Got a Facebook message from Lionel a couple of months back to do the nails on a fashion show that reinvents pernanakan fashion. Check out details of the show here.
When I posted a status updated on Facebook about designing nails for this show, comments generated were all food related “ondeh ondeh nails, green with brown coconut flakes”, “multi-coloured ones like the 9-layer kueh” and “Kueh lapis nails”.
True blue Singaporeans always have food on their minds 🙂
My design is inspired by the plates Pernankans use so it’s kinda related to food. Lionel and I went through the catalogue for the show that featured a lot of black/white pieces. So we decided that colour blocking was the way to go to add a splash of colour on the runway.
Tsk, the lighting made the design very blah. I’ve done the same design here some moons back.
This gold and matte design suits the outfit to a T.
Will try to take pictures of the model wearing both the outfit and the nail design and post.
Okies, the show would be on 19 November 2011, 5pm, at the Pernankan Museum in Singapore.
