Jstar Contest & Tokyo Fashion Night

Earlier this week, I had the chance to attend not one, but two! fashion-related events in one day! First off was the JStar contest, JRunway's brand ambassador contest. The chosen finalists will get 1-year modelling appointment to work with JRunway, and 1 grand winner will win a trip to Japan for modelling experience and fashion tour.

JStar Finalists!

The judging was held in the back area of JRunway, with a few benches to accommodate media. The judges sat at one end. It was like viewing the behind-the-scenes with all the cameramen and equipment around :P

The 20 contestants had to style themselves, answer a few questions and have a quick shooting session with a professional photographer. The judges would give comments and ask questions from time to time, livening up the atmosphere. Judges were QiuQiu, Mr Ken Soda, Mr Kenji Chigira and Natsuko. Natsuko, from S Cawaii, will be debuting her own brand, Riche je U in Singapore.
