Style Diary: Dressing Up For Fashion Week | Clozette


Fashion week season has fashionistas all over the world clamouring to put together the chicest looks that can take them from the front row to the most coveted fashion parties in Kuala Lumpur, New York, and London. So we're looking back at some of the fashion picks we put together in collaboration with our friends from Rent-A-Dress during our stay in Kuala Lumpur for KL Fashion Week — bringing ease and luxury to our fashion week experience.


Travelling to a fashion destination for fashion week means having to pack a luggage full of outfits that'll last the entire week (or more!). But what if you could have a stylist to help you put together outfits at your fashion destination so you don't have to bring tons of luggage? All you need to bring are shoes, makeup, accessories, and you're good to go! So with Clozette covering all five days of KL Fashion Week, Rent-A-Dress took charge of our fashion looks and dressed us for selected shows throughout KL Fashion Week.


Watch the video as we unbox the looks put together by Rent-A-Dress for our KL Fashion Week coverage, then keep scrolling to see more of the outfits we wore to Fashion Week.


Dressing Up For A Glam Evening Show

For the evening show for HuaWei Night, we decided to dress up a little bit more. After all, when you're at fashion week, always have a day (or night) in mind when you go all out and dress up -- enjoying how fun and glam fashion can be.



A Touch Of Sophistication With Lace

Our Co-Founder and Creative Director picked this sweet lace dress by Monique Lhuiller for the AirAsia Runway Show, with her hair and makeup all glammed up and done for the front row. 




Daytime Chic

Last Day Of Fashion Week



On Becks: Lace Mix Shirt Dress by Self Portrait / On Kersie: Zalora / On Lystra:  Something Borrowed

For the last day of fashion week, we went with looks that we knew best. And that meant a mix of lace, a wrap-dress, and an A-line skirt. As it was the last show we attended as a team, we knew we wanted to finish the week strong in a coordinated colour palette.

Fashion and beauty play a huge role in our own self-expression. A simple accessory can level up an outfit and a simple swipe of lipstick can immediately change one's mood. So to inspire young ladies to get even more creative with their love for fashion and beauty, Lazada recently brought together today’s brightest names in different fields of style for an informative and inspiring afternoon.

The event revolved around the changes and perceptions on style and beauty in the age of social media and digital shopping. One of the event's highlights was the discussion on the effect of social media on fashion trends and individual style. It led to the conclusion that whether you're already an established blogger, style icon, or a simple fashion enthusiast, the accessibility to social media provides an avenue to inspire everyone with your own unique style. 

Plus, the event also put the spotlight on why digital shopping is one of the best and most practical things that happened as an effect of the growing beauty and fashion communities in the internet.



“Online shopping is great because you don’t have to decide (and spend) on the spot if you want to purchase an item. In fact, you can make a wish list when shopping online. Add the items in your cart. Sleep on it. Come back the following day and assess if you still want to push through with the purchase.” - Sassa Jimenez, Haute Couture designer

The discussion was followed by a makeup tutorial courtesy of L'Oréal. Angela Yeo, celebrity make-up artist and owner of beautylista.com, showed the audience how to achieve an easy “office chic” look that's perfect for the modern day, on-the-go woman.

Our favourite takeaway from the event was from Bea Constantino, one of the most celebrated fashion stylists in the country.

“Find your passion, always update yourself, and build your brand.” - Bea Constantino

The first STYLECON was truly a fun and educational event for all of us who speaks and breathes fashion.

Goth is one of the few fashion subcultures that are called 'alternative' for the very reason that they don't fit the trendy and preppy fashion category. But that was a thing of the past. With the fashion and beauty industry opening to diversity in the hopes of breaking stereotypes, what used to be a separate fashion entity now makes its way to Fall/Winter 2016 runways.

Modern Gothic or Gothic Glam is one of this season's hottest trends. From black rimmed eyes and dark lips to laces and chokers, this look is all about straying away from the cool girl look and going directly to full on badass. It can be intimidating at first but it's actually an easy look to pull off. 

So if you're in the mood to change up your look this season, here's all you need to know about this trend. 

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

It's more than just a throwback



Like the other trends that had its resurgence, the modern version of "the goth" is much more wearable. Going for hardcore piercings and platform boots are now up to your discretion and even hair streaks can be taken out of the equation. Upgrade your goth look to a chicer, more glam version by adding some glitter to your smoky eye or by sporting a red lip along with that all black outfit.  
--------------------------

Balance is key



Trying on an 'alternative' beauty and fashion trend can get you more excited than you think, which can lead to a tendency of going overboard. Just like any other beauty look, modern goth is all about keeping all the elements of your look in place. Keep in mind that the basic principles of bold eyes-nude lip or neutral eyes-bold lip also goes for this trend. So keep your MOTD clean and sleek without losing that mysterious gothic vibe.

Black may be the foundation of the goth look but since we're going for its revamped version, why not try the other moody shades in your makeup palette? Burgundies, deep plums, and royal blues can work its wonders to make this modern gothic look work. Just stick to a dark, fall-inspired colour scheme and you're definitely good to go.

It's more practical than you expect

If you're not a fan of mixing and matching your clothes or trying to blend that eyeshadow perfectly, this trend will make you jump in glee. The pale, almost-white complexion that the old goth trend started has taken a more 'naturally flushed' turn for 2016. A sweep of mascara, a little bit of blush, a bold lip -- that's your MOTD done! Who would have thought that this 'theatrical' trend will make its comeback to make our beauty routines easier than ever?
