I hope that I'm using Dunia Fashyon as a platform to introduce new local designers, starting with Chiyo. As Syawal is just around the corner, I think it's the perfect time to talk about what will men wear this Eid Mubarak...
You probably have read/heard about Beo Menswear being bashed on Twitter or Instagram by now. But truth be told, I kinda like the ballsy attempt.
But please, please spare the homophobic remarks, people. And for goodness sake if you don't have anything good to say, than don't say anything at all. (It is the holy month of Ramadan, after all)...
Semi-sheer top, obviously not for the faint hearted
The bestselling zippered number
Nifty sampin-tying trick
The controversial piece - 'kurta' from lightweight chiffon-y fabric, in camo prints
Another experimental piece - the red lace
The batik hybrid - heard a few comments about it 'not respecting culture and tradition'. Seriously?
Just like Isabel Lam's story of Chiyo, Fahad's one of the fledgling names who work by himself from the design process, marketing and straight to running the business. At the end of the day, this maiden collection probably caters to a certain niche in the market.
P/S: From the looks of the Instagram comments, all is well with the label. Lots of positive comments and orders seemingly pouring in, so I guess that proves something, no?
