Over the weekend, I had the honour of being invited to the launch of the very first fashion festival to be held in Sabah. Starting on the 4th of February 2012 in Suria Sabah, the 6 week showcase of local fashion talent is organized by Jeffie Jeff in conjunction with the Breeze Model Search.
Being the launch and first day of the exhibition, guests were entertained by emcee Iskandar, dancers from the Gema Tari troupe, a singing performance by local singer Angelina Perete and her daughter Estee, and the highlight of the event - a fashion show featuring designs from four relatively new fashion designers, modeled by finalists of the Breeze Model Search.Gema Tari dance troupeSpeech by the organising chairman, the multi-talented Jeffie Jeff!
To start off the show, Nina Elaina Designs presented her collection "Frosted Flowers" to an upbeat tune that had the models skipping and snapping their fingers all down the runway!Sorry for the blinding.. That was the spotlight on stage.. Thought this photo was cute so wanted to upload it anyway.. =)

The event ended with refreshments provided by Bella Italia and Le Safron, and i got a chance to snap a shot with my dear friend Jeffie before he was whisked away with congratulatory handshakes and hugs! Haha..
Congrats Jeffie, and we await the next fashion event in KK.. Let's make heads turn! =D
