All The Highlights Of Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week 2019 | Clozette


From the stellar designs coming down the runway to the amazing looks from local fashion enthusiasts and influencers attending the shows, it's safe to say that Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week (KLFW) 2019 started and ended with a bang. Even local passersby stopped to watch the invite-only shows from the floors above the catwalk and were captivated by the spectacular creations of each artist.


Kicking off fashion week is the awesome segment brought by Andrew Tan, the founder of KLFW, to showcase batik as a contemporary element in fashion through the Fashion Forward Batik Initiative.

Utilitarian was the name of the game with this unisex collection. It consists of abstract shapes, patchwork detailing and oversized fits in denim and PVC with the occasional pop of colour.

Easy, breezy, beautiful. We know that's CoverGirl's tagline, but it's also a perfectly apt description for this collection that transported the audience from the runway straight to the blue seas and white sand of the Mediterranean.

That said, get ready for brim hats, oversized-jackets, ankle boots and the likes parading on your Instagram feed. Here are some ideas from the Clozette Community on how to curate your own take on fall-inspired style.

Sometimes the best practical style inspiration is found on the streets and not on the runway. Harsh, but — whether you like it or not — very true especially with the advent of influencers and social media. In some way, attendees have become models themselves. Some are already sporting exclusive pieces that are yet to be released or donning chic accessories from up-and-coming brands. 


At New York Fashion Week 2019,  there's no shortage of savvy street style looks to cop. Ahead, the best ensembles we spotted.


Colour harmony



Colourful ensembles are tricky to put together, but content creator Quigley shows us how it's done. The formula seems to go like this: pick a white top, pair it with something pastel and add eye-catching outerwear. Oh, and don't forget to use a cute sling bag! 


Passion for purple



Laureen Uy is bringing purple back. It's not the easiest shade to style, so we're taking a few notes from this fashion blogger on how to make it work effortlessly. First, a white or black belt is a must; not only will it define your waist, but it can also serve as a nice visual break for your entire ensemble. Then, pair it with a mini bag that's a complementary shade to give a nice, interesting contrast.


Nude-a-palooza



Love a nude style palette? We do, too! It's classy and sophisticated, but if you're not careful about the pieces you pick, things can easily become bland. Take a cue from lifestyle blogger Sheryl and choose to wear different shades of beige to create visual layers and add a black or white piece for balance. 


Floral fan



Florals are a fashion staple of this decade and even though we're about to wrap up the 2010s, we don't think this aesthetic is going away anytime soon. Refresh your love for floral pieces by mixing up the accessories you pair them with. Instead of espadrilles, go for ankle-length boots (or sock boots for our tropical weather) and an edgy fanny pack instead of the usual dainty handbag.
