Xixili Lingerie Fashion Show 2017 – Wanderlust, Come Away With Me

  

XIXILI unveiled their Spring Summer 2017 Collections in its 5th annual lingerie fashion show themed “Wanderlust, Come Away With Me” at Makespace, Quill City Mall on 18 May 2017. The theme was inspired by the Spring Summer 2017 campaign shoot taken in Bali; capturing the outdoor serenity with natural daylight; breezy weather; nonchalant poses and effortless styling.

 

 

 

Jenn Chia (Instagrammer and social media celebrity @soimjenn) hosted the show and surprised the crowd with an opening song performance – ‘Tonight You Belong To Me’ with her ukulele

A 4-piece live band led by Xiong entertained the guests with the best bossa nova summer music

 

The show  featured a total of 56 lingerie sets from everyday basic wear to those for special occasions with an extensive of brassieres styles and loungewear. This season’s colour palette is dominated by shades of pastel pink, sweet ivory and champagne gold, all with an array of intertwined delicate embroidery laces and lustre microfiber fabrics. This season’s collection also included statement lingerie pieces in animal leopard prints – for the tigress woman in corporate or in the bedroom.

Stupidity vs Ignorance

STUPIDITY
noun

“I can’t believe my own stupidity”
synonyms: lack of intelligence, foolishness, denseness, brainlessness, ignorance, dull-wittedness, slow-wittedness, doltishness, slowness; More
the quality of being stupid or unintelligent.
“a comedy of infantile stupidity”

 

IGNORANCE
noun

“he acted in ignorance of basic procedures”
synonyms: incomprehension of, unawareness of, unconsciousness of, unfamiliarity with, inexperience with, lack of knowledge about, lack of information about; informalcluelessness about
“a statement that shows a complete ignorance of the regulations”
lack of knowledge, lack of education, unenlightenment, illiteracy;
lack of intelligence, stupidity, foolishness, idiocy
“both ignorance and poverty contribute to the growing problem of forced child labor”

 

For the longest time, I thought they were one and the same. However over the past couple of years, as more and more politicians as well as individuals linked to certain parties in our fair land started making stupid statements, I discovered the difference.

The stupid statements were meant to fool the ignorant citizens which allowed the person/ party making the stupid statement to get away with whatever stupid/ unethical/ immoral/ criminal act they perpetrated.

Guess the jokes on us in the end. It’s time the citizens of our fair land cast off the cloak of ignorance and hold the people accountable for their misdeeds. Failure to do so will see the country going to the dogs.
