In August 2022, Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week, held in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, was an eventful return since the prolonged hiatus due to Covid-19. With Nelissa Hilman and other notable names in the industry making their mark on the runway once more, her eponymous label celebrates Nelissa’s momentous return with a stunning minimalist womenswear capsule collection.
For the Spring/Summer 2023 season, Nelissa Hilman prioritises quality over quantity, focusing on a smaller number of silhouettes while ensuring that all pieces feel versatile and respond to every season and occasion. This shows a strong feat of “culture-conscious” local designers, as they continue to thrive in creating pieces that all women can flaunt in this multicultural country.
A decade after the label was founded, Nelissa Hilman presents an inaugural womenswear capsule collection that boasts an elevated version of modern basics in clean and unfussy silhouettes. The capsule collection consists of eight styles, from garments to footwear, made for all women.
