4 Things To Do At Pavilion Kuala Lumpur | Clozette
Last month, other than catching Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week Ready To Wear 2016, the Clozette team -- ever the shopaholics -- took the opportunity to explore the shopping paradise that is Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. With more than 550 outlets sprawled over 1.37 million sq ft., Pavilion is where the heart of fashion, beauty and lifestyle lies in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Mark our words: spending one day at the Pavilion is simply not enough. From fashion and beauty to lifestyle and dining, and from international to homegrown brands, the retail selections there in the center of the Bukit Bintang district are aplenty. To get your shopping engines started, here are four things you must do the next time you make a trip down to Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.

--------------------------

Shop at THREE Cosmetics flagship store 



For the beauty lovers, other than heading to the Beauty Hall at Level 7 for your pampering beauty fix, make sure you also check out beauty brand, THREE Cosmetics’ first ever flagship store outside of Japan! Well known for their organic products, the Japanese beauty brand boasts skincare and makeup offerings that contain over 88% of ingredients derived from essential oils and other plant-based ingredients.

Not sure what to get first? We suggest you start getting acquainted with these bestsellers: the THREE Balancing Cleansing Oil, primers and setting powders.
Get your K-shopping on at SPAO, MIXXO & WHO A.U



Korean fast fashion brands SPAO, MIXXO, and WHO A.U opened their doors last November in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur thanks to Parkson departmental store. With K-drama heartthrob Lee Minho, Super Junior’s Eunhyuk, Leeteuk and Donghae, and Girl’s Generation - TaeTiSeo as their ambassadors, there’s no doubt K-culture fans can count on these three stores for their K-shopping fix.


Get your wallets ready for non-stop luxury shopping action



We say, besides visiting the Couture Pavilion, a dedicated section that houses the world’s finest luxury brands in one place, trendsetters should also drop by multi-label boutique M for cult-favourite brands -- think Elizabeth & James, Opening Ceremony, CMEO Collective, and more.


Ask the Dining Concierge for your dining options

The Clozette team with our AirAsia ‘Stylish Asia Photo Contest’ winners at Ben’s

Tired of all that shopping and in need of a gastronomic refresher? There’s the Gourmet Emporium at Level 1, Dining Loft at Level 7, and the Connection, an al-fresco dining and entertainment street along one side of the mall. We know what you’re thinking… “There’s just too many to choose from!” Easy -- just head to Level 3 where the Dining Concierge is situated at for the best dining recommendations for you.

As for us? We recommend Ben’s for an East-Meets-West dining experience, or wind down at Quivo to end your evening with some bar bites or Mediterranean delights.

It’s that time of the year again where you have to temporarily say goodbye to summer and be sad that your hassle-free days are coming to an end. By this time, most students are back at their respective universities, while others still can’t accept the fact that school is about to start again.

However, going back to school isn’t always boring. Doing things like learning something new, meeting people, and reuniting with your clique are all exciting! Another fun thing about preparing for school is shopping — and who doesn’t love shopping?

If you’re still unsure of what to shop for your back-to-school wardrobe, we’ve listed the 5 most basic essentials to get you through your hectic school days.


Jeans


Skinny jeans, mom jeans, boyfriend jeans, or any type of jeans are one of the most important, if not the most important, pieces of clothing everyone needs in their closet. They’re ready to wear at all times and will always make you look trendy without even trying.


Button Down Shirt


This wear-anywhere piece is very simple yet so elegant, and has always been a closet staple. What's not to love about this top? It doesn’t need much styling, and it can be matched with almost any kind of bottom.



Denim Jacket


Not really a fan of repetitive outfits? Put a denim jacket over it to add a bit of edge and twist; making you look instantly chic. Always a life-saver!



Sneakers


Embrace the rising athleisure trend and flaunt your sexy gym shoes to class. Stick with neutral colors for easier styling (and commuting) and stay comfortable all day long!

They're young, talented, fresh-faced, and will surely change the fashion industry with their innovative collections. Who are we talking about? The men and women selected by AirAsia to represent their respective home countries and battle it out at the Grand Finale of the AirAsia Runway Ready Designer Search 2016 show at KL Fashion Week Ready To Wear, of course!


Last 19th August at Pavilion KL, underneath the bright lights and the pumping music, a slew of models began their descent on the runway, which officially marked the beginning of the fashion competition's finale. It was a highly anticipated spectacle as selected fashion designers from Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore, and Malaysia showcased their best and most intricate work to try and bag the title of “AirAsia’s Most Promising Young Designer 2016”.


And with #TeamClozette sitting front row throughout fashion week, we were able to take notes of our favourite collections – from playful layers to angular silhouettes – and give you an exclusive look at them. So keep reading below to find out our top picks from the AirAsia show!

--------------------------


Sun goddess



Inspired by Melasti, a Balinese purification and ceremony ritual, Indonesia’s Imme Kristiani Firman mixed bright hues with angular cuts and silhouettes to give a new and fresh twist to the term “power dressing”. Are you ready to strut your way into the office wearing this?

Wildflower



As the winner of the AirAsia Runway Ready Designer Search 2016, we can definitely see why as Thai designer Anuruq Jaidee came out with a balanced collection that still managed to emphasise the contrast between the Earthy details and the neutral hues of the clothes very well. 


Candy coated



Amping up the show with striking candy colours and detailed layers is Malaysia’s Ng Yi Xuan. With shift dresses that will catch the eye of anyone who lays eyes on them, paired with coats just as bright, this collection is a dream for all fashionistas.


Ethereal hues



Celebrating the Philippines and the Filipinos, Ron Xavier Santos’s looks boldly speak of his culture with the designs and materials used to create them. Their flowy and airy aspects, combined with contemporary styles, are perfect to wear for the region’s tropical weather. Can you say "street style on fleek"?


Purity



If you think the colour white is boring, you’ll surely take it back as Singapore’s Stefanie Amanda makes the light hue cool again with her clean, figure-hugging and sheer pieces. Plus, her use of smart detailing adds just the right amount of 'pop' to the look to make it stand out even more.
