Amber Chia Academy Launch @ Jaya One

By 21:47 ,

The Amber Chia Academy was launched on Tuesday!! After 12 years in the industry this is a move thats been waiting to happen.

The Academy spread over 2,000 square feet

Before I get into the details, I have to say that despite being heavily pregnant, Amber Chia looked radiantly beautiful in a red dress! :)

Speaking with much passion and excitement at the press conference, Amber Chia is thrilled that her dream has finally been realised. Together with Benjamin Toong ("Catwalk Guru") and Desmond Yoi ("Makeup Guru"), they are determined to share a wealth of experience and knowledge in an upbeat and creative style that will transform the way models model and reinvent the way makeup artists makeup.

*thinks* Maybe I should consider the makeup course since everytime I attempt eye makeup, I end up looking like Po the Panda.. lol!

Models who have completed the course and is viewed with having potential will get a chance to participate in the New York fashion week!! All expense paid by the way! How cool is that! The Academy is also hopeful in finding Malaysia's next supermodel. It could be you! *Being 5'4" can be so depressing sometimes..*

Modelling course : Range from RM1,688 to RM3,888
Makeup course : Begins at RM699

Future Plans?
Even before the launch, Amber Chia Academy has been offered a franchise.  An offer that's hard to resist, they are definitely thinking about it. There has also been talks on sponsoring a reality show around end of this year to early next year. Wait for it.

The launch was followed by a party for celebrities, members of the media and also specially invited guests. Spotted at the party were Dato Jimmy Choo, Dato Anna Lim, Daphne Iking, Dennis Lau, Gillian Hung, Ning Baizura, Daniel Tan, Jojo Goh, Kelly Jagan and more.

The party continued into the evening!
