Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week just recently ended and boy, oh boy, this fashion week would probably resonate with us for a really long time. Hosted by AndrewsModels Malaysia, KLFW celebrated its sixth year of showcasing and supporting local designers and their Ready-To-Wear (RTW) collections.

Designers and guests really stepped up their game this year and were more inclusive, bold, and diverse compared to the previous years. Female-empowerment is as strong as ever right now, and it’s high-time Malaysian designers start to implement the movement in their art and craft.

 


Here are some women-empowering moments and looks of Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week 2018:

 


1. Models of different body shapes, skin tones, and ages walked for Min Luna x FashionValet’s collection

#NotFragile was the name of the collection and it was all about embracing every woman.

Nalisa Alia Amin, a body-positive activist and plus-sized model opened the show, rocking a beautiful colour-blocking jumpsuit. Sonya Danita, a model born with Vitiligo, empowering those with the same condition to embrace it. Iman Mohamed Osman Yagoub, a model, literally glowing down the runway! And who can forget the fabulous grandma in the pink suit, strutting down the runway so confidently?!

2. Fazura walking down the runway like an absolute queen!

Representing her own brand, Fazbulous, Fazura made everyone around her drop dead (quite literally) on the runway.

3. Supermodel Tinie slaying at all the shows she has walked in

If you’ve been keeping up with the shows, you’d probably seen Tinie open and close almost every show. The supermodel is known for her edgy and strong look, backed up with a mean walk that’s bound to turn heads.

5. Everyone that attended the show looking bomb!

What’s a fashion week without the guests and their streetstyle?

KLFW is also the time where most people can whip out their Malaysian-weather-inappropriate outfits, proving that beauty is a hot and sweaty pain.
