TudungPeople UPDATE!!

4 Apr

It’s been a long time since the last update. There is at least 4 drafts standing still in my documents. The tiny monster below is the thing that has been keeping me busy >.<

Before and after

That is TudungPeople new Operational Centre! Yippeee! It is almost done. At this particular moment, they’re still installing the electrical wires. The place was delayed by a few weeks due to numerous incidents- chasing down the suppliers every few hours everyday to get their job done and even the wires got stolen! It has been tough but hopefully this will make TudungPeople runs smoothly, making you and I smile widely. Weeeett.

In between, there were a few photoshoots with magazine and fellow friends, meet-up with Hana Tajima and sudden breakdown due to my refusal to shave my eyebrows- Yep true story. Mundane events in life made dramatic by me. I’ve even met a lot of new friends in varied sizes (read: Yuyu Zulaikha) LOL There are many pictures and stories in the draft. Summing it up in one entry would be better than killing you bored readers.

Meanwhile here are the answers for the many questions TP has received this past months.

What is TP Operational Centre?
TudungPeople Operational Centre is like an office, for us to manage deliveries and such. There will be more crews coming in and handling the deliveries than before. Insya Allah, this will make the orders and deliveries done smoothly!

Does it functions like a normal shop?
Not really. As this is more of an office, TudungPeople still do things online and via emails. The place is not suitable to do any walk-in purchases.

Why don’t you want to open a shop?
Why don’t you become my investor? Haha kiddinnnng. Insya Allahhh in a few years ;)

Is there a place where I can see all the items before buying it?
Currently we don’t have a place for that but insya Allah, maybe we can work out for a hijabster meetings where we can display our products and exchanges meeting or just plain lepaks. Also, my resolution this year is to find time to attend a bazaar for those who prefer to see the shawls before buying it!

Why is there so little update?
Little updates comes from little time. Since TP Operational used to be in Penang, I had to travel back and forth every few days to attend class and manage TudungPeople. It is a 5 hours journey everytime.- This was the main reason for moving the operational centre to KL.

I heard you are still studying? Where and what are you studying? Can we meet up in your uni?
I am studying Architecture in IIUM Gombak but I don’t live in campus and I don’t have class everyday. It would be quite hard to meet up during weekdays due to my busy schedule and its not cool to hang out in Uni during weekends hahaha.

There are many rumors that you’re from Singapore and Brunei? Which of it is true?
Tetttt. Both are incorrect. Hahaha. I’m from, raised and based in Malaysia. TP Brunei and Singapore are handled separately by our premium distributors ;)

/////////////////////////////
TudungPeople is still on hiatus and will be officially open tomorrow (Thursday at 9PM) with brand new updates. All orders will be reset and we will be having a surprise for our understanding friends <3

Hijabista: Maria Elena

14 Mar

My favourite blogger for her wacky crazeyy fun personality and cool style! She’s a great example of a power woman. Maria Elena, 25 years old engineer is a famous blogger that blogs about anything random <3

Beautiful profile picture for Jelita Magazine

Maria Elena during her engagement

Innertia: Her own line of Inner wears. Hence, Inner-tia. Smart dont you think ;D

Maria Elena on the move. She is wearing TudungPeople Azzahra.(Okayy I'm starting to be bias in choosing pictures hihi)

Maria Elena: shopping in TudungPeople SFY XL in Maroon.

The many proof that wearing an extra coverage hijab does not hinder woman's duty and dream <3 Maria Elena is wearing TudungPeople SFY XL in Grey.

Maybe many internet-ains know Maria Elena by heart, but I personally think that Maria’s charm does not only lie in her quirky personality, it’s her firm and strong beliefs that she portrayed, to be true to yourself and always improve. Something that I’ve always remind myself as well. Being a muslim girl myself, it is easy to get carried away when you’re in the limelight. Insya Allah, we will always be guided on His path. Aminn.

Check out her blog (http://peliks.blogspot.com) and on another note, SFY XL will be updated sometime in April :D!

This is a lil random but here something to watch when you’re bored,].

Sorry for the lack of update. It has been a crazeyyy week!! I got an idea for a new tutorial! I hope I can have some time to do it! Ahak! See ya <3

Lotsa love, Fazrena TPC

BTS: Jelita Photoshoot

7 Mar

Hi girls! It has been a crazy roller coaster week! It has been nearly 8 months since TudungPeople was launched officially. Alhamdulillah! TudungPeople was so lucky to be featured in Jelita Hijab Style this April! It’s only a column but I can’t help but being super happy about it ;D

Blame darling Izni, the talented Jelita writer that turned me into a happy corny bunny! It’s also my first time coming to set as a Hijab stylist.


