I'm not going to pretend that I know much about the collection (proper press kits seemly to fleet away from my possession these days). But according to my friend, the collection generally looks good and she would wear most of the lacy dresses in sober midnight blue and neutral hues herself. The Malaysian fashion crowd are already familiar with Rizalman's design and commercial prowess all these years, and judging from the extraordinary response from Rizalman's Instagram account is good enough to prove just that - customers inquire about sold-out stocks at almost every line of his ig comment section...
The presentation itself is a dramatic affair, starting with a beautifully regal video clip with models clad in his latest offerings, followed by the runway show - spotlight directed towards porcelain doll-esque models in bob haircut is borderline theatrical. The overall feel was augmented by the background music resembling the ones we see in wartime movies. Apologies for the rather rubs photos but blame it all on Awal Ashaari's head which blocks most of the views ;)
Few familiar faces at the show who are prominent persons in local fashion industry.
