SCHMILEY MO at KLFW 2016: It's A Wrap!

 photo aaa_zpsnyfvhzte.jpg

Dreams do come true, even when they are so random and wild. I've always thought about having a clothing line but never thought it was ever going to come true, moreover given the opportunity to make its debut in such a grand event abroad. And it did. Schmiley Mo is my tribute to girls out there who believe that fashion should be fun and easy but at the same time modest. Yes, the word "Mo" is actually derived from the word "modesty" because I believe in less-skin is more.

Anyway, my first experience backstage was pretty frightening hehe. I even asked the stage choreographer, "can I hug you?", to which she allowed me to hehehehehhe. But I am happyyyyy because I learned so much! My models were also very kind, so that was helpful. And hey, Tuti from Asia's Next Top Model walked for Schmiley Mo too! OMG! #fangirling

Press Preview for SCHMILEY MO

The day that got me really jittery in the morning was the press-preview day. Press preview is basically an early preview for the media where they get to see the clothes before everyone else and interview the designer directly. It got me so anxious that I spent around 20 minutes just taking pics of my balloons to calm myself down (balloons make me happy) and listened to Fathia Izzati's ukulele covers (her voice is soothing, FYI) while getting ready in my hotel room.

But it was all good! I love how diverse the questions were and some of them were really 'sharp', basically the type of questions that I rarely receive when interviewed by the media in Indonesia. But honestly, I like sharp and difficult questions. Hoping to read positive reviews by them! :)

Please Welcome: SCHMILEY MO!

I've been thinking about this for the longest time and started to cook the idea starting last year, and finally, finally, finally, finally, next week I'll be launching my new clothing line next week in Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week 2016. OMG!!!

Yes, yes, the brand is called Schmiley Mo, which I'll be revealing soon what the two words actually mean heheh. In the mean time, please show your love and support by following its Instagram account @schmileymo.

God is kind if you work hard and try hard.

So I guess I have 3 babies now; Up, #88LoveLife, and Schmiley Mo. Bismillah! :)