It took me an hour to find Berita Publishin. The endless jams are to die for >.<. I was wearing a floral dress from Banner Barret with jeans and cardigan hoping to look cute and trendy but I ended up looking bloated and fatty. Too late to regret thattt. Skip the picture below.


That is Izni and the bloat (read: me) during the shoot interval in the make up room. 

Once entered, I did not take much time to play dress up with the uber skinny model. She rocks any look and absolutely makes my self-esteem hit rock bottom as well. It was a 4 style shoots and 1 full shot. You can see the model doing her thangs, and you don’t see me strutting, giving instructions and running with a box of pins behind.

I was not allowed to take much photos but I will remember to update again once the magazine is out. It featured Chest Covering Hana Tajima style haha! That really took me a while to re-create the look.


The team behind the shoot. From left to right, the cool photographer, the awesome make up artist Muhielara, the model Annyss, miserable me and lovely writer Izni. The picture is taken by the second photographer. Thank you missy. (See my foolish leg crossing attempt to look skinnier. It could not fool anyone, I didn’t even bother to liquify.)

This was my second time working with a magazine (first was Dara.com) and the very first attempt of working with Jelita. I’m sorry for the lack of photos. Behind the scene images are not opened to public due to its copyright materials. Maybe I can show more bts during my advertorial photoshoot, that if anyone wants to see

Teaser:
A few days after that, Izni called me for a make over shoot! I had to upload the picture due to my love for the make up artist, Cik Non. The real clothes are covered by the cute panda costume just so that Jelita won’t sue me. Love ya all!


ps: I can’t wait to do a video tutorial for this look! It is perasanly splendid. (Read: Perasan is the malay word for self proclaimed)

Till then, Fazrena TudungPeople Crew.

Hijab Lookbook: Peach treat

2 Mar


TudungPeople Hijab Lookbook: Peach Treat. The colour was spelling suweeeeet all over.

I’m wearing:
Shawls: Arraynaa Off Cream with Numa Nude
Top: Kimono jacket by none other than, The FlapperWings.

The kimono top looks official in skirt. Like an ultra modern baju kurung. I just had to upload the 2nd picture. It reminds me of an eid advert, a loyal wife waiting for the husband to come home from war. Okey kiddingggg.

The update came a day late. I just got back from a photoshoot for Jelita Magazine yesterday. The skinny Jelita model is making me feel obese!!! Will update on that later tonight. Till then! Muaxx!

Hijab Lookbook : Colour Blocking

28 Feb

Spring 2012 color trend- cheerful colour blocking. Yellow is to be colour key this season. Mixing Mustard and Striking Blue kimono overcoat brightens up this Spring look!

Here is the close up of me wearing TudungPeople NUMA Mustard and FlapperWings Two Tone Kimono Cardigan. I’m thinking of putting this style in queue for the next Hijab Tutorial. What do you think?

Not forgetting, to top up this look with modern cat eye and array of muted red lipstick. Remember there’s no need to shave your eyebrows or wear fake lashes, ladies ;) Spring is all about eau de natural.

There’s still another one pending look by FlapperWings before I move on to another review.
Till then, lots of love!

Hijab Lookbook: Into the light

Do you think I should make a Hijab Tutorial for this style?

TudungPeople Tutorial: Side Fringe Hijab


.
It has been quite a while since my last tutorial! I took the time to know how to self record using a DSLR and edit the video using another application besides Imovie! It’s not easy to get this rusty mind back to work so someone please tell me that it looks better than the previous videos. I’ll give you some candies >.<!

Going back to the topic, this style is inspired by a picture of this lovely hijabista, Nunaa Ali. She’s  the winner of TudungPeople Who Favourite Icon.

I absolutely love this style! Check the video out and don’t mind the introduction video. That is still via webcam, it’s the only thing that can hold up to my many takes. I am very very bad at talking in front of the camera.

Ohh, if I might add, I would suggest wearing this style over a jacket or a cardigan. It ends just below the neck could be a lil short for certain people or someone with longer neck than mine. Aha! See ya!
