Stumbled upon a sub-site of telegraph.co.uk displaying finalists of the Nikon Travel Photography Competition. The overall photo quality is exceptional. Telegraph selected some of the best works from almost 3,000 entries and categorised them into 5 categories, namely landscapes, animals, urban living, the natural world and people. It further narrowed 10 best pieces. (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/3086912/Nikon-travel-photography-competition-The-10-finalists.html)

The one photo that really captured one’s attention and imagination is the photo shown here, taken by Haidar Alwan-Walker of Harrogate, titled Cuban Woman. The wittiness of the subject, the colours and composition really put a smile on one’s face.

” There’s next-to-nothing, there’s almost-nothing, then there’s less-than-nothing,” was how Jacobs described his almost non-existent skirts. The models were adorned with sequins, beads, brooches, feathers, jewelled chokers, pendants and cuffs, and super-embellished shoes.

Facchinetti’s Collection was inspired by 1920’s jewels and designed delicately. The jewels are worn at the throat, wrist, waist and slippers. They are also seen in jewel- print chiffons in soft citrus shades.

Chloé’s collection oozes British Cool with sun-dresses, jumpsuits, and rolled-up shorts all screaming the essence of Brits.

Galliano presented an African inspired collection where the models strutted on a six-inch, metal “fertility goddess” heels as well as a high plaited head-dresses. Galliano was inspired by “my memories of many trips, all over Africa”

Balmain’s Collection is inspired by punk, Madonna and Ancient Egyptians. The show kicked off with Madonna’s music and models parading in short, emerald, black and shocking pink micro-minis. Egyptian mummies come to mind when you see the way the models carry the skin-tight dresses and they are also adorned with punk studs, crystals, and jewels.

Antonio Marras brought ‘Alice in Wonderland’ to life, at the Paris prêt-à-porter season. There are crystals and pearls, shells and beads adorned with smock-dresses and empire-line dresses. Sequins on dresses and jewel-embroidered knits makes the collection complete.

John Galliano’s “old English” style, inspired, in part by the 18th century political satirist, James Gillray. A burst of colours can be seen on stage when the models walked out in lime and pink jackets worn with bright and floral skirts, aswell as colourful pleats and ruffles.

Checked out Brussels @ Jaya One just before the Raya break.  It was fairly full.  The crowd, mainly there for a few beers after work were mainly 25+.  It was a good mix of men and women.

We all ordered the highly recommended Hoegaarden.  There aren’t many places offering Hoegaarden in KL, but its definitely my preferred beer.  Its light, easy to drink and refreshing, definitely goes well with light snacks.

Hi girls (and boys), Welcome to chichick. We realised that it’s pretty hard to get those information that a girl needs all in one blog. The personal blogs talk all about themselves, the fashion blogs talk all about fashion, the tech blogs talk all about gadgets. So we thought, why not a blog that talks about everything a girl needs or would want to know?

So ta-da… chichick is here to accomplish all that and so much more. We will update the blog with news on fashion from all around the world, latest on beauty, health, arts, food, travel, movies, books, well just about everytrhing LOL.

Do drop ur comments whether to compliment us, or to constructively criticise us. We welcome any feedbacks that you have. You can also email us at chichick@ymail.com.
