Two new shows added to Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week 2014
UITM design students will be showing alongside established names like Farah Khan, Khoon Hooi and Tom Abang Saufi
In its second year, Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week (KLFW) will feature over 80 local designers, both established and emerging. The main focus this year is The Runway Collection, a selection of runway-worthy distinctive new lines and structures that have yet to make an impact in the mass market.
“We are looking to change the mindset of younger generation shoppers that Malaysian designers are on par with international retail markets,” said Andrew Tan, founder of KLFW.
Adding to the roster are two new shows, UITM8 and SHOW3. UITM8 will feature eight fashion design students from MARA University of Technology. SHOW3 features new Malaysian labels. There will also be three guest designers from Indonesia, Thailand and Philippines showing at KLFW.
