Returning to Pavilion, Bukit Bintang is the 2017 edition of KL FASHION WEEK ‘Ready-To-Wear’. Held from the 16th thru the 20th of August, KLFW RTW ’17 presented close to 150 designers including 6 talented designers from outside of Malaysia, courtesy of Air Asia. Here is our list of 5 designers who owned the runway at KL Fashion Week 2017:
#5 Emelda Rose
Emelda Rose‘s designs are inspired by the luxurious and glitz of color on the sequin embroidered-based textile. It reflects the glamorous world of entertainment and showbiz throughout the world.
#4 Jimmy Lim
Each season, Jimmy Lim‘s use of fine fabrics, prints and unique cuts encourages the wearer to feel effortlessly chic, whilst still shinning through with her own personal style.
#3 Yousef Akbar
We previously featured Yousef Akbar, who rose to acclaim for his unique dresses worn by Chrissy Teigen. This time, Yousef is recognised as one of the chosen 6 regional designers invited to show at KLFW RTW ’17 courtesy of Air Asia.

#2 Hayden Koh
2017 marks the third year Hayden Koh has shown at KLFW. The talented graduate from the prestigious Malaysia Institute of Arts and SML Fashion Academy in Kuala Lumpur, Hayden will undoubtedly be a highlight at any fashion week across the region.
#1 Takuya Morikawa – TAAKK
TAAKK was certainly the head-turner at this year’s KLFW RTW, with Takuya’s model-mannequins bringing to “live” TAAKK’s colourful “resort-inspired” collection. Takuya Morikawa had previously spent seven years at Issey Miyake before starting up TAAKK, and his collections are stocked online on reknown fashion online stores such as Farfetch.com.
