The Red Blooded Vixens by Na Forrer

  
Hi everyone! Wearrior A here, it's been a while since we've been live on the blog. A lot has changed with me, both internally and externally. Eventually it became difficult to come back as Wearrior A. Fortunately, Wearrior Instinct was approached by someone special sometime in November last year who managed to convince me to make a comeback. She is a strong woman with a vision and passion for creativity, confidence and fashion. Hardworking Mom, Lady Boss and Designer, Farhanna Pura of Na Forrér! Farhanna contacted Wearrior Instinct's A, Alia and Amsaima to collaborate with her design label, Na Forrér including 9 other Bruneian talents to take part in Na Forrér's latest fashion campaign #NFormation. As an 'NF Girl', we got to work hand in hand with Farhanna in designing the #NFormation collection that is dedicated to express our personal style infused with elements of Na Forrér into each piece. 






#NFormation


To describe the #NFormation Fashion Campaign conjures up the adjectives; individualistic, bold, classy, romantic and demure. The collection features a range of styles including couture dresses, gowns and jumpsuits, all expressing high fashion and 'glamsual' looks. There are four distinct concepts from #NFormation that  Na Forrér curated, namely; The Enchantress, Femme Fatale, An All White Affair and The Red Blooded Vixen.

- The Ainul : About -

Just as the name goes, the Red Blooded Vixen concept is strong, bold and alluring. 'The Ainul' for the #NFormation Red Blooded Vixen line is designed as a maxi dress composed of a light crepe body in burgundy. The princess style bodice features a V neckline and luxurious red and gold Songket waist band. One of the main features of 'The Ainul' dress is the romantic tulle ruffled sleeves, decorated with delicate hand-made red and gold Songket flowers. The maxi dress finishes with subtle yet sexy chiffon slits which extends below the knee to the hemline. An extra feature of the dress includes hidden hand pockets placed at the sides of the dress right below the waist.


'The Ainul' dress was designed to encompass certain elements of Wearrior A into Na Forrér. I got to meet Farhanna over coffee and we talked about both our interests and inspirations. Other than fashion, my personal interest lies in mother nature. I've always been drawn to the natural beauty in the environment and so the mood board I prepared for Na Forrér was filled with floral detailing. The theme that I went for was Floral, Frills and Lace. Since #NFormation was all about bold and strong looks, both Wearrior A and Na Forrér combined to form a timeless and chic maxi dress which expresses a mix of feminity and fierceness. Given the timeless and chic themes, 'The Ainul' dress is great for formal occasions such as weddings, dinners and Eid celebrations. If you're bold enough, you could even wear this for a romantic dinner date with your significant other.



- The Ainul : Make-Up -


During the production of #NFormation, we had Malaysian Make-up Artist Natasya (@makeupbynatasya) on standby to help us complete our transformation into NF Girls. Natasya decided to go for a editorial theme for the Red Blooded Vixen photo shoot and kept our make up bold but minimal. She decided to accentuate my features by focusing mainly on the eyes and lips. For my eyes, she kept it fresh by giving me glossy eyelids and eyeliner. As for the lips, she went for a dark burgundy lip to match my dress. As for the base, she kept my face fresh and clean, only to define my cheek bones and nose bridge to give me that bold and sharp look. To frame my face, my hair was pushed back and kept neat and sleek to keep true to that editorial feel.

Natasya has the softest touch and she knows her way around matching the best makeup to suit one's facial features and occasion. She picked the best foundation to suit my skin tone and the right shade of concealer to cover my acne and acne scars. I also loved the way she did my eyebrows, which she kept natural and well defined. On top of that she really has the sweetest personality and made me feel comfortable and happy throughout the transformation. The best part? She made me feel confident thanks to her finishing touch.  




- Being an NF Girl -










Being an NF Girl was a refreshing experience. It was a great opportunity and I really appreciate Farhanna and the other bloggers for all the encouragement and energy. The #NFormation campaign also required us to take part in an editorial photo shoot, working with the production crew, directors and makeup artist. I was out of my comfort zone and found it challenging to express myself because of the professional setting. Despite everyone's social media profile, we all lead regular lives. We all have other responsibilities in the day, be it family, work or education. It was great to see ladies supporting each other, taking the time and effort to work together to create something imaginary and turn it into a reality. Farhanna's vision was also in line with this year's International Women's Day campaign theme 'Be Bold For Change'. Together we celebrated Farhanna's achievement in bringing forward her #NFormation campaign to London Fashion Week, House of Icons. One big step for Brunei and the Women of Brunei!

Wearrior Biographies

AINUL

STATUS: ACTIVE

Hello! Welcome to Wearrior Instinct. I'm Ainul! My style is described best as 'mix and match'. Fashion, to me, is a form of self expression. I dress for myself and I love exploring new and different ways to do it. I believe strongly that we all have the potential to be the best we can be; all we have to do is to follow our (Wearrior) Instinct.



MYUIZZU

STATUS: PAUSE

Hey! I'm Mu'izz. I'm currently taking my masters degree in Political Science at UCL. I would probably say that my fashion style is best described as "Good-boy Oxford look" and I love colours. Although, I am preppy for most of the time, I do also like to mix elements from other fashion style. Right now, I am exploring more of the urban style. For me, Fashion is a platform that expresses and embraces one's individuality. Hopefully, it will inspire you to wear your (Wearrior) instinct! – I am on a research leave at the moment, I will be back soon!



ALIA

STATUS: ACTIVE

Hi! I’m Alia Alkaff, a 20-year-old Graphic Design undergraduate at Norwich University of the Arts. Black enthusiast and a lover of all things minimalistic, which also happens to best describe my style of Fashion. With being a part of Wearrior Instinct it has encouraged me greatly to be proud of what I wear and I hope we as a team will have that effect to bring out your inner Wearrior Instinct!



02FEZ

STATUS: HIATUS

My name is Faiz, but most people call me Fez. I studied at the the University of Leeds and graduated in 2015. I currently run a pop-up based coffee business called Aoyama Coffee. My interests in fashion lie more in on streetwear - and bridging the gap between it and menswear. I'm a fan of the little things in labels that set them apart from others, and my taste is a little unconventional, to say the least. I'm also really into raw denim. I should mention that I'm on hiatus at the moment - but I will be back!



AMSAIMZ

STATUS: ACTIVE

Oh hi there! I run a YouTube channel called AMSAIMA, where I create beauty and styling vlogs. I like to think of my fashion sense as multifaceted - I could dress to the nines with textured garments, look quirky while donning a pair of boyfriend jeans, or go for an alternative retro. Wearrior Instinct doesn’t just provide a space for me to document my looks and write about the pieces I’ve put together, but as I’m all about body positivity, I see this as an opportunity where confidence can be both built and encouraged. Lots of love, Amalsaima (or simply, Amal).
