The Magnum Temptation.

Guess who paid a visit to The hansel HQ today?
The Magnum Man! And he left us with a big dark chocolate brown box all tied up with ribbon. 

I kept the red plastic "wax-seal" - I might just hot-glue a pin on the back and give it to a friend whose name starts with the letter "M" to wear as a brooch. ;-)

It's Magnum's new flavours - Hazelnut and Fruit Bonbon!

 Check out the boxed packaging!

We thought it was a pretty atas way to package an ice cream on a stick.

I noticed a curved groove that ran down the middle of this new ice cream.
(It appears white only because it was VERY frozen when we received the box of ice cream.)

I always LOVE ice creams with chunky bits in the middle - they always make for a great contrast against the soft ice cream.

I tried the Magnum Temptation Hazelnut.

Our shop staff Lynette happened to pop by the studio and grabbed some for the shop girls too.

:-) And this is Shengjuan and her Fruit Bon Bon flavoured ice cream.

It's always so nice to get sweet surprises like these in the middle of a work day.
Thank you Magnum!!!

Project Jem

Aspiring fashion designers take note!!!

I'll be Judge and Design Mentor for Project Jem - a nation-wide search for just ONE design talent to create the entire set of uniforms for upcoming lifestyle mall at Jurong East, Jem.

For competition entry submissions, contestants need to submit just two uniform outfit designs for the Concierge department. Three shortlisted submissions will be selected and these three designers will have to present their designs in person to me and a panel of judges in their fight for the prize!

ONLY one winner will be selected. Under my mentorship, he will expand his two designs to the whole set of uniforms for Jem. The finalized designs will be used by  Jem staff and the winner gets $3,000!!! Yaay!!!

So what do you need to do to enter?

First stop - go to the Project Jem Facebook Page where you can download the design brief and read up on my tips on designing uniforms on the Project Jem blog.

There are a few videos that Jem has prepared...This one introduces Project Jem.

In this one, Annie and I speak on the role that uniform design plays in Jem. There're some tips in there too!

Last but not least, a video of the future!

Can you think of someone who might be keen to enter???
