We were lucky to be able to attend the Aamir Naveed Hair School Launch on Sunday 14th September. For those of you who don't know who Aamir Naveed is, here's a short bio. He's a 21 (or 22..) year old who has made a huge name for himself within the asian fashion industry. He is not trained in hair. It all comes natural to him. There is no denying he is amazing at what he does! He was even the official hair stylist for the catwalk at the 2014 Asiana Bridal Show, and has styled Karishma Kapoor's hair for a photoshoot a couple of months ago.
So the purpose of Sundays event was to launch his new hair school. It offers different workshops, depending on what you're looking for, and your skills, to seminars and portfolio days, where the students are able to work with models and photographers to build up their own portfolio.
Here is a few pictures taken from his Facebook that I liked:
We have never been to an event like this so we were totally lost at what to wear.
Kayennat wore some Asos trousers, with a printed top, black blazer, and cream & pink heels. She finished the look with a black clutch, her normal stack of beaded bracelets and her usual fabulous hair.
(Kayennat:I thought black was meant to be slimming but clearly not...)
The Kimmy K inspired wall!
I wore a purple floral print dress, that puffs up slightly, black tights, and maroon wedges. Carried a white clutch, and only wore a statement wing ring.
Back to the Launch Party
We arrived in Dad's Taxi, had some drinks and mingled with the guests.
Oooed at the decor
Checked some social media stuff
enjoyed the food
The food was absolutely fabulous
stared at fashionable people....
Met the lovely Sabika Imam (@sabeekaimam)
Bumped into Ziggi Akhtar of Ziggi Studios. Hadn't a clue who he was when we took his picture. We asked him to pose for us purely because of his fabulous moustache!
Had some more food
Took some selfies
Met up with Rabia from Asian Wedding Ideas. We asked a guy to take a picture of us and Oh my God he was beyond clueless.
We watched the show (for pictures of the fashion show click here)
ate some more food
I have no idea what those were but they were delicious
The mini donughts and macaroons were so cute
spoke to the man of the hour Aamir Naveed
Oooed some more at the decor
(oooed is totally a word now by the way)
and then left with our goody bags. At this point our feet were totally dying in the heels and we were dying to take them off.
The event was all in all, FABULOUS. The location was incredible ( It was held in an old factory location called Aston house), the food was beautiful and tasted amazing (by Five Rivers, and let's be honest, it's ALWAYS about the food) the drinks were fantastic, the atmosphere was amazing, and we met some lovely people. A fab night!
