YES Bazaar in London, A FASH Production


We are so excited to share with all the fashies, the pictures of our first ever event, the YES Bazaar, co-organized with OMEC YES here in London.

It took place 9 days ago in the Stowe Centre, nearby to Bayswater in Central London. There was 20 booths taken up by mostly Malaysian Entrepreneur and Aspiring Entrepreneurs based in the UK.

3 booths, Asia Essentials Skincare (, SEPATU Shoes ( and Honey Apple 3 Drink took the opportunity to do a soft launch at the YES Bazaar itself. 3 Malaysian Ladies, who siezed the day and made us all proud!

The items sold at the YES Bazaar included lovely Malaysian Food, Teh Tarik (a rare commodity in UK, LOL!), Malaysian Fashion, Pre Loved Items, Cakes, Cupcakes, Skincare, Malaysian Chocolates, Original Prints, Toys and Greeting Cards. The owners of the stalls were a combination of established companies, Blogshops (including FASH), students and stay-at-home mothers who decided to become an entrepreneur for the day. Even Tourism Malaysia was there with an Information Booth on Malaysia with a Henna Tattoo artist offering her service, undoubtedly a crowd puller. Oh yes, the unforgettable part of the YES Bazaar had to be the Karaoke booth sponsored by Delima Restaurant. We even organized a Karaoke competition with prizes from Tukdin Restaurant. Alot of talented wannabe singers at the YES Bazaar that day!

When we first agreed to organize on behalf of OMEC YES, we (and the people around us) never knew how big it would be. All we knew was to do what FASH does best, put our heart and soul into everything we do. As time wore on, the anticipation was electric! More and more people wanted to participate or volunteer their services.

We invited the Acting Malaysian High Commissioner to officiate the YES Bazaar. He and his wife took the time to go to every booth, try the products, have a chat with them and sample the lovely food that was sold that day.

What a day!! We still talk about it everyday since then and we are full of motivation to organize the next event.
