Project Runway is set to premier on March 25, 2012 and I was happy to have had the chance to attended the launch in Genting club Resorts World. I've seen excerpts from the 1st episode and I can't wait to see what happens next. It's gonna be sad to see someone go home too early. But from what I've heard, I think there's no guarantee that only one person gets eliminated.
What I wore that night. (Sorry no OTD that night--there's too much food on the table and wine was overflowing and it kept me busy. lol!)
Dress: Be Like a Star
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell
Gold bangles: Anagon
Here's a sneak peak of their creation for their first challenge.

I was happy to see my FIP friends there too. Mikee, Oz Go and Sir. Shanon Pamaong.
Took photos of the designers I am rooting for. FIP guys represent! =)
Oz is too cute!
Oh and I took a photo of Enzo, one of the designers, just because I love his necklace. He's really nice.
It was a great event. Very successful and well attended I can say. There's so much to look forward to this season. I can't wait to see Tweety host the show. During the event, she admitted how moody and mean she can be at times. I can't imagine! I definitely have to see that. Let me end this post by Tweety and Rajo's words. Ciao loves!
