Highlights of the fashion show:

Valentino’s latest collection created one-of-a-kind garments that danced between the modern – with poems appliquéd onto dresses in “pure elemental colours” – and the historical.

Kenzo’s Spring/Summer collection reinterpreted the extremely creative era to celebrate the independent woman born in the sixties.

McQ by Alexander McQueen showcased a combination of British street culture with the spare elegance of the aesthete creating a collection that fused youthful playfulness with technological rigour and precision.

M Missoni highlighted fresh and colourful, cool and chic designs synonymous with distinction and unique in style, and introduced a lively and colourful mood inspired by the “Jamaican Way of Living”.

Sergio Rossi’s collection was an aesthetic reflection on beauty, understood as a set of simple and immediate expressions which revealed, on closer vision, infinite details.

Khoon Hooi has incorporated spring elements such as the hummingbird, flowers and the pastel colours of the sky into the collection. Bright and cheerful, the collection emotes certain darkness that evokes a sense of sophistication.

iKarrtini encapsulated what truly is Malaysia by marrying the traditional with the contemporary.

Mita Tam Style Studio featured light patterns as well as colourful floral dresses for both casual and formal occasions.
