Last Thursday I was invited to a launch party at Sheung Wan Lomography gallery store, for their brand new – La Sardina – camera. I was really really surprised when I got their invitation email!
I’ve always been a huge fan of Lomography. Not only do I own seven Lomo cameras (Fisheye, Horizon Kompakt, LC-A, Colorsplash, Diana, Holga and Super Sampler), I even put all of them into my backpack and went on a trip to Europe for 80 days. (Yea, that’s also how my knee problem get started.) What I’m trying to say is, I’m so glad that I got the chance to attend the launch party through The Style Voyager.
I’m still not 100% sure why they got me (or fashion bloggers in general), but I guess it’s because the appearance of La Sardina is very much a fashion accessory, more so than other Lomographic cameras, so they got the idea of incorporating fashion into the party – just a wild guess. But I like the idea of blending the camera into your outfit (or on the other hand, build your outfit around the camera).
The concept of the party is really fun. The gallery store at Po Yan Street was turned into a fish market (Okay I don’t know what they did but the whole place smells like fish) with fish bucket and fishing nets lying around. It was so much fun to have everyone dressed up for the theme – fisherman, though most of them ended up looking sailor-ish. I can tell that they have put a lot of thoughts into the party and it worked out (amazingly).
So thank you everyone @Lomography for the lovely evening and El Capitan! I would have purchased it myself cox a real fan doesn’t miss a thing!
Special thanks to Justin, Edwin and the lovely young lady in floral jumpsuit for showing me around and answering my questions : P Uh I’m bad with names : ( But you’re all really really sweet! Again, thank you for having me in your party!
Photographs by me.
I was having a bad skin day so no photos of me at the event : P ( Don’t hate on me.) But I’ve put together another outfit with El Capitan as my main accessory. Stay tuned : )
