Dress To The Nines With These Festive Collections | Clozette
The Hari Raya Puasa festive season is coming. Apart from celebrating with friends and family, there’s one more thing that comes to mind when the occasion approaches: dressing up for the festivities. If you’ve been stressing out about looking put-together but don’t know where to start, ZALORA has your back.

Last week, the premiere online shopping destination in Asia launched their festive collections during a garden party at the Botanico at The Garage, Singapore Botanic Gardens.



The collections are all well-designed, intricately embellished and definitely festive — exactly what you need. Looking for inspiration? Here’s a peek at what the collections offer.

Zalia



Inspired by the theme of an enchanted forest, Zalia’s 2017 Festive Collection features embellishments that closely mimic the appearance of ferns, vines, wild flowers and other fauna that can be seen in a forest. You’re sure to find something that tickles your fancy with over 160 pieces of clothing to choose from.

Zalia Homme



The men will not go unnoticed. Zalia Homme offers pieces with classic cuts but are embellished with on-trend elements such as embroidered patterns and motif prints.
Lubna



Specialising in modest fashion for the modern woman, Lubna offers an impressive 240-piece collection of baju kurung looks, apt for the festive season and all-year-round.

We’re halfway through April! How crazy is that? We’re well into summer, folks. What are your plans? Heading off to an exotic location or just staying at home for a bit of staycation? Well, our minds are on both, plus the latest and most interesting stuff that’s been happening in the worlds of fashion and beauty.

Let’s all get ourselves a dose of what’s in the news this week.

Michelle is back 

After a year-long hiatus from making YouTube videos and posting on social media, Michelle Phan is back in the game. And she’s bringing her reborn makeup line with her to boot. After acquiring Em Cosmetics from L’Oreal, Phan is re-launching the brand, streamlined with liquid lipsticks and eyeliners. 

Enniful is EIC 

Former W Magazine head Edward Enniful will be at the helm of British Vogue. The announcement comes a couple of months after Alexandra Shulman exited the publication.

Fashion for change

Lebanese-born, Canada-raised Celine Semaan wants to shed a light on the plights of refugees through fashion. Check out her latest amazing collection.

Foundation for sunburn? 

While we’re more inclined to treat a sunburn first before doing anything — slather on that aloe vera gel to soothe the burn — we can’t say we’re not impressed by how well the Too Faced Born This Way foundation performed on a woman who covered her sunburnt skin with it.


Cherry Blossom Float 

McDonald’s Japan is releasing limited edition Sakura McFloat in time for cherry blossom season. Pink and yummy? Colour us piqued!

Society asks us to act a certain way, adhere to a certain kind of standard. Women, especially, get this pressure a lot. But it’s 2017, and who has time for typecasting and asking women to fit into boxes? 

We’ve contributed a lot to society, by way of the arts — from music to movies to fashion — and sciences. The future is female, they say, and we totally agree. We’re also happy to know that there are brands that celebrate not only our womanhood but our individuality and the idea that women cannot be confined into a certain group. We’re mothers, daughters, sisters, painters, executives, doctors — we are diverse. 

With that idea in mind, Melissa’s 2017 Autumn Winter collection showcased at Milan Fashion Week, aptly called Flygrl, aims to celebrate the strides and leaps women have conquered. Inspired by true stories of women who have made a mark in their own ways, the collection is composed of pieces for every type of woman. Curious to see the diversity? Here are just some of our top picks.



These Cowboy shoes are sleek and stylish. The strong edges are the perfect metaphor for the strength women have.



For the edgy and whimsical woman, slip on a pair of Wonder shoes. Turn heads wherever you go with this stunning style.



The perfect embodiment of classic femininity, these Jean Sandal + Jason Wu pairs are must-haves for everyone.
