[Media Invite] G2000 "The Work Chic" Event @ Ion Orchard

G2000 "The Work Chic" Event / Celebrating 25th anniversary
Venue: 2 Orchard Turn, Level #B4 Event Hall @ Ion Orchard
Date: 31 October 2015 (Saturday)
Time: 3.00pm to 5.00pm

I was honoured to be invited to the above event, held at Ion Orchard, right outside the G2000's store. Upon registration, we were affixed with a black "Style" sticker and handed a bottle of fresh cold-pressed orange juice.

Then we proceeded in to mingle with the rest of the guests and see what were on display. The GIF Photobooth manned by Toothprint was amazing. We were asked to strike a series of different poses, thereafter each received a polaroid printout photo. The video captured all our poses, and was emailed to us instanteously.

Next, this special machine where we stood in front of it and "get dressed" virtually. No, I wasn't holding or wearing that black-and-red outfit as shown in the photo; I was merely standing in front of it. Great fun and rather good use, only that the fit might be an issue.

An array of clothes were on display, so we had a sneak peek of the good stuff in the shop itself.

Then the fashion showcase hosted by Furqan Saini began, in which he talked about styling tips and current season's trends. Some members in the audience were asked to go upstage and styled with the various coats / jackets to enhance their outfits.

Social media influencers Maybelline Sim and James Awyong made a guest appearance to share about their styles as well; Maybelline on "colour blocking".

Contestants (3 couples) of the #G2StyleFiles contest co-organized by Style: and Style: MEN paraded the makeshift runway and then the winning couple was announced. The couple whose style I preferred the most won, of course....

So, it was time for some photo-taking with familiar faces and shopping at the G2000 store. This collection, consisting of chic workwear and some winter clothes, was rather awesome. Spotted clothes of different fabrics and styles from the conventional G2000 apparel.

Finally, we redeemd the generous goodie bag containing copies of Style  and Style Men magazines, invitation for free digital subscriptions of the magazines, makeover lessons by Makeup Store, red velvet cupcakes, Aveda hair treatment from Jeric, G2000 voucher and a bottle of Magners' Irish Cider.

Thank you G2000 for the lovely event, and thank you Mediacorp for the invite!
