This was my second time being able to attend and take photos of Gala Dinner & Fashion Show of the 6th World Eco-Fiber and Textire (W.E.F.T.) Forum 2010. Two years ago it was held at the Civic Center, this year it was held at the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK).
It was a last minute invite, but luckily I got in! Thanks Geri, Thanks Lucy.
At the start of the dinner, there was quick slideshow in honor of the late Y.A. Bhg Datuk Amar Puan Sri Laila Taib, who was the patron of Society Atelier Sarawak.
Then there was a quick slideshow focusing on the flood in Pakistan and how it affects the people there especially those who makes their livelihood from handicraft. And so a donation was made by Society Atelier Sarawak to the World Crafts Council Asia Pacific Region (WCCAPR) of RM 10,000.00.
Then there was the fashion show by 21 designers from all over the world. There are just too many pictures and I already have posted them in my facebook account. I will highlight some of those which are my favorite of the night.
After sticking about trying not to block the VIP's I headed to the side of the runways. For a different angle.
Not only did I swap positions, I also swap between zoomed lens to wider angled lens.
The event was uneventful, which was a good thing, everything seemed to go as plan. The only issue was during the diinner the air condition was not working properly, everyone was sweating before the fashion show started. =) Good food, beautiful clothing on beautiful people. What a night! I have made it to 5th and 6th, hopefully more to come !
