Kuala Lumpur, 16th March 2013

The Formula 1 Grand Prix returns to Malaysia this year, and with it, comes the exciting Grand Prix Sale which takes place from 16th March to 7th April, sweeping the nation with 23 days of glorious discounts and promotions.

The sale, which is supported by the Bukit Bintang-KLCC Tourism Association, was launched by Tourism Minister Dato’ Sri Dr. Ng Yen Yen at the Bukit Bintang entrance of Pavilion KL.

This was followed by a fashion show by models and production company Andrewmodels.

These sale campaigns and events are part of the Tourism Ministry and Tourism Malaysia’s initiatives of turning Malaysia into a leading international shopping destination, which has received international recognition. Last year, Kuala Lumpur ranked second best shopping city in the Asia Pacific according to the latest Globe Shopper Index, while CNN report listed Kuala Lumpur as the best shopping destination in the world.

Last year, Malaysia received 25.03 million tourists, with tourist receipts amounting to RM60.6 billion. Shopping contributed to 30.7% of the total tourist revenue, with a grand total of RM18.56 billion.

There’s no denying that tourism played an important part in the economic development of Malaysia. I just hope the government will be more proactive in improving the few sore problems that affected KL in particular – taxi service, cleanliness, snatch thieves and transportation issue in general.

Starhill Gallery Fashion Week S/S 2013

This is the time of the year again when all the respectable shopping malls (or mall wanabe) will throw an elaborate party to showcase their tenant’s new fashion collections for the year. This year Starhill Gallery has become the first of the many shopping malls to do so with much fanfare.

The whole Indulge floor was cordoned off by means of switching the operating direction to only one way  – to exit only. Therefore guests were forced to either use the lifts or the only designated escalator near the customer service counter to enter the beautifully decorated venue. I find it a hassle though but it’s a refreshing change from the mundane.

The guests were feted to free flowing drinks and finger food and there is even a studio photography set up by Leica for those who would like to be a model for the day. Overall it was a successful opening party for the mall’s S/S 2013 Fashionweek. The brands that were feature during the fashion showcase include Kenzo, M Missoni, Parosh, Red Valentino, Khoon Hooi, Klutched, McQ Alexander McQueen and Valentino.

Uluwatu Handmade Balinese Lace is from the the beautiful island of Bali.

Balinese children learn the skills to produce the finest Uluwatu lace from their parents, learning the techniques from a young age.

Binwani’s High Fashion at Affordable Prices @ the Curve

Fancy wearing a breathtaking and regal dress that will make you feel like a million dollar babe and becoming a ‘cam-whore’ at the same time? Then think no further….. just head down to Binwani’s! You surely won’t be disappointed.

Binwani’s: High Fashion at an affordable prices? Usually those words don’t go together very well. Oh well, you have to check out their store to confirm their store’s tag line! But one thing is for sure, their made to measure and ready to wear clothing lines are simply top of the line stuff. Don’t believe me, just take a look at their women’s collection featured at the Curve’s Run-A-Way Fashion Show yesterday. The models were beautiful but the flowing dresses, especially those lace-themed ones really caught my eyes….. their design were fabulous, elegant and simply breathtaking. I don’t know about the pricing but really, is there a price for looking elegant and beautiful? Some women would give an arm and a leg just to look half (or maybe three quarter) of what’s on offer. Seriously!
