We’re halfway through Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week 2017, Ready to Wear collection and Jubahsouq opened the 12pm show with a modest Grecian goddess chic collection of dresses in shiny satin and floor-sweeping skirts punctuated with plenty of glittering embellishments.

Youme & Hunny makes an appearance next with a collection centered around a nude palette. Shirts were restyled creatively, and collars were a main staple in the collection.

When Aria the Label‘s collection hit the runway, we were instantly in love; bronzey, billowing skirts with exposed shoulders and balloon sleeves were aplenty. We thought we’ve seen avant-garde in ready to wear fashion during KL Fashion Week 2017, but A-Jane Dissonanz proved us wrong. Not only was the colour-blocking game in the collection strong (neon yellow against electric blue, anyone?), the cut-out lantern sleeves were also pretty dramatic, as is the asymmetric vibes in the collection.

Twenty3 wrapped up the 12PM show nicely with an athleisure, street-style collection. The white shirt made its appearance many times with blue denim, and hoodie dresses cemented the athleisure style.

Later, over at the Air Asia Runway Ready Designer Search 2017 show, we saw a strong set of finalists from the ASEAN countries showcase their collection on the runway for judges. The panel included notable magazine editors from the surrounding regions, KL Fashion Week founder Andrew Tan, Fashion Valet co-founder Vivy Yusof, and more.

The winner? Tran Thi Tu from Vietnam. The petite lass will be showcasing her full collection for next year’s KL Fashion Week. Here’s a glimpse of today’s highlights.
