On June 2 2012, it was finally Studiofrost Fashion Festival 2012!
I know right?
Studiofrost Fashion Festival means so much to me, Nurul, and the entire Studiofrost family. It is something that will always remind us of how we all started from scratch, from day 1, from nothing. And look where we are today. Alhamdullilah, I can never thank Allah and all my family members for making it possible for me, Nurul, and Studiofrost.
Prior to the event itself, Nurul and I spent so many days and nights preparing for it. We wanted it to be bigger than ever, and therefore, we needed more stocks than ever too. More stocks is equivalent to more stocktaking, more tagging and more work. Never once did we both complain or whine because we were so confident Studiofrost Fashion Festival 2012 would be a success. We knew our efforts would somehow pay off at the end of the day because we have worked so hard. We just had that feeling. So yes, while our two helpers attended to our kids in the other room, Nurul and I did our work in the studio room. Truthfully, I felt so guilty for being so busy preparing for the festival because Ikknew I was not spending enough time with my girls.
In fact, Sharleez even went to me to ask,
“Mummy, when will you havektime to play with us?”
I apologized to her and the twins of course, and told them them once the event was over, I would spend time with them and make up for everything. And yes, I did.
So on the day /f Studiofrost Fashion Festival 2012, everyone was up so early because we had to transport the goods from the warehouse and Nurul’s house to the venue itself, Aranda Country Club. Mind you, I am talking about almost 30 big red bags of stocks, clothes racks, mannequins, and more.
Even much more than what you see here.
So Daddy, Ian, Tatek, Nurul, and myself did all the loading and unloading. And then, once we were there, we delegated th% tasks. Thank god Nurul and I already decided the day before who would be doing what. I was in charge of the decor! I could not be happier, really. Hahahaha!
The event was supposed to start at 2 pm but I saw so many of our customers already waiting to enter as early as 1.30 pm! Wow! Hehehe.
So the moment it was time, the crowd just went crazy.
I barely had space to walk; I had to squeeze! Can you now imagine how Nurul managed to walk through the crowd despite her very big tummy? I suspect she used her tummy to push everyone aside. Hahah.
Look at the queue!
Just look at it!
We panicked actually when we saw the queue. I remember constantly telling our cashiers Ian and Ili to hurry. Hahaha I am not saying they were slow or anything because the truth is, they were super duper efficient. Sharleez helped out too! She was in charge of putting the purchased items nicely into the paperbag before giving them to the customers and saying,
“THANK YOU FOR SHOPPING WITH STUDIOFROST.”
How cute! <3 Thank you Sharleez for that!
(I would love to be the cashier for the next Studiofrost Fashion Festival.)
You know, the crowd remained that big and insane till about 7.30 pm before it finally started to grow sparse.
I finally had space to walk!
And only when it started to grow sparse did we finally have a proper break and meal!
Thank you, thank you everyone for making Studiofrost Fashion Festival 2012 a super HUGE success! We thought it would be a success, but we did not think it would be that huge, really.
got to must thank quite a number of people here because seriously,without them, we could not have possibly managed.
Mak & Daddy, as usual, for always being our pillars of support in anything and everything we do. Without them, we will be lost for directions because we constantly need their guidance and blessings. You have no idea how much Studiofrost depends on them both! Daddy, thank you also for taking charge of the photography because we hardly had time to even pose for the camera! So thank you so very much.
Ili, for making time for Studiofrost on that day. Hahaha! But hey, she sold quite a number of her preloved clothes for so cheap! As cheap as $2 okay for her H&M dresses and all! She was like, “Better to sell in quantity than to not sell nothing at all.” That’s Ili for you, the ever so generous one.
Tatek & Ian, for helping us out with everything. Tatek, you did really good with the stocks. All we needed to do was to tell you what the customers wanted, and you were ready with the stocks within seconds! Ian, you were a very excellent cashier! We did not have any shortage of cash, thanks to you.
Okay actually I helped you too, Tatek! So did Nurul and Estee! Hahaha!
Special thanks to Sabariyah (@icemuncher) for taking the day off from work and assisting us from the start till the end of the event. I really did not expect that! I am really fortunate to have a friend as sincere, kind and helpful as her. May Allah always bless this beautiful friend of mine for all that she has done for me, my family and Studiofrost!
My Nadyas and Shan Ehan for behaving their best and for being quite independent on that day!
Thank you to Aton and Estee too for helping us manage the kids. What would we do without helpers?
Sometimes Most of the time, I wonder why Shan’s hair is this brown.)
Thank you Nadyas especially for being so accommodating to your ever so busy mother, and for entertaining yourselves during the days when I was exceptionally busy with Studiofrost.
I hope you will figure it out one fine day that I am working so hard for your future, and nothing else. I would love to just shake my legs at home doing nothing, but doing nothing is something that I am not good at.
And of course,
BIGGEST THANK YOU TO ALL OUR CUSTOMERS NEW OR OLD, AND FRIENDS FROM TWITTER & FB FOR SUPPORTING STUDIOFROST FASHION FESTIVAL 2012!
