The Ong Oaj Pairam show!- LFW part 2!

Following on from the excitement of Cassandra Verity Green and my indulge of sushi, (I have been on a diet for the past two weeks so haven't been able to eat anything remotely nice!), we headed back to Freemasons' hall to get ready and prepared for the Ong Oaj Pairam show. We arrived like 2 hours early so after speaking to the guards on the door and explaining who we were and how desperate we were to use a plug to charge our phones they allowed us access into the media lounge. The media lounge was relatively empty. There was a long table that had laptops and plug sockets available for people to use to write up posts, and there was a corner for somewhere to have your nails done and makeup touched up. Overall it was a cute little area although very very empty! I guess everybody else was busy doing other things.
The previous show over ran slightly so we waited a little longer than expected. But it was good never the less. When we saw people begin to arrive we made our way down to the door. My tickets had got lost in the post so I had to speak to the lady briefly and she allowed me access before others arrived to take my seat. I had a really good view in the second row which was something I wasn't expecting. For this show they had given us tote bags which had a t-shirt inside. This was super cool and I somehow managed to leave with 3! They are really durable and look lovely as well!




The Ong Oaj Pairam show was full of shades of pinks, greens blues all of which were presented in pastel forms. The silhouettes created from his designs were stunning and there wasn't a item of clothing that he presented that I didn't think was nice. Which for a fashion show is very unusual as there is usually something that you don't love and would never wear. His whole collection was based around his fragmented memories of growing up alongside his families noodle factory. The prints combined with the idea of workwear can be clearly seen throughout this collection. And I was absolutely in love with the intricate floral pattern and oriental techniques used on some of his designs.  His collection was a combination of boiler suits, jackets, swimwear and pretty evening dresses. The finale dress was absolutely stunning and consisted of different coloured layers. The model wore it lovely as well! 

I have edited a couple of my favourite looks from his collection. You need to really check it out online and see some of the images for yourself! You can see it HERE

My day then continued with me jumping in a taxi and rushing to Somerset house to see the Christopher Raeburn show. Check back tomorrow to see my report on that! 

Thanks for reading!
