DAY ONE – PART THREE
Third show of the first day of KLFW 2013 by Allien Gan, Ezzati Amira, Pearly Wong & Tsyahmi.
An emerging self-taught stylist cum designer, Allien Gan emphasized his collection on black and white monotones, enhanced by the body harness in patent leather which I love so much. He made the body harness classier and less dominatrix when married together with his outfits.
A super fresh designer with very high promising future, Ezzati Amira presented very wearable collection. I like how she choreographed her collection. Its like listening to soft sedative music which slowly and surely transcended to more upbeat notes towards rock, which is more like her personality. Her collection started off with pieces of simple silhouettes of stripes in earthy tones towards darker and more daring colours and closing it with two of my fave pieces of Led Zeppelin tops and sequinned skirt and dress that have that 3D colour effects. This is a girl who dares to step up her game plan. I look forward for her next collection!
Top: My fave pieces!
Pearly Wong used black as her main tone and played with different kinds of fabric, material, textures and cuts. Her design lies in the details and also on how she is a strong advocate of sustainable and wearable, multi-functional designs and fashion aesthetics that can last for as long long as it can.
I have also worn one of the multifunctional pieces during the fashion week.You can see here for the details of the design.
Since I knew Syahmi from the 10 Rising Stars of Malaysia International Fashion Week 2009, which he won the title Most Promising Designer of the Year, he was indeed a very promising designer, with exemplary ethics, values and attitude which most of the young ones are lacking. This is a guy with vision and patience when it comes to his goals. I like it that he put so much thoughts, research and time to gain experience and more knowledge before he kicked start his label; Tsyahmi. His short absence in the scene was very well worth it.
Emphasizing on accessible luxury women’s Ready-to-Wear line, his opening Pre-Spring 2014 collection, “Lithium”; showcased fresh looking designs which are very feminine, but modern and edgy through his play of asymmetrical and bias cuts, silhouettes and clever choice of clashing fabrics in fresh colours. On a footnote, I also think the soundtrack “Intro” by The XX was a perfect choice for the introduction of Tsyahmi. This is one designer I look forward to, always.
For this collection, Tsyahmi collaborated with Nelissa Hilman for the shoes designed specially for the collection. From a close up look, the shoes were divine. I’ll share with you on Nelissa’s collaboration soon.
That’s all for now guys. I’ll post more on the KLFW 2013. Sooner or later, I will post it. Thanks again for your patience. 🙂
