KL FASHION WEEK 2017: WAS IT ‘LIT’ OR ‘DEAD’?
Fashion is my passion. I once read this quote: “Born to shop, forced to go to school” – I feel this sums me up pretty well. A few weeks ago, I had the chance to attend a KL Fashion Week show with my friends, and we had a blast!
It was fun to see all the creatively designed and beautifully tailored outfits. It was also a great experience to have the opportunity to meet Malaysian beauty bloggers, celebrities, and designers. As the beautiful models walked on stage, we were able to see how talented Malaysian designers are, and how Western and Malaysian fashion is rather similar in some ways. One thing for sure is that the Malaysian fashion industry is definitely up to date and on par with the West.
Not only did the models get to wear beautiful and elegant clothes, everyone who attended the show was dressed fashionably and looked dashing – as though they, themselves, were ready to walk the runway. Another big highlight of the show (of course) was the gift bags filled with cool goodies.
The fashion that was showcased was from the online shop called FashionValet, and featured the hashtag #IAMHOMEGROWN. The designs were so mesmerizing. And, seeing the co-founder, Datin Vivy Yusof, from where I was seated was just so satisfying. I also had the opportunity to meet and greet one of the models, Shikin Gomez, as well as editors from other magazines.
Overall, this fashion show was not just about the models or the outfits, but the full experience– and all I can say is that it was AWESOME and totally worth it!
