young&restless Autumn/Winter 2010 Ad Campaign & Lookbook
Model: Egzona Lulaj / Photographer: May Lin Le Goff / Creative Direction: Ashburn Eng / Hair & Makeup: Larry Yeo

After several highly successful collaborations between up-and-coming local designer Max Tan and Ashburn Eng, who is also the founder and creative director of Test Shoot Gallery, they have come together once again to collaborate on a new line for the max.tan label. Named young&restless, the line designed mainly by Ashburn is 'made for the free-spirited, confident and unpretentious woman, who is sophisticated yet, bold enough to daydream. She is forever young and down-right restless.'

My favourite pieces in this collection would have to be the draped robe/long cardi (2nd pic), the pants-skirt combo piece (reminds me alittle of Gareth Pugh's S/S2010 pants with back chiffon skirt combo piece) and the star motif dress (last pic).

Click here to read an exclusive interview with Ashburn about how the label came about and the inspirations behind the collection. To find out more about young&restless, check out their website or join their facebook page to get the latest updates on the label.  Also, if you haven't heard of Test Shoot Gallery before, definitely check it out for the creative edtorial spreads and ad campaigns styled by Ashburn Eng and his team. His past ad campaigns for the max.tan label which you can see here & here is rather amazing.

Hello Blog!

OMG! Has it been two weeks? How have you been? I've missed you much! 

Yup, it's been quite awhile since the last post I know. To put it simply, I've been faced with too many 'make it work!' moments lately which left me with precious little time where I chose sleep over blogging. The Spring 2011 fashion week has already kickstarted in New York and I have yet to view any collections completely on style.com. Loads of catching up to do, plus a massive list of unread posts on bloglovin', which I finally finished going through yesterday.

Amazingly, with all the madness, somehow I managed to squeeze time out or more like I had to have a time-out to attend my friend's Mimi hen parties (2 parties on different days).

SOTD - Retro Mania @ Street Stylista
Top from Isetan, F21 Jeans, Shoes (my fav!) from CP, m)phosis Fringed Clutch, Accessories & Specs from F21 & Far East. 

This was my outfit for the first party which had a retro theme. Ok I know it's not exactly that retro, but I literally had to throw an outfit together like a few hours before the party so I had to work with whatever I could find. Ended up wearing as many bright colours as possible and I also brought my nerdy specs along and some hair accessory to retro-fy the look whenever needed.

I also realised the colours of my accessories somehow matched the colours of the top. Then again, the top has like basically all the colours possible. Haha.

So anyway, we went to Helipad (my first time there) which I actually think is quite a boring club. I much prefer the chill out place on the rooftop above. The night was filled with lots of camwhoring and lol tasks the brides-to-be had to complete which was pretty fun to watch. Our second party the following weekend was just the bride and a small group of close friends. That ended up being a marathon ktv session (6+hrs!) instead of the pre-planned hen party. Lady Gaga, BEP, Wonder Girls, Super Junior, A*Mei, you name it, we sang it. It was mad fun.

Burger Cake @ Street Stylista

We also had a mini early birthday celebration for Mimi with this burger cake which is one of the funniest birthday cake I've seen. Love it! I've already requested for a Chanel bag cake for my birthday next year! Haha.

Now that I'm done with the short update, it's time to get back to the madness and also catch up with the new Spring collections. Hopefully it won't be a long absense again. Once again, thanks for visiting the blog and I'll be back in a few! Happy mid-week everyone!=)
