Un­rav­el­ling fu­ture tal­ents

New Straits Times - - Flair -

INTI stu­dents con­quer the cat­walk with poise and grace.

IT is an in­spir­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to see new ideas on the run­way, es­pe­cially those that feature creative work and skills from fresh and promis­ing tal­ents right from col­lege. INTI In­ter­na­tional Col­lege Subang re­cently revealed such tal­ents at Un­ravel, a fash­ion show show­cas­ing the port­fo­lios of its Diploma in Fash­ion De­sign grad­u­ates 2016.

Held at Pav­il­ion Elite, Kuala Lumpur, Un­ravel was a free­dom of ex­pres­sion at its best with an ar­ray of unique and con­tem­po­rary master­pieces mas­ter­minded by 24 young tal­ents.

MIXED IN­FLU­ENCES

Un­ravel rolls out in­ter­est­ing looks which are a mixed com­bi­na­tion of East­ern and West­ern in­flu­ences, with the in­spi­ra­tions coming from ev­ery­thing un­der the sun — from a sim­ple two-piece casual wear in­spired by the Ja­panese origami and pop punk sub­cul­ture to com­pli­cated takes drawn from the Baroque era.

Most of the pieces re­flect youth­ful and re­bel­lious spir­its, with non-con­form­ist cut, fancy print mo­tifs and play­ful colour-blocks rul­ing the stage.

Be­sides fine, al­lur­ing gowns that ac­cen­tu­ate the soft and fem­i­nine fea­tures of a woman, there are also an­drog­y­nous pieces in ver­sa­tile and over­sized sil­hou­ettes.

Nabi­hah Ridzuan shows her stance on an­drog­yny through her col­lec­tion, Like A Sore Thumb. Her work is about chal­leng­ing stereo­types and con­ser­vatism, and is in­flu­enced by Lon­don’s rad­i­cal Stuck­ism art move­ment. Le Pitre Triste high­lights clas­sic frills and pleats — A col­lec­tion by Lily Far­isha Roslan.
