Tourism Malaysia presents: The Glass Slipper Gala

Kuala Lumpur, 6th April 2011.

Last night, the Ministry of Tourism, Malaysia presented “The Glass Slipper Gala” in conjunction with the International Shoe Festival that will be officially launched this coming weekend. The evening fashion show was tailored to the fairytale story of “Cinderella… and her supposedly Ugly Stepsisters”.

Although Malaysia might not be the fashion capital of the world (or close to it), we can be proud of our own designers that are bold, creative and dare to be different. I salute all the designers for their tremendous effort and their unique imagination!

More photos from the other half of the gala will be updated later. I am sure you would want to know what happened to Cinderella! 🙂

As expected Cinderella stepsisters were, well UGLY and unfashionable. It wouldn't be Cinderella story if it was otherwise, right?

And you can fill in the blank now......

Then her stepmother appeared and she was banished to the kitchen to do her chores.....

And her stepmother paraded up and down the runway proclaiming and boasting her shoe size which was 13. And she looked like a discarded kitchen table that was rejected during the production process.

The first fashion lineup was by Jendela KL.

Design #3 from Jovian Mandagie. This design was so over the top that it created a stir in the hall. In term of creativity I would give it 100 points. In term of practicality, it might not score any points but its a brave try. I couldn't imagine Malaysian women wearing this contraption that resembles a certain part of the male anatomy. But it would come in handy during raining season when the giant condom would have protected the wearer from getting really wet and messy! 🙂

 

Jovian and his troops..... I salute you... for the brave creations!
