5 Designers We're Excited To Catch This KLFW2017

Our eyes are ready!

Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week is hot and happening. Now on its fifth year, the gathering of fashion savants and designers extraordinaire is bigger than ever. There are lots of things to expect from the event, but we’re particularly piqued by these people. Check out whom we’re keeping an eye on this week.

Farah Khan

Khan’s eponymous label is turning 10 this year, and we’re excited to see what she has in store for us. The designer, who is also the founder and president of Malaysia’s leading luxury retailer, The Melium Group, is known for her intricate beadwork. Her designs marry her love for embellishment and her contemporary silhouettes.

AirAsia Runway Ready Designer Search Finalists

We can’t just pick one from the roster of young blood vying for the grand prize at AirAsia Runway Ready Designer Search. The competitors hailing from all over the ASEAN region all have unique styles and visions we’re so excited to see.


For FIZIWOO designers Mohd Hafizi Radzi Woo and Izree Kai Haffiz, less is more. Their brand is known for their sleek, feminine designs. They were all about ruffles and pleats last season, so we’re curious about what they will bring to the runway now that Fall/Winter is coming.

Kit Woo

Gone are the days when Kit Woo was an assistant designer for American brand Public School NYC. A year after he decided to pack his bags and return to his hometown, and we’re eager to see how the change in atmosphere and lifestyle has affected his fashion sense.

Thavia By Tengku

Tengku Chanela Jamida’s Thavia is all about a fresh take on basics and classics. With a #refinedchic woman as her constant muse, we’re curious to see how her new garments will embody her style philosophy.
