Maizen Goes Spring Fever

It was a real girls' day out as Maizen threw it's spring fever 2008 party to its loyal clients and friends.

Held at the Maizen Maison Parkson Pavilion on Sunday, the intimate girlish afternoon was an exquisite affair to cherish by loyal Maizenistas and was carefully planned by the Maizen girls - Shirieene Hajamaideen, Rekha Sen, Nilam Lakmichand, Shereen Jaafar, Milla Chee and the staffs.

Green, the color of freshness and vivacity, dominates the event's color scheme and syncs perfectly with the store's interior focal point - the beautiful handpainted Japanese Garden mural and zesty hues. Even the Maizen girls themselves looked drop dead gorgeous in printed green dresses and ensembles. The girls even sported CC Skye bracelets and necklaces on their beautiful wrists and necks to complement their looks.

While waiting for the spring/summer 2008 ready-to-wear fashion show to begin, guests mingled among themselves and marveled at the beautiful must-have pieces of the season by Maizen's cult staples - T-Bags, Julie Haus, Project E, William Rast, and also the Project Runway finalist Rami Kashou.

Taking the front rows were KL 'It' girls - Ruthlene Abu Sahid, Shareen Ramli and sister Noreen, former Miss Malaysia/World 2007 Deborah Priya Henry, as well as sensational jazz crooner Izlynn Ramli. Later, moments before the fashion show startes, guests were treated to sumptuous cupcakes and other sinful confectionaries that anyone with big sweet tooth can't resist.

Since green is the theme of the event, guests were
also treated to a special thirst-quenching mint flavored drink in bright emerald color. At 4.08 p.m., just after every one got seated, Shirieene and Milla opened the show with a brief introduction on the brands they were about to preview, followed by the much-anticipated show itself minutes later. I managed to get myself a seat behind the front row and enjoyed the terrific eye candies - Maizen's spring/summer 2008 must-have pieces.

Judging from the show itself, the new arrivals wasn't bad at all. In fact, among all the pieces showcased at the Spring Fever show, the spring/summer pieces from Los Angeles-based fashion brand T-Bags caught the most of my attention.

The pyschedellic semi-tribal prints and the burst of explosive colors that swathed the magnificent dresses and ensembles were truly enticing and ideally fits the season's trend.

Classic pleat detailing were also visible on some of the showcased pieces. Another eye-catching piece that every woman should own is a navy blue tube dress with pleat detailing on the neckline, which can be worn for both day and night occassion.

Just after the show ended with models making their last catwalk rounds in beautiful dresses, Maizenistsas were treated to another surprise - a lucky draw. Earlier, each guest was asked to write her or his name on a piece of paper and cast it into a glass fishbowl. Hanging on their seats with high anticipation, three lucky Maizenistas succesfully walked home with three mystery gifts from Maizen and I don't know what's inside them because I didn't win any.

Once the lucky draw ended, Maizenistas immediately rushed towards the shelves and grab as many must have pieces as they could!

Though we did not win that three highly-coveted mysterious prizes, Maizenistas did not return home empty-handed. Instead, the good Maizen girls presented us with goody bags loaded with good and 'kinky' stuff :D ...

Therefore, I would like to thank the lovely Maizen girls - Shirieene Hajamaideen, Rekha Sen, Milla Chee, Shereen Jaafar, Nilam Lakmichand and their staffs for throwing such a wonderful event and to Noreen Ramli from The Pink Sage for those lovely chicken wrap in deep-fried wantan skin, the emerald juice, and yes, those nice and sugary cupcakes.

Spring/summer 2008 collections are now available at Maizen Maison Jalan Maarof, Bangsar and Parkson Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur.
