Apricots & Cream - Haagen Daz Fashion Show?

A completely new approach to launching a new ice cream flavour :).........

Key learning: I know now that I will never be able to be a fashion photographer because out of about 50 shots, more than half were completely out of focus. Haha...

Anyway, it's really nice when people try a refreshing different approach when it comes to new products, in this case, the pairing of fashion with ice cream. :)
Summer Swah-ray? Or something liddat (Pardon my England, well... It's actually a French word anyway).....

Haagen Daz, in conjunction with its 15th anniversary in Malaysia, invited 5 young Asian designers to come up with a collection based around their new flavour: Apricots & Cream. This culminated in a fashion show in Bangsar Village to showcase their creations, whilst giving us the chance to sample their new ice cream flavour.

The venue - a makeshift garden in the middle of Bangsar Village 2:
A walk in the park.....

Nice Waiter: "Ice cream for you. miss?"
J: "Yes please, thank you! :)"...
(There were waiters moving around serving the main star of the evening - the new Apricots & Cream ice cream):
Tray full of goodies.....

Not bad - the new flavour was pretty refreshing - fruity and light yet creamy (Given a choice, I still prefer the Belgian Chocolate though, but I am a chocoholic after all so I'm completely biased *lol*...):
Pre-nom.....

Daphe Iking, our gorgeous MC for the night:
What a body *jelez*... And she's a mum too!.....

The fashion show begins:
Leggy blonde in a cute cream coloured dress.....

Lots of pretty, playful dresses:
.....

There's something large growing out of the side of her head? Or maybe I just don't understand fashion... :)...:
Most of the dresses were not exactly ready to wear.....

Wah, if her legs get any longer I think she'll be able to touch the ceiling
(NO, I'm not jealous :P):
Height, either you have it or you don't.....

All the models, lined up at the end of the show....
(Which dress do you like best?):
As pretty as the dresses looked on the models, I suspect most would make the average height+weight girl look like a poufy parasol.....

YAY! I won some vouchers during the quiz session!
(Guess where I'll be a lot, pigging out on delicious ice cream? :D :D)
Look! I'm holding 20 hours of gym time in my hand!.....

Anyway, before I sign off:
A big thanks to Regina @ Pat-Lin for inviting me for yet another delicious Haagen Daz event. :) Btw: You looked ravishing in your green dress lah - why were you hiding behind your program booklet?? :P


Hugs,
J

So, it's: A refreshing new flavour added into a range of yummy ice cream :) BUT it's not cheap, is it?.....
