My cousin and her friend just started their online shawl business earlier this year – Marshmallowscarf. They have been so generous giving me some of their glitter shawls for me to wear and keep (thanks guys).
Then one day, my cousin asked me if I would like to be their model for their current and upcoming shawl collection.
Whoaa. Me, a model? She couldn’t be serious! I mean, of all the ladies, si tembam ni jugak yang dia nak jadikan model. =_=’
I wasn’t sure whether to accept it or not (so conscious about my tembamness), but after giving it some thoughts, I finally agreed. Bila lagi nak merasa jadi model! Wahahah.
The day of the photo shoot came… and I had fun! Makeup, being styled (I learned a couple of new tudung styles), gelak-gelak, photo-shooting. Not a typical Sunday for me.
Here’s a few behind-the-scene photos…
We tried a few poses – hands on the side, hands on the waist, hands holding the ends of the shawl, badan senget, kepala senget. None worked. I just don’t know how to pose! So keras I tell you.
So in the end, we just settled with this pose. I call this the Negaraku pose.
Anyways, the photos are ready, and Marshmallowscarf will be releasing their Ammara collection tonight at 9pm on their Facebook page. The collection features opal finished chiffon shawls in various colors and prints. Here’s a little sneak preview!
They’re also going to release their glitter and ombre satin shawls some time next week so be sure to stay tuned if you want to get your hands on them ok!
Marshmallowscarf is in the midst of coming up with their new collection next month. I’m pretty excited about it because it’s my current fave shawl. Can you guess? 😛
