KLFW RTW 2014 Featuring Farah Khan

Farah-Khan-20

KLFW RTW 2014 featuring the latest collection from Farah Khan

21st June 2014

Farah Khan Fashion Show is always attended by the well-heeled and well-dressed crowds, anywhere around the world. So it is only natural to see the who’s who on the list of their invited guests last night. Unfortunately she couldn’t make it to her own fashion show last night. However she never disappoints with her latest collection. I always like how she starts off her show with environmental or personal messages on the tees of her models. Then the show starts proper…… and the crowds were blown away by her super fast-paced fashion catwalks that are not only beautiful but are distinctively Farah Khan! Kudos to another job well done.

This has got to be the weirdest dark series fashion show at Kuala Lumpur Fashion Show RTW 2014. Not only does the label feature hooded masked men, they are also the one and only brand that equipped their models with spiked ninja styled rubber boots coupled with the black lacy gloves. Cool, really cool!

I do not have much information regarding this brand but suffice to say, if you are a fan of this genre of fashion, you would have known that their shop is located at Sungei Wang Plaza. You could find more information about them at http://www.facebook.com/InFLUENCEMY

In 2010 Joe Chia graduated from Raffles Design Institute, and with the vision of seeing his designs being worn by people on the streets, his eponymous label – JOE CHIA RTW was launched in 2012. JOE CHIA embodies classic, timeless and experimental pieces to be worn for years. Therefore, instead of following trends and the seasons, collections are launched in a sequence of chapters whereby each piece in every chapter narrates its individual story.

The label’s clothing language is the celebration of the designer’s innate Malaysian heritage. The label has increased a distinctive attention for details and functional qualities, whilst maintaining a strong connection to urban roots. “The Silent Drama,” described Joe.

Dockers recently showcased its full range of Fall/Winter 2013 Collection, at the Chandan Gallery in Publika Shopping Gallery. The event also showcased the brands latest Alpha Khaki designs, engineered for the Alpha men. If you think you are the go-getter sort of men and your female friends always refer to you as the Alpha man….. you should be heading to Dockers fashion gallery as soon as you possibly could…. they have the sort of clothing especially designed for man like you. Yes, you, the Alpha man…… 

Well, if you don’t think you belong to this category of men….. well you could always try “Dorkers”….. available exclusively from Petaling Street…….

But seriously, Dockers is always associated with man’s pants, as far as I am concerned…. I have been wearing this brand ever since I was studying in the USA, many many moons ago. And I am still wearing them to this day. I don’t think you need any introduction to this brand and I will spare you the bore and show you some photos instead. 🙂
