4 days of our #Instafood class went by just like that! We can't believe it. So we're thankful we had Nicole, aka Sorella Muse, there to capture all the foodie magic that was going on. The Bloesem Team, represented by Zara S., together with popular instagrammer, Trisha Toh from Malaysia, taught the students how to make full use of their smart phone camera and style food to create those mouth-watering shots you see on instagram.
Bloesem will be taking our #Instafood class to Amsterdam this March! So make sure to grab your spots early.
In the meantime, here's a quick look back at how the Food styling and mobile photography classes went. If you love the photography like we do, make sure to follow Nicole on her instagram as well. She's a peach! (this works perfectly when talking about a food styling class don't you think?)

We always love stocking products from new labels in our Bloesem Shop and even more supporting young independent brands. When we caught eyes on these beautifully printed notebooks from Malaysian label, Mossery, we thought no further and had to get our hands on them. With their notebooks exclusively sold in Singapore in the Bloesem Shop, we get to know more about the trio behind this fun stationery label in our latest issue of the Bloesem Gazette.
Tell us 3 little known facts about Mossery.
1. Our old logo is a chameleon and our latest logo is based on the chinese character - forest 森 which represents our responsibility to make the world a better place.
2. The tallest member is 193cm tall and the shortest member is 153cm. Venti, Grande and Tall.
3. We spent hours choosing hundreds of samples to get the paper right – so that it feels good to even flip it, smells good and works great with any writing instrument.
Tell us more about the team behind Mossery’s fun stationery.
We are a team of three graphic designers – a designer, a marketer and a printer with a passion to design and make things.
What is the Mossery style and where do you gain inspiration from?
We don’t know what is our style yet as we are still learning and absorbing different inspiration from everywhere. We try to get inspiration from other design disciplines like fine arts or architecture. Our latest batch is mainly inspired by the fashion world.

Since the establishment of the Bloesem Creative Space in February (yes, we will be celebrating our 1 year anniversary very soon!), we have been taking on several freelance styling projects. We have been very fortunate to work with a whole host of amazing brands to create quality content to connect these brands with an international audience of loyal readers and potential customers.
Most recently, we shared our styling and photography for Le Petit Society's Spring/Summer '15 collection.
As Bloesem readers, you know we only share what we think is the absolute best. We have to like it before we write about it. This goes the same for the brands we work with. At the back of our minds, we are always thinking about what our Bloesem readers will enjoy, always looking for companies with the same mindset and thinking. We believe that is the best for our readers, our collaborators and ourselves. Win, Win, Win!
We are committed to working with clients that share our finesse and drive to push the limits, forging ahead. We want to help you discover new ways to grab the attention of the billions of people that consume media on a daily basis.
We are keen to work together with many more labels, so if you would like to receive a copy of the Bloesem Styling booklet where you can see more of our styling works, do drop us an email at Bloesemads[at]me[dot]com. The booklet is also available for your online viewing pleasure.
Set yourself apart from the crowd. Work with Bloesem to create content that will give you a distinct competitive advantage.
