Take a look back at what happened at Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week last week

The mini-mes

On day four of KLFW, Hunny Madu, who was the host of the night performed her new song, TYVM, with a special guest by her side—daughter Eva Medina. Dancing along while her mother performed, the six-year-old even incorporated some cartwheels in between—talk about being the perfect "hype girl". Aside from that, also making her first KLFW debut? Eight-month-old Jeanelle Nika Mandagie. Designer Jovian Mandagie carried his baby while he took his bow, before posing for a sweet family photo together—cue the awws.






Spotted on the FROW: Neelofa  

Neelofa's style needs no introduction. As one of the few local celebrities who are not afraid to experiment when it comes to fashion, she made her appearances at KLFW in head-turning ensembles that warrant a double take. From a heavily layered Max Mara get-up to a colourful printed outfit by Dior, and a striking red Gucci ensemble (complete with oh-so-cool sunglasses, no less), the star definitely nailed her looks. Comment below with your favourite!


Melium's star-studded catwalk

It's not a fashion week without some star power, but instead of the FROW, these A-listers took a turn on the runway instead. Celebrities such as Scha Alyahya, Awal Ashaari, Neelofa, Siti Saleha and Idris Khan walked the runway dressed in brands such as Lanvin, Tod's and Max Mara under the Melium Group, before Farah Khan presented her latest collection. Friends of Melium, Maria Mogsolova of FashionTV also made an appearance on the runway.




Fazbulous by Fazura

Unlike previous years, actress Nur Fazura got to present her latest Fazbulous collection in a solo slot. From shimmering pyjama sets to a one-shoulder dress, her line was a mixture of looks and styles that may not necessarily be the most cohesive, but arguably the highlight of her show, is her dramatic finale, where models drop to the ground before she strutted down the runway—a striking resemblance to Dries Van Noten's Spring/Summer 2015 show. In an interview with The Star 2, Fazura admitted that while she was inspired by the Belgian designer, the finale also represents how she reacts to haters.




Innai Red's Stardust fantasy

What better way to close a five-day long event than with a Studio 54-inspired collection? Named the Stardust, Innai Red is all about paying homage to the heyday of the '70s—think holographic pantsuits, embellished bell bottoms, and flowy gowns with pussy-bows. Models channelled their inner Bianca Jagger and Jerry Hall on the catwalk, but what we love more, is its campaign video.
