Finale

I would like to share my¬†last three¬†stylings¬†for the CoC finale in this post, which will mark the end of the CoC competition for 2012.¬† Our last three challenges were extremely demanding because on top of the themes we were given, every finalist was also given a “brand” to style along.¬† A brand in this case means an image that we have to keep in mind¬†in our styling for the given theme.¬† My brand was “bizzare”.

The styling we were asked to do¬†on Saturday’s runway challenge¬†together with an interview was “Futuristic Prints”.¬†¬†¬†For this theme, I¬†styled with outfits from SyS, Bare Rose and Gasqhe and accessories from Finesmith and SyS.¬† For my “bizzare” brand I had a doll head behind of me, hence when I turned it looked like a second head.¬† Check my style card below.

I have expected to see similar outfits from other finalists in this challenge because there aren’t many designers that are specialize in making cyber / futuristic clothing so I have to make the outfits like my own by customizing them.¬† I removed the lace layers from the SyS skirt because they looked too girlie for this theme and I tinted the lights on the skirt to¬†purple and green matching them with my Gasqhe outfit.¬† I did the same tinting¬†with my SyS earrings.¬† For my Bare¬†Rose outfit, I retextured the collar and cuffs too and now it is an unique piece that is¬†completely¬†own my me!

And in our finale, we had two styling challenges, Colour Blocking & Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2012.

I love colour blocking and I have done one in one of my posts earlier.  This time I used a big hair, elaborate glasses and a zipped lip to speak about bizzare.  I tied my accessories to the colour blocking theme too.  This is my most favourite style among all I did in the competition.

On the contrary, the Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2012’s styling was the hardest for me because the theme is very specific.¬† Diane’s resort 2012 design are rather simple and relaxed and using of many neutral colours such as white, black and grey.¬† Though¬†they are¬†beautiful, it’s definitely not easy to make¬†my styling unique, and bizzare.¬†¬† So I have decided to use simple clothing and colours and use accessories to play up my¬†bizzare¬†brand.¬† I also added a moving butterfly on my back just to emphazise¬†my brand and also my intention to add a surprise for the judges when I do my back pose.

I am grateful to have two sponsors in this styling.  Belle from Chop Zuey has again kindly sponsored me the Butterfly РHare Chrysalis head dress and Julia Merosi from Je Suis has sent me her latest exclusive release at the culture shock the Coquet MESH BAG.  A million thank you to Belle and Julia.  Thank you for your supports and believing in me.

AFTER THOUGHTS

So some of you might wonder how the finale went.  I came in 5th place as the 4th runner up among 16 finalists.  It is not the results I am most happy with and for those who were at the finale and/or have followed us in the entire competition saw how I have performed and competed.  I have worked hard and gave my 101%.  Not doubt, the rest of the finalists too and I respect every one of their participations and styles.  All the finalists were great, friendly and fun to be with.

As for myself, I am proud of what I have accomplished in this competition that I outdid myself in every challenge and in every aspect.  I have managed to remain consistent and focused throughout the whole 5 weeks and I shown the world what I am capable off.  Nothing speak louder and clearer than that despite what the results say.

Again, I want to thank those that have supported me throughout this entire time.  My mentor and dear friend Leah McCullough that has been there for me for every ups and downs.  Thank you so so much Leah, and Debbie Jasper that went into the competition with me and we have grew so much closer in this competition, thanks for keeping me on the course and keeping me calm Deb! And all my sponsors i.e. Chop Zuey, NYU and Je Suis.  Also Nice, Sessie, Ashia, Bea, thank you for your encouragements and the vote of confident.

Last but not least those who have made an effort and a point to drop me a note or IMs to tell me you liked my styling and more.

You are all winners in my heart.  I Love You all!!  <333

I am definitely ready for bigger challenges that will come my way, so watch this space!
