Recog­nis­ing in­no­va­tion

The Sun (Malaysia) - - STYLE - BY YEO CHIA HUI

IN con­junc­tion with MODA’s 26th An­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions, the MODA SAM­SUNG In­no­va­tor Awards 2016 was held re­cently.

It was a plat­form for some of the most gifted and in­no­va­tive young de­sign­ers to col­lab­o­rate with equally tal­ented hair­styl­ists and make-up artists to present a total look to show­case their ex­cep­tional ta­lent and tech­nique for a col­lec­tive pre­sen­ta­tion on the run­way.

This year, the award took in­spi­ra­tion from the Sam­sung Galaxy S7 and the Sam­sung Galaxy S7 Edge and the par­tic­i­pants seized this op­por­tu­nity to show­case imag­i­na­tive creations that con­tain un­bri­dled style, in­trigu­ing ex­pres­sion and ex­per­i­men­tal in­no­va­tion.

Each team com­prised a de­signer who was re­spon­si­ble to cre­ate three com­plete out­fits (two for women and one for men) as well as to col­lab­o­rate with the hair­styl­ist and make-up artist for a co­he­sive and com­plete look to en­tice and ex­cite an elec­tri­fied au­di­ence dur­ing the run­way pre­sen­ta­tion.

In the end, rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Sam­sung chose three teams who best en­vi­sioned and trans­lated the el­e­ments of their Sam­sung Galaxy S7 phone as in­spi­ra­tion into their col­lec­tions.

The win­ners were team Gavin Tan with his hair­styl­ist, Alex Beh and make-up artist, Ce­line Toh with their en­try “Plea­sure Ex­pres­sion”; team Trista Lim with her hair­styl­ist, Aaron and makeup artist, Ying Xuan, with their en­try of “The Face”; and team Shawn Lee with his hair­styl­ist, Wil­liam and make-up artist May Tan with their en­try “Con­nec­tion”.

Ev­ery team mem­ber walked home with a brand new Sam­sung Galaxy S7.
