Fashion Diary : Final Day of KLFW 2013


It’s the final day of The New Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week RTW 2013.

I’m a bit sad that it ended. I had so much fun throughout the whole fashion week. It was really great to kinda make a come back in the scene and meet up with all my friends from the fashion scene, the designers, writers, media, organizers, bloggers, fashionistas, photographers, models and every new people I just made friends with. It was refreshing!

KLFW 2013 was indeed a great breathe of fresh fashion air!

I am so proud to see that Andrew Tan; the head of Andrews Models and also the mastermind and organizer of KLFW, has finally had his dream came true, and this is just the beginning of something much bigger and greater. I know that he is definitely brewing bigger ideas for the next one. I can feel it. And I look forward to it.

Kudos to his team too, whom I’m glad to know; Ira Roslan, Nadia, Afiq and the rest. I’ve been in your shoes before, doing so much of multitasking here and there, the works, to pull off organizing fashion week, and I’m sure you guys feel a great relief and perhaps a tad sad that KLFW 2013 ended. Keep up the good job guys!

On the merits of KLFW 2013, from all the chats I had with some friends, I would conclude KLFW 2013 as a very successful event. It was a great platform for the veterans and the fresh flesh of fashion designers to showcase the real deal of being a successful designers, which is through the Prêt-à-Porter (Ready-To-Wear) line. This is when we know the designers are in it for the real deal of fashion business to grow bigger and better, rather than just concentrate on Haute Couture or just Made-to-Measure pieces only. Yes, it is great that they can design beautiful couture pieces to showcase the extension of their creativity and all but Ready-To-Wear is the way to go farther and bigger and The New Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week RTW 2013 was the perfect platform for the turning point of Malaysian fashion scene to take RTW seriously to the next level. Let’s get the world fashion globe knows about this. Let them all know that Malaysia is finally ready for the big games in fashion.

On the note of going global on the news of KLFW 2013, I did notice that they were none or not many international fashion buyers, delegates and media attending the shows. I was hoping to see Fashion TV during the week too. Perhaps it is the very first KLFW 2013 RTW and they are on their baby steps. That’s understandable, but I do hope to see more of them for the next fashion week and shows to come because the global world need to know of our positive progress in the fashion scene. It is imperative.

To Andrew and his team, a huge applause on the efforts and hard work in making The New Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week RTW 2013 a successful event and I wish you all best for the coming ones. I can’t wait to witness greatness again!

No worries. I will post all that I promised as soon as possible OK! I want to give good reviews and write up on KLFW instead of just posting blindly. So thank you so much for your patience. (:

Night Outfit:

For the night shows, I figured why not I use this shiny, reflective, mermaid-ish skirt i got from H&M, and so I did. Hehe. I wore the same top from the day but I changed to my fave leather jacket and put on some bling from Anna Dello Russo emerald earrings and silver bangles and bracelets. Wallah!

Fashion Diary : Day 4 at KLFW 2013


The fourth day of KLFW’13 was a bit funny to me, on a personal level.

I arrived a tad late but just in time for the runway. Oops.. And the worst thing that could happen to a blogger is when she realized that her camera was without it’s battery!!! Oh f*ckarama! I was in such a rush that I totally forgot to take the battery from the charger deck before i hit the road to KLFW. Aaarrghhhh…! Silly me. Nevertheless, this didn’t dampened my spirit to get the details of the runway. I still have my trusted Samsung Note 2 and the camera is good enough to do the job. Phewww.

The first show was Menswear collections by Bon Zainal, Fairuz Ramdan, Joe Chia and Roslan Wilkinson. Fairuz Ramdan made a pretty interesting twist in his collection. Can you relate menswear and teddy bears? Well, more details on The F Words Fashion Feed on his collection soon.

Right after the show ended, I rushed off home to get the battery. Hurray!

Next show I looked forward to was the show by one of the best and most talented local designers I’m honored to know and befriended; Khoon Hooi. One should never miss a show by Khoon Hooi, or he/she will miss out a lot! Stay tuned as I’ll update you more of his collection and details soon.

The final show of the day was by Farah Khan. As always, Farah Khan will have her own team navigated the whole show. From guests registration to floor management to curating the show. Every guest were well taken care of. As for the show, it was fab, fab, fabulous. Thumbs up!

Here are some photos of the day to tease you on my next few posts of the runway shows.

