Peek into the life of one of the coun­try’s top fash­ion de­sign­ers in the eight-part re­al­ity tele­vi­sion se­ries ‘Rizalman’, writes TAHIR ALHAMZAH

New Straits Times - - Entertainment -

CON­TIN­U­ING the tra­di­tion of celebrating Asian tal­ents, tele­vi­sion chan­nel Life In­spired is giv­ing view­ers a taste of the daily life of Datuk Rizalman Ibrahim, one of Malaysia’s cel­e­brated fash­ion de­sign­ers, through its lat­est se­ries, aptly ti­tled Rizalman.

In the all-ac­cess, no holds barred re­al­ity show, the de­signer will be shar­ing his per­sonal life.

Known for his metic­u­lous craft and deft com­bi­na­tion of clas­sic el­e­ments with con­tem­po­rary de­sign, Rizalman is syn­ony­mous with lux­u­ri­ous fash­ion cre­ations — from form-fit­ting gar­ments to flowy kaf­tans and from frills to pe­plums.

He is a favourite among dis­cern­ing ladies — from roy­al­ties and so­cialites, to celebri­ties.

“It was a dream come true when Life In­spired of­fered a TV show on its chan­nel. It is my wish that I sat­isfy the cu­rios­ity of view­ers who wish to find out more about my life and how I han­dle the cre­ative pro­cesses of my work.

“I’ve al­ways been asked on how I man­age it all. I hope the show will an­swer those ques­tions and in­spire view­ers,” he said.

The eight-part se­ries will high­light the daily life of Rizalman, the de­signer, in­te­rior dec­o­ra­tor, cel­e­brated fash­ion guru, wed­ding and event plan­ner, en­tre­pre­neur and de­voted fa­ther.

Get up close and per­sonal, as he seam­lessly jug­gles be­tween his busy sched­ule and dis­cover what in­spires him to cre­ate his works of art.

A show about Rizalman would not be com­plete with­out see­ing him on his jet-set­ting jour­neys. Get ready to travel across the globe travers­ing to Paris, France, Guang Zhou, China, and neigh­bour­ing Sin­ga­pore while the crew joins Rizalman on his ma­te­ri­al­sourc­ing trips and his out-of-the­box cre­ative fash­ion shoots.

Also, do not miss out on spe­cial ap­pear­ances by his A-list friends like TV host, ac­tress and en­tre­pre­neur Neelofa Mohd Noor, for­mer beauty queen Deb­o­rah Priya Henry and singer Dayang Nur­faizah.

Rizalman seems to at­tract the crème de la crème of high so­ci­ety who seeks his ad­vice on ev­ery­thing fash­ion.

Be­sides fea­tur­ing his pool of clien­tele com­pris­ing glit­terati, the show also high­lights the peo­ple be­hind the man who are stars in their own right, in­clud­ing his two adopted chil­dren.

Also in­cluded is Rizalman’s 25th Ju­bilee Collec­tion.

Ac­cord­ing to him, it was time to raise the bar and be on par with other in­ter­na­tional fig­ures.

Be­ing a Malaysian rep­re­sen­ta­tive on a re­gional plat­form, he said, he was de­lighted to share his story on Life In­spired.

It has also cu­rated exclusive dig­i­tal con­tent of the show, which can be found on its dig­i­tal plat­forms. Visit www.litvchan­nel.com to find out more. Rizalman pre­mieres May 30, and airs on Tues­days at 10pm, on Life In­spired (Astro chan­nel 728).

Datuk Rizalman Ibrahim hopes the tele­vi­sion show will in­spire view­ers.
