Noir by (X) S.M.L in Plaza Indonesia Fashion Week

After being excited for weeks, I have finally found my way to attend Plaza Indonesia Fashion Week 2013. PIFW is actually an annual event, held by the awesome Plaza Indonesia. Before, I have actually attended a Nylon Fashion Festival which was actually held in Plaza Indonesia, but Plaza Indonesia didn't wholly organize that event, so I thought PIFW must be way too different from Nylon Fashion Festival. And yes, it was so different. 

I got the Invitation by following Plaza Indonesia's twitter. and one day, they tweeted about getting invitations from the operation manager of the "Noir by (X) S.M.L" fashion show. I was sooo excited I texted my friends to request the invitations so we could go together. They were also excited, but none of them came due to the undetectable problems. So I asked my sister, Tsabita, to accompany me to that annual event.  

I have attended few fashion weeks before, like UI Fashion Week, Indonesia Fashion Week, Jakarta Fashion Week (Even though I didn't get the chance to seek a fashion show in JFW). And none of them... I mean none of them offered free drinks and snacks. 

I was just sitting with my sister, and people were like hanging out nearby the bar. And I thought they were buying drinks, until a waiter, came to me, and offered me a tiny choco lemon biscuit with almond top on it. And I thought, "oh damn, they're free."
I can never control myself for free things. No way. I didn't even think about self image or dignity issues that I have, so I took the biscuit, and took this awesome strawberrish tea.
For free, for real. 

One of those things I love about my sister, is her polaroid camera. It successfully took pictures of me, her, us, and some woman models. 
When I was signing the guestbook, I saw two models just showed up from the lounge room. 
I thought, "damn that lady is surely a woman version of Monas." (Cause she was so tall, way way taller than me.)
And I told my sister, "Let's take pics with the models."
And she was like, "Okay, sure."
But none of us began the action, until those models were about to leave... So I hurried myself, and approached them. Like a little fan girl, I asked them to take a pic with me and my sister. And they were like, "Oh okay..."
The brown skinned one seemed to be soo excited as the film coming out from the camera, and kind of showing the pic slowly. 
We gave two frames for them. 

The collections were amazing, they were elegant yet chic, and so amazing. The designer didn't attend though. But the manager did. Some journalists actually approached her as the fashion show finished. Fashion people came to this show so proudly, with amazing clothes. some would just sit and watch, some people like me, would take pics of it. some would just record and see, some would just take pics of themselves narcissistically during the show.

Before heading home, We also took pictures on the photo space. Yep, I wore a tutu. Actually I wanted to wear this blue skirt I bought, but the skirt was temporary missing, until last night. I found it under seat of my car. I was like "whatthefuck" but, I was grateful cause I finally found it. 

Before the show starts, the organizers actually gave us a catalog of the noir collections, and they also gave us a 250.000 IDR shopping voucher in (X) S.M.L.

I didn't expect that at all. That's probably the biggest shopping voucher I've ever had hahaha. 

So Anyways, thanks a lot Plaza Indonesia, and (X) S.M.L for the lovely event. Thanks a lot to mum and dad who willingly drove us to the Plaza Indonesia. And thanks a lot to the models whom I and my sister talked to, it was so nice meeting you. And thanks for my sister herself, for patiently taking pics of me, and thanks for her polaroid camera, love you so much. hehe.

I am looking forward the next events. Thank you so much for the precious experience. Stay awesome everyone.
