Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week RTW 2016
All Is Amazing
Emerging as a platform for Malaysian designers to showcase their ready to wear collections in 2013, it has become the ultimate highlight for Malaysia's fashion industry to promote their works across an array of local and international customers. Breaking their record with more than 100,000 people coming together over five days at Pavillion KL to witness more than 80 local designer's collections last year, this year is set to become another hit with our personal favs such as Atelier Fitton, Justin Chew, TSyahmi, Motoguo, Zakwan Anuar and many more.
