Catwalk Debut – Noel Caleb Jonah Fashion Show 2013

This weekend, I’ll be walking Noel Caleb’s fashion runway that will be held at The Sail at Marina Bay! 😀

Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of a fashion show?

Well, before I ‘strut my stuff’ on the runway, I thought I could show you the preparation that goes into a runway show as well as a sneak preview of the Noel Caleb Jonah Collection.

Click for your Jonah treat!

The ladies of the runway show.

Since most of us are catwalk newbies, Noel Caleb invited veteran model Jessica Ee to help us polish our walk.

The session commenced with a mini catwalk show where we had to show Jessica our walks.

Pretty Sulastri strutting her stuff.

I’ve never done this before so it was a sink or swim situation for me. I look pretty lost here. Haha!

Jessica was very funny throughout the rehearsal and often made remarks like ‘I’m gonna scrutinize and criticize your walks like I’m Noami Campbell because being nice does not pay off!’

Jessica’s antics and the cheery banter with the girls certainly made the catwalk rehearsals a much relaxed and happier experience.

My main takeaway from the session was to walk and pose with confidence. According to Jessica, I have the tendency to abruptly break my walk and pose. So she advised that I should always know when I’m going to stop and prepare to pose. Also twisting my torso slightly and throwing my shoulders forward during the pose will accentuate the narrowness of my waist and make me look more confident.

Now who says modeling is easy???

I wore a pair of turquoise heels that day which Jessica strongly disapproved of. She advised that we wear only nude or black 5-inch stiletto heels during the show because they go very well with outfits of any color.

Thanks Noel Caleb and Jessica for giving me a good reason to go shopping. 😛

Immediately after the session, I broke the bank and bought a few shoes and of course, also this pair of gorgeous suede nude heels from Aldo for the fashion show.

After all that striding on our imaginary runway, we had our first dress fitting with the pretty clothes of the Jonah Collection.

Then it’s camwhore time!

Did I mention that Jessica is also one of the models of the Noel Caleb Jonah Fashion Show?

Fiery hot!
