Parkamaya, a new Asian fashion retail concept store managed by Parco Japan, will open in December 2012 at Fahrenheit88, Kuala Lumpur. If you have not heard about them, it is time to go to their Facebook page! They are looking for a brand ambassador through a 3-day audition and your votes are counted until 28 October 2012.
Akiko (yours truly) was at Fahrenheit88 to attempt the audition and here is the report! I was first approached by one of the staff to participate in Parkamaya’s audition by having my photo taken at the little studio booth. Despite my repeated refusal (because I wanted to go to the toilet first) she insisted, so it was amusing to see her eagerness to invite me.
The first thing to do is register at the counter located on Fahrenheit88 ground floor. Then you get to pick some clothes on standby (if you need to change) and get your makeup done by an artist (if you want to). I wore my own lolita-inspired outfit with makeup, so the makeup artist only added lipstick and blusher for me.
Once I stepped in the studio area, the photographer told me to give him 10 poses. Each of my poses were seconds apart, with some spin and struts. I had an option to buy a printed A4-sized photograph of myself but I walked away without it. I was informed to check Parkamaya’s Facebook album the next day and that’s about it.
Nothing extraordinary happened except that we are excited to see who makes it to the finalist to win the position as Parkamaya Brand Ambassador! Click ‘Like’ and share with your friends on Akiko’s audition photo if you wish to give her your support~
