Makeup workshop..

So I attained the workshop yesterday and it was held really early in the morning (not a morning person that I am) but it felt good actually. I mean there're so many things to do and waking up early means longer hours.

I had a hidden agenda attending the makeup workshop though. Like many of you guys, I learn my techniques and how-to on Youtube. But as long as I'm running my own fashion e-mag, I'm gonna need more people on board. Back then I had 0 contact in the fashion industry. But through several social networking or getting together with people of mutual interest, you are actually placing your foot in the right direction.

When the workshop finished, it was getting really cloudy and about to rain (not cool especially during seasonal flu 2010). Maybe I should be getting vaccinated just in case. 'Nyway, back to the shopping spree. Didn't really buy any clothes but I've got a really good book written about fashion industry. It guides you through the whole process; you'll understand the reasoning behind the marginal cost, how samples are delivered, why runway. It's called 'The Fashion Designer's Survival Guide".

The museum is not far from where I was at. Asides from showcase, the place also allows artists to bring talent to those who would love to have their portraits hand-drawn into a canvas of A3 size.

This one really gets me: some would call an artist choice of muse. I only remembered partial of its description though. The film run through a projector behind my back in a dark square room. It had black curtain covered everything so it was really pitch dark so all you could see was a big projected screen in front. Capture outside describes something like this: When God created the World He had a magical bag. African had been blessed with natural resources and physical strength. But upon the arrival of western colonialism, African was left with slavery, poverty and eternal oblivion.

Bloggers, I hope you think about fashion philanthropy. Not now but when you have excess. Maybe someone out there is in desperate need of help.
