5 things to LOVE about KLFW

Female (Malaysia) - - EXCLUSIVE -

1.

It’s a plat­form that pro­vides the op­por­tu­nity for de­sign­ers all over the ASEAN re­gion to show­case their tal­ent. Kuala Lumpur Fash­ion Week Ready To Wear 2017 has been work­ing closely with Tourism Malaysia and AirAsia, and as a re­sult, they’ve de­cided to in­vite six in­ter­na­tional guest de­sign­ers from Aus­tralia, China, In­dia, Ja­pan, Philip­pines and South Korea to cre­ate a bi­lat­eral di­a­logue be­tween lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional de­sign­ers!

You’ll get to own the beau­ti­ful de­signs show­cased on the run­way! Since the col­lec­tions are all Ready To Wear, you’ll be able to pur­chase the clothes, shoes and ac­ces­sories you’ve been eye­ing from the de­sign­ers’ re­spec­tive web­sites, at Fash­ionValet’s Pav­il­ion store and Ise­tan Suria KLCC’s tem­po­rary pop-up store.

3.

KLFW RTW 2017 will be col­lab­o­rat­ing with Ama­zon Fash­ion Week TOKYO to send one Malaysian de­signer to Ja­pan to dis­play his or her best work at the show. We’re proud of our Malaysian tal­ents, and we can’t wait for the rest of the world to give them some muchde­served at­ten­tion!

4.

AirAsia Run­way Ready De­signer Search 2016 win­ner Anu­ruk Jaidee will be de­but­ing his very first com­plete run­way col­lec­tion. The Thai de­signer, whose palace-in­spired de­signs cap­tured the eye of judges An­drew Tan, Vivy Yu­sof and AirAsia Berhad CEO Aireen Omar, will be one of the con­tribut­ing cou­turi­ers at KLFW RTW 2017, and we’re look­ing for­ward to his in­au­gu­ral run­way show.

5.

We’ll be see­ing lots of Malaysian in­flu­ences in the show­cased de­signs. In col­lab­o­ra­tion with Yayasan Noor Al-Syakur (YANAS), a foun­da­tion started by Tunku Noor Hay­ati and Tengku Te­meng­gong of Ke­lan­tan to raise funds for those af­fected by the floods in 2014 to 2015, six emerg­ing de­sign­ers will launch their con­tem­po­rary batik cre­ations un­der the new Fash­ion For­ward Ready To Wear: Batik Ke­lan­tan seg­ment.
