ClosetStyles Bazaar 2016

16 July 2016 - I missed out their ClosetStyles bazaar last year, and this year, I was curious to have a look what's Closet Styles was about. To those who are new to ClosetStyles, here are their definition on About Us: "ClosetStyles is a mobile marketplace helping women across Malaysia and Singapore to clear their closets and turn them into cash. Sell your preloved fashion which is just sitting in your closet now!"

Basically, the founder, Fong Kam Ling, started ClosetStyles with a very smart move. Instead of the general second-hand marketplace app, she focuses on only the social media influencers and celebrities in Singapore and Malaysia, building up the traffic among the fans who wish to get to buy their idol's clothes, shoes, or any women fashion goodies. If you are not a crazy fan over online social media influencers or celebrities, perhaps you enjoy to shop branded preloved fashion goods with a more affordable price obtained. Now, I am pretty sure most influencers and celebrities will not post fake products to sell online, as this will affect their reputation as well.

Well, event always make people alive and more interaction, besides on the typical online startups/ platform. Finally, instead of admiring the social media influencers online or via ClosetStyles app, finally you get to meet them in person, as you got to meet & greet your favourite celebs and bloggers in the bazaar, Tropicana City Mall, 16-17 July 2016, 12-6pm.

Upon arrival, there is a casual fashion/beauty workshops and talks by the social media influencers.

I am one of the followers of Jennifer Foh via Instagram, and got to know that she was famous due to she was Miss Chinese Cosmos International 2011 1st runner-up. She is more active in her instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jenniferfoh/ with 64k followers at the moment.

This photo shows how 'neat' and tidy each booth or section where the celebs or influences display their items. Now, bear in mind, not all the social media influencers and celebrities appear on that day, although they do display their fashion and beauty items in the bazaar.

Among of all booths, Duogigs impressed me the most. The way the twins coordinate their stuff, simple yet neat. Easy to notice and you will never miss out their items from your sight.

Duo Gigs is a fashion website run by real twins Cherrie Mun and Evangeline Yan since 2011. The Duo wears many hats as digital influencers, models, stylists, fashion buyers and joint editors of DuoGigs.com - a blog where they indulge their passion for fashion, beauty, travel, lifestyle and creative inspirations. Well, not to mentioned they have high profile with high fashion brands, such as: Coach, DKNY, Michael Kors, Moschino and many more.

Super duper love their fashion website, just like their styles, clean and navigation-friendly: http://www.duogigs.com/

Well, you can't get unnoticed when you see the cheerful Arisa Chow with her colorful hair - http://www.arisachow.com/

Petite as she is, she was promoting hair, beauty products, as well as selling her preloved clothes. Some of her costumes are very lovely too....well, just that I am so unfit for all her clothes!

Met Fiqa Liyana Chong, the founder of http://www.fiqs.co/. I like her way to describe the shoes fundamental - Comfy Foldable Leather Footwear. Straight to the point it was like, meant for travellers, it saves lots of space since the pair of footwear is foldable, made of genuine leather.

Well, to cut the queue for you to search on fiqs.co, perhaps this visual will just remind you that if you need fiqs footwear:

Fiqa Liyana also created another funky platform, Nini was all smiling promoting the funky box. Now, how does funky box work? Subscribe to their funky box on monthly subscription fees, and you will receive Funky! goodies every month via the FUNKY!BOX. What funky items will you get basically? Ranging from arts and crafts, DIY kits, décor, handmade items, beauty products, tit bits and things that spark creativity. So if you are a local creator for gifts, arts, and so forth, do drop by their website: http://www.thefunkyfactory.com/

So basically, the bazaar wasn't too hype or happening as it seems, or probably most fans who showed up for the celebs or influencers are those youngsters. 90% of the clothes are XS, S and M size, which obviously I am unfit in the size nor the target age, LOL.

What interests was the coordinator/ admin of the Plus Size Exchange, where ClosetStyles a collaboration with Plus Size Exchanged (Malaysia), where you can trade in, sell your clothes, and of course you may purchase really nice plus-sized clothes in the bazaar. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1544285042455288/

Well, and the plus-sized clothes are very beautiful, as well as the person in charge of the booth (sorry, couldn't recall her name, update me if you are the one, or you know who is the one in very sexy bear-back ocean blue flora dress) I was like: "Can I buy the dress you are wearing now?"


On the other hand, wonder how does ClosetStyles earn money from the platform...traffic?
Anyway, Do drop by and start shopp at ClosetStyles website and app:
