It’s been a long five days, but trust us when we say we’re actually slightly sad to see KL Fashion Week 2017 leave. We started out our day with Zero to Ten, Adila Long, and DD Collective — now here’s more for the second half of the final day of KL Fashion Week 2017.
First off, Kavita Sidhu showed off her fashion line Kvita. Her many long, billowing print dresses invoke memories of a tropical beach resort vacation. A former beauty queen herself, Sidhu also made sure to include beauty queens Amber Chia and Deborah Henry in her runway model lineup, and they certainly upped the glam factor in the show.
From womenswear to menswear, Korean brand Resurrection showcased a collection of extremely edgy, all-black men’s street style clothing. Should you be daring enough, their sheer tops and jackets also warrant a try. Moving on, Nurita Harith closed the 7PM show and her Japanese-inspired robes featured drapes and wraparound motifs giving structure to a collection that consisted of a navy, black, white, and maroon palette.
Alia Bastamam was the last show for KL Fashion Week 2017 . The designer showed one collection from each of her two brands. The first to emerge on the runway was Alia B., a casual, loungey series that featured a loose silhouette and bright pops of oranges.
The Alia Bastamam collection in contrast was the grown-up version of Alia B. with its cuts and designs that featured longer hems and elegant designs. Loose silhouettes were still the common feature in both brands, and we also saw several backless pieces peeking through the collection.
With that, the last show from Alia Bastamam brought KL Fashion Week 2017 to a close. It was a long five days, but certainly worth watching all of the local designers showcase their latest collections. Did you have a particular favourite over the past five days?
