!

Thank you for reading this post.
May you have happy thoughts always,
Ain
