Here We Come 2009!

It is just a week before we say goodbye to 2008 and welcome 2009, can you believe it?! Regardless of how quickly the year has gone far for us, I'm glad that I spent it with all of you. I hope that 2008 has treated you as well as you deserve. By the way, this a new semester coming. How's the last semester's exam/assessment result for each one of you? If it not so good work harder, if its excellent, maintain and sustain it!

One more thing, our 'Bengkel' renovation has been completed and ready to serve you guys! As I said before, it's not a major renovation, but it is still better than before. A few things need to be done to make our 'Bengkel' more 'ceria' and I'm still working on it. Hope a small things can make a different, and I definitely will upload the photos soon!

Last but not least, thank you for all supporting Fashion Department Blog by logging in, commenting, sharing & writing about our Blog, hopefully more students will joining in. Even this blog not always updated, at-least we have something to share and talk about. Beside with my hectic schedule, maybe next year I will try my best to update this blog as much as I can. We have built something special here which is a place to enjoy fashion design.

Until then, I will see you guys again soon to share a new year together!

While You Guys Were Out!

Wondering what happened to our 'bengkel' during semester break? Well I guess the 'bengkel' never get a break, it was renovated since early this month. The renovation still in progress which is involved a small section in our 'bengkel' especially we will get a new paint job, brand new window, of-course much more better than previous one :) The rest... we just wait and see until it complete soon.

Maybe it's not a major renovation then, but somehow, hmmm... it made our 'bengkel' upgraded since... i don't know, maybe since Fashion Dept. was opened. Hopefully we will appreciate it and just take a good care of it!

歓迎! (Do itashi mashite!/Welcome)

Our Fashion Dept. earlier this week hosted fourteen visiting foreign students who are from Hachiman High School, Japan. It's an event that they wanting to explore each other‘s culture more. Here at 'Bengkel Fashion' the lecturer  teach them how to make 'Baju Kurung Kedah' because it is easy and simple to make in a short time. Because of the language barrier, we have a bit difficulty to communicate with them but everything going well. Last, but not least thanks to all the students who assist during the event. You guys doing a great job.

We expect that by engaging in this type of program, both sides will gain a better understanding of other cultures and broaden their horizons. Maybe our Fashion student will visit to other country someday? Hopefully...

Fashion Dept. T-shirt

The Official Fashion Department's 2008 T-shirt is born! Finally we have our own merchandise, maybe it's only the beginning and hopefully more products to come. Anyway, we like to keep things simple for the design, because I believe we are creative people that take the complexity out of simplicity. It's simple, relevant and effective graphic design.

A lot of people think a simple basic t-shirt is very boring. But it isn't...it's very useful and you can wear anything at it. Pair it with your vest, jacket, accessories...and more. Well, it's only cost you RM25, fabric made with 100% cotton. Please contact FASTO's member if interested.



p/s Watch-out for FASTO's official t-shirt, will coming out soon!
