Can you see those eyebags?!! Waaah!!!!

Top: Pop Look

Blazer: Topshop

Bangle: Hermes

I need to get out of the office more. So, it was refreshing to be invited to MIFA (I don’t really know the difference MIFW and MIFA).

I was not able to attend one of the shows so thank God Asma’ was there so she could share her photos with me.

Sasha Rowena  – love her clutches!

Yes, not a very good photographer this friend of mine. This picture above was the clearest picture. -___-

We went together on another day!

In between shows, we just had to put some food in us. Was exhausted clapping and commenting on the designs, trying to shout over the loud music. Hehe.

Me with Putri Azalea from PU3.

Headband: Sereni & Shentel

Big bow jacket: O’2nd

Jeans: 7 for All Mankind

We had fun seeing all these creative designs. But some were OTT as well that Asma’ and I just couldn’t understand the logic behind some designs. Some were soo weird we can’t imagine anyone in Malaysia wearing them!

I guess fashion is subjective…. an art…. so in some cases, the general public might not appreciate the designer’s creations as much as the designer himself does. Designers have to be prepared for some criticism (this is true for anyone la, even bloggers).

Seriously, I think Malaysia has such great fashion talent. Don’t know how they get such creative ideas!

But I don’t understand why a lot of them want to be so couture-like, creating such complicated pieces only Lady Gaga would wear. Of course people remember them, but I wonder how business is like for them because do people actually buy?! Designing is one thing, but it’s all a business at the end of the day.

If the pieces are not wearable, it makes it difficult for fashion buyers and the general public who want to buy (including ME !!!). I want to wear Malaysian designer clothes instead of always looking at shopbop.com or net-a-porter.com, but we really lack Malaysian ready-to-wear brands! The ones we have now are amazing and I feel so proud wearing the clothes, but they can be counted with just our fingers!

Come on fashion graduates!! Create your own wearable line! And then contact me please, cos I might just be your good customer 🙂
