--------------------------


When the idea of throwing the ultimate social party of the year first came into fruition, the first thing that came to mind was "Can we really pull this off?" As a social community of savvy and connected females across Asia, we definitely felt the pressure to create an event that celebrates and represents what Clozette is truly about: a close-knit community of fashion & beauty enthusiasts coming together to Create, Share, Discover, and Shop. 

So with that in mind, we set-out to launch Clozette Style Party at Suntec City, North Atrium. Together with our lead partners ASOS, LANEIGE, REDS HAIRDRESSING, and SUNTEC CITY, we created a 3-day event that truly encompasses the DNA of what it means to be part of Clozette. We brought together our Clozette Ambassadors, Social Media Influencer Francesca Tan, and International YouTube Stars Sunny Dahye and Morgan from The Beauty Breakdown to be part of our first-ever Beauty & Fashion Show



We then created a space for all our guests to easily share their experience through Instagram-worthy activities and a photo-printing booth courtesy of our friends from Nuren.sg. Since discovery is such a big part of what Clozette is all about, we also introduced up-and-coming brands and launches such as the delicious coffee from Cafebond, the luxurious spa facilities at Calla Spa, the new makeup collection by Laneige, nail and brow-shaping services by Milly's, the new SS16 collection by ASOS, and notable Asian designers from BYSM, Womb, Straits Establishment, and Mporium.

And finally, we also gave our community another reason to shop at their favourite online boutiques such as Caraters, Reebonz, ASOS, and CommandP; or get their hair done at REDS Hairdressing through discounted vouchers and freebies available at the event. 

Since we're still buzzing from our wonderful 5th anniversary party, scroll through for a roundup of some of our favourite moments from #ClozetteStyleParty in Singapore!

--------------------------


Descendants Of The Sun Makeup Demo

& YouTube Stars Meet and Greet




With the hype around Laneige being a part of Descendants of the Sun (did you spot Doctor Kang quickly touching up with the Two Tone Lip Bar during the 1st episode?), we spent an evening with Laneige's Head Makeup Artist, Tina, for a quick makeup demo recreating Song Hye-Kyo's look on YouTube Star Sunny Dahye.

The demo was followed up with a fun Meet & Greet Session which gave YouTube fans a chance to mingle with Sunny and Morgan from The Beauty Breakdown.

Streaming LIVE on Facebook



A big part of what makes Clozette unique is our regional community. So we wanted to give everyone a chance to experience #ClozetteStyleParty no matter where they may be. So we streamed Live On Facebook a special interview with our guest stars at Studio M Hotel and even the entire Beauty & Fashion Show at Suntec City North Atrium!




Snapping our favourite looks from Reebonz




If you dropped by at the event on the 21st and 22nd April, you'd have seen our fashion installation courtesy of Reebonz, the trusted online platform for luxury products. It gave everyone a sneak peek at some of the looks presented on the runway as well as a chance to win Reebonz vouchers at our Snap & Share Instagram Contest.


A dose of good coffee from Cafebond




Everyone was treated to a good dose of cold brew coffee courtesy of our friends from Cafebond who were selling these at $2 per bottle. With the weather heating up in Singapore, the bottle of cold brew was a great way to refresh and recharge!


Primping our nails and brows at Milly's




What's a fashion and beauty party without a bit of pampering? Our guests were treated to free nail and brow-shaping services courtesy of our friends from Milly's!



Spinning the wheel at Suntec Rewards for instant prizes




Everyone loves to win instant prizes and our friends from Suntec Rewards made everyone's day with their Spin-The-Wheel-And-Win booth. Guests had the opportunity to win selected Suntec City shopping and dining vouchers.


Getting creative at the Clozette Beauty Awards booth




For those who wondered about the art behind amazing flatlays, our Clozette Beauty Awards booth gave guests an opportunity to get creative with their beauty flatlays, using the winning products from Clozette Beauty Awards 2015.


