Designer FASH - Bespoke Longchamp

Christmas came early for FASH! The doorbell rang today and Santa dressed as a UPS delivery guy, came bearing gifts....3 to be exact. One each for us and one for a fashie who brought our attention to the most scrumptious bag!

You see you can order personalized Longchamp Le Pliage ( exclusively on the website. Love it! You can't go wrong with a Le Pliage. Almost everyone has one and everyone should! Now you can get one in the colour of your choice with personalized with embroidered and/or embossed letters. Marvelous! We could not resist placing an order for ourselves...

For all you Malaysians out there, let FASH place the order for you and sent it to your home starting from RM400 for a coin purse up to RM1300 for the biggest handbag (Size 4).

Any fashie would know that we are big fans of Primark that carry trendy looks which are a exact copy of Topshop and other high street stores at fraction of the price. Countless of times we purchased a top or a dress from one of those high street brands and then we find the same thing at Primark. Arrgghhh!

Now we know better....We check out Primark first then to the other shops. If it's not at Primark, only then we buy it.

Private Sample Sale for FASH & Friends at Jimmy Choo Couture

FASH was invited to bring a few friends for a Private Sample Sale at Jimmy Choo Couture in Connaught Street, London, just steps away from Tony Blair's Central London home. Of course we leapt at the chance...We just had one small request, that Dato' Jimmy Choo would drop by and say hello....and..and..sign our shoes, of course!

Being the man that he is, Dato' Jimmy Choo, not only was there, we were given VIP treatment by him, his wife and his staff. Also he took us on a private tour of his workshop underneath the boutique. But the real stars of the day was none other than the lovingly handmade Choos.......As comfy and UGGs and almost too beautiful to wear.

All of us are still buzzing about our purchases and can't wait to go back again....soon..real soon...

All the Choos laid out beautifully for FASH & Friends

We were invited to join OMEC in London, the Overseas Malaysian Executive Council a business focus group committed to helping Malaysians in the UK generate business opportunities. The fact that the OMEC Dinner and Dance was just around the corner was not the ONLY reason we joined...LOL! Being newbie entrepreneurs, we know our biggest challenge begins now. We have to get ourselves out there, meeting people, making contacts and showing people what we are all about.

The OMEC Dinner and Dance provided a brilliant opportunity for us to do so. We made fast friends and contacts with many like-minded Malaysian professional and entrepreneurs in the UK, who have done it for the past 1 - 30 years. Couple that with a chance to get dressed up, it was a fantastic night out!

FASH Affairs in November 2009

It's freezing cold, wet and windy here in London town....and every single day you feel like just curling into a ball and staying at home with the heaters on full blast.. But we don't have the luxury of doing that as we have soooooooo many Mum-duties and FASH-duties...and the best way to combat the winter blues is to leave the house and keep ourselves busy!

On the same evening after Jimmy Choo for H & M was launched, we went to support our friend who was selling Malaysian-style Tudungs/Scarves at an Islamic Fashion Show in Richmond, Surrey. It was such an eye-opener to see the differing styles of Islamic Fashion available in London custom made by Muslims from many different countries.

If it is your lucky day, walking about London, you might just bump into a famous celebrity. Even better, Selfridges held a Celebrity Charity Garage Sale recently! Fabulous! FASH had the opportunity to meet loads of celebrities at one go! Yes!

Albeit, most people below 25 could not recognize most of the celebrities selling their cast offs on that day...but trust us..these people were a big deal many moons ago. To top it all off, we bought quite a few of their pre-loved designer stuff at a steal....Admittedly, our intention was to sell it on FASH...we even managed to get autographed paper bags to go along with the goods. We do apologize, we decided to keep it...for now..Maybe one day we'll change our minds.
