One day when I was having my dinner at home (have been sick a lot lately) I received a surprising call from an unknown number; a cheery familiar voice greeted me with salam and introduced herself as Diana Amir. Ooh wow, why would the famous TV personality call me, I ask myself. She explained herself and asks me if I would like to join her on a small venture. I honestly am not sure how I agreed to it eventhough I was not feeling well and can't be sure if I will be well on the particular dates. But anyways who can say no to Diana Amir's cheery happy voice, and that's that. I will be part of Diana Amir x Emel by Melinda Looi Fashion Show..... as one of the *cough* scarf *cough* models *cough*.......... I just hope I don't faint really!
Price range RM59 - RM89
So what is going to be shown really at the fashion show you ask? Ahah! Diana Amir herself has guest designed a collection of scarves exclusively for Malaysia's famous fashion designer Melinda Looi's limited edition, accessibly priced annual Raya collection. What's even more interesting is that a portion of the sales will be donated to charity, Diana has nominated Keluarga Besar Norlina Alawi Berhad (KBNAB, formerly known as Pusat Perlindungan PERNIM Berhad) as her charity of choice. Persatuan Kebajikan Anak Pesakit HIV/AIDS Nurul Iman Malaysia (PERNIM) is dedicated towards helping abandoned or orphaned
children living with HIV/AIDS. PERNIM's founder, Norlina Alawi, has since then adopted more children to live under her roof as one big family, most of whom are HIV/AIDs free, and so Keluarga Besar Norlina Alawi was born. What a noble cause isn't it? ♥
EMEL BY MELINDA LOOI RAYA 2013 – RAYA FOR “HER”
Titled ‘Raya for HER’, the ‘emel by Melinda Looi’ Raya 2013 collection was created for women, by a woman (Melinda) who is no stranger to the art of balancing the hectic schedule of a demanding career with the tremendous effort of raising her children, and spending enough quality time with close friends and loved
Some of my favorites from Emel by Melinda Looi ♥
“I designed ‘Raya for HER’” for the modern lady who juggles her family with work; moving seamlessly from one role to another. There is something for every occasion – from cheerful prints for celebrations with the family to more elegant looks for Raya parties in the city,” explained Melinda of her inspiration for the brand’s first collection. ‘Raya for HER celebrates the many roles that a modern woman fulfils – as an income-earner, mother, wife.
Anyways, Melinda & Diana has managed to rope in celebrities & bloggers to showcase the tudung collection. Among them are: Natasha Hudson, Siti Nordiana, Salima Habibi, Anis Al Idrus, Ameera Zaini, Lynda Roslan and fellow bloggers Shea Rasol and Raja Nadia Sabrina. Exciting isn't it?