Fun colourful hair extensions & golden tattoos




Sometimes a bold strip of colourful hair extension is all it takes to add a fun pop of colour to your look. Our Clozette Team was on hand to give guests a quick hair makeover through colourful hair extensions and also got them all blinged up with golden tattoos.



Printing our Instagram photos at the Nuren.sg Booth



One of the best ways to remember a fun and exciting day out is to have photos taken and printed right on the spot. Our friends from nuren.sg had a booth all setup and ready to print the fun, fashionable, and just downright adorable photos of our guests.



Instant K-beauty makeovers from Laneige



To get our guests primped and Instagram-ready for our Beauty & Fashion Show, the K-Beauty experts from Laneige were there to give quick on-the-spot makeovers. This also gave guests an opportunity to try their best-selling BB Cushions and the latest colours from their Two Tone Bar Collection. 


Enjoying yummy treats from Famous Amos




To satisfy our sweet tooth and our love for chocolates, Famous Amos prepared special Clozette Style Party themed cookies as well as a selection of yummy treats for our partners who came to support us at the event.



Relaxing at Calla Spa before the show



The hours before a runway show can be the most hectic. So after an early call-time for rehearsals, our Runway Stars were given the opportunity to relax, unwind, and fill their tummies with delicious food at the luxurious facilities of Calla Spa.


Getting a peek at what happens backstage




Ever wondered what happens backstage at a runway show? For the #ClozetteStyleParty Beauty & Fashion Show, we set-up a special Backstage Live activity space for guests to watch our Runway Stars get modelled up for the show with the help of Laneige Makeup Artists and hairstylists from REDS Hairdressing.





Spotting the diamond earrings from Caraters




For the Pretty Woman segment for the Style Squad Show, Caraters added a touch of shine to the looks by accessorising the Runway Stars with a gorgeous pair of diamond earrings. Spot the diamonds on Clozette Ambassador Cassandra!


Backstage photo snapping at the Balloon Wall




To add a celebratory vibe to our 5th anniversary party, our friends from THAT Balloons brought in a HUGE balloon wall that not only served as the backdrop of our runway but made for a great photo-wall for our runway stars backstage.


Taking home goodies courtesy of our partners




As with all Clozette events, our guests also got to take home a wide range of goodies from our partners, such as product samples, our cute Clozette mirror, and fun fashion and beauty vouchers.



Ending the day with new friends




The 3-day event was all about connecting and making new friends along the way. So thank you to everyone who was a part of our 5th Anniversary. You have all made the event fun, memorable, and definitely the Ultimate Social Party Of The Year!

They say that what we do with our hair reflects our mood and personality-- like when we get a haircut, most people assume that it's either you’re getting ready for a big change or possibly trying to get over a break up. But sometimes, getting a haircut is not something we’d really go for just to change up our look.

So if you're looking to make a hair change but aren't quite ready yet for a big haircut, read on for our hair-accessorising tips to instantly revamp your look!

--------------------------

The ever-so versatile headband



When in doubt, just know that there’s a headband for any occasion. If you’re always on the go but still want to go for a neat and styled ‘do, snap on a headband! If you have a minute or two to spare, you can even put your hair in an updo for a more refined and elegant look. 
Be sweet and subtle with ribbons



Add a splash of colour to your daily ‘do and say goodbye to plain old ponytails. Ribbons are great if you want to put a hassle-free twist to a simple and classic look.



Go fancy with a barrette



Swap your typical hair tie for a metallic-coloured barrette to seal your updo. Perfect for special events, this can transform a casual-looking hairstyle to a glamorous new look without the added effort of complicated twists and knots.


Put on a bandana if it’s a retro kind of day



Whether you’re going for an updo or you want to let your tresses loose, pair a simple bandana twist on top of your head with a bold coloured lippie for a classic retro fashion look.


Aim for a fresher look with flower crowns



Since it’s that time of the year for Spring/Summer fashion statements, why not go for a flower crown? You don’t have to worry about going through the hassle of putting it on and styling your hair so much. Just put it in place and you’re ready to go! Look fresh, carefree, and live out your fairytale dreams with this hair accessory.
