The 55th floor of Ion will be buzzing on 1st October with the much-anticipated Autumn Fashion Lunch hosted by some of Singapore's top independent boutiques. Luke Mangan's SALT restaurant is the glamorous venue for the upcoming event to which tickets sold out on the first day.

The well-heeled guests will be the first to see the new collections of jewellery brand Stones that Rock and clothing label White Ginger. Holleigh Mason is also unveiling her first collection for Ms. Illusion, a new addition to the local shopping scene. Ms. Illusion hopes to deliver what the clothing industry in Singapore has been missing - clothing for the stylish, curvy fashionista.

During the fashion show models will showcase handmade special occasion headwear by Kathryn Campbell and hot-off-the-press handbags by Desti Saint.

Representing Singapore's cosmopolitan art scene will be Anna Layard from Art Equity. Guests can learn of their advisory and innovative investment solutions for collectors and investors of art.

The event has also attracted the participation of top local photographer Kate Griffiths of littleones Photography and celebrity hair & makeup artist Andrea Claire who will be doing makeup on the models. Well known Singaporean hairstylist Jeric See and his team will unleash their hairstyling creativity on the eight models strutting their stuff in the show. 

A stylish afternoon of fashion, champagne and lunch.

Herringbone braid chignon

By Andrea Claire · December 3, 2012 · 0 Comments ·

When I was in high school there was a girl who had her hair perfectly coiffed and frozen in place - from the front - the back was flat as a board - sure it was the 80s but that was no excuse. Even before I got into hair and makeup I noticed these things and wanted to help.

At one point in time - The back of your head looks RIDICULOUS! - meant it truly looked ridiculous - case and point in the aforementioned story.

Now 'The back of your head looks RIDICULOUS!' - means your hair looks amazing!

Here is one 'fab from the back' chignon:

  1. Blow out your hair with a round brush
  2. Secure into a simple side ponytail - hide the elastic with the hair
  3. Fishtail the ponytail
  4. Wrap and pin the tail flat against your head - each time you can play with the chignon shape.

Not sure how to herringbone a.k.a fishtail? I show you here on Yahoo! Glam Up!

There are tips to ease into a red lip.

Different finishes will have a different impact on your look.

This trick is not very attractive but neither is getting lipstick all over your teeth. [And don't fix your lipstick like this while perched on a barstool otherwise you just may send the wrong message...]