On the day, I decided to go for preppy/glam look. I wore my fave white sleeveless shirt I got from flea market for a steal, my camouflage skirt and i put on my chunky bling necklace to give contrast on the preppy shirt. By this day, as you can see I wore the same boots since my first day. I decided that the boots were my official KLFW boots because it was super comfy and fierce at the same time. Hehee.

As for the vest, it’s from Pearly Wong. It is a multi-functional vest that can be worn in many ways and I love anything multi-functional as I always recycle my outfits in different style. Here are some of the photos on how the vest look like.

Multi-functional Vest: Pearly Wong. Top: flea market. Skirt: The Extra Piece. Boots: Zara. Clutch: flea market. Necklace: Anna Dello Russo from H&M. Bracelet: Lovisa.

Here, you can see how it can be worn like a vest when it is unbuttoned (right). And when it is buttoned up, it looks like a pull over dress (left).

Left: I buttoned up the side seam. Centre: How the back looks like. Right: I let the seam open.

Fashion Diary : Day 2 at KLFW 2013


Day 2 at KLFW 2013 was all in all FUN & FABULOUS!

Started the day with 12.30pm show by four designers: For All by Villiam Ooi, Mimpikita, When Our Eyes Met and Zero To Ten. This time, I wasn’t only there to see the show but to help out Min (Yasmin Ramli), the designer of When Our Eyes Met, with the guest arrangements. The show was great! Will post up the fashion feed soon.

The main highlight of Day 2 was definitely the show by Jonathan Liang.  The show was nothing short of spectacular. It was a full house filled with fashionable socialites, celebrities, fashionistas, designers and more. All I saw was gorgeous, fabulous fashion people gathered for the show and made it all hyped up. I mean..it’s Jonathan Liang right?

When the show ended, that’s when the real party began! Hahaa! This is when all the fashion people round up not just to have a chat or two but to get crazier than we already are and partayyy!

As for my outfit, I decided to go all white with a dash of neon yellow peeking through my shirt, a leather jacket and some bling on my ears and arm. Tres Chic!

Fashion Diary : First Day of KLFW 2013.


The first day of KLFW 2013 has just ended. There were 5 shows for the day showcasing 13 designers. I attended all shows and captured every single outfit and the detailing too. I can’t wait to share it with you.

It has also been a super tiring day for me and I should hit the sack soon to get ready for the second day. Hence, I will not be posting the fashion feed for today’s show yet. But I promise you I will do so soonest.

The shows were spectacular, though it started a bit late. Oh well..it’s the Malaysian fashion scene. Nuff said. Nonetheless, I’d say everything else was fabulous and amazing. The shows. The fashion people. Everyone made that little effort to look fierce and fantastic. And it is only the first day!


With the fab and fierce fashion family: Minluna, Jaja Anuar, Aizat Aidid (Glam), Jacky Hussein (Cosmopolitan), Yana Baharuddin (EH!), Vee (InTrend)


With my fashion boys: Kesh Sandhu, Syomir Izwa and Jason Yap.

My outfit of the day I decided to use my utilitarian army jacket again with a full black sequinned dress, black clutch and my black boots with Anna dello Russo emerald earrings. I purposely played the contrasting elements of the glam up and utilitarian looks in one.

Jacket: from a friend. Sequinned dress: Zara. Boots: Zara. Clutch bag: flea market. Earrings: Anna Dello Russo from H&M. Bracelets: Lovisa and Eight.

Fashion Style : Flying off in Fierce Utilitarian Chic

Utilitarian Chic 01Utilitarian Chic 02Utilitarian Chic 03Utilitarian Chic 04c

This is the day I fly off to Kota Kinabalu (KK), Sabah. To chill. To breathe.

I made a little extra effort this time and chose to rock this look to travel. Fierce Utilitarian Chic look was what I aimed for.

I don’t usually travel in shorts except if I’m flying to an island, but KL is extremely hot and humid. I figured that the aircraft would be like a freezer as it always is, so I pulled up the mesh leggings (yes, it’s leggings, not stockings) with my basic white top and the brown boots I got at a steal price! The army jacket is actually for male. A real army jacket. But it was the perfect finish to my Utilitarian Chic.


Top: H&M. Shorts: Cotton On. Belt: Pull & Bear. Mesh Leggings: flea market. Boots: River Island. Jacket: from a friend. Handbag: Tod’s. Sunglasses: Rack by Kila Fairy. Bracelet & Skull Ring: Lovisa.  Leopard Ring: House of Eight. Watch: Casio Databank Calculator
