- Kuala Lumpur, 20 July 2017 -- World Fashion Week® ASIA 2017 is set to be officially hosted by the City of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, as the World Fashion Week® Malaysia 2017, from the 7th to 10th of September 2017. The international event will take place at the Palace of the Golden Horses in Kuala Lumpur, welcoming fashion designers and industry representatives from all over the world , with the graced and honorary presence of His Royal Highness Sultan of Selangor YM Tengku Permaisuri Selangor and Her Royal Highness the Queen of Selangor Tengku Permaisuri Norashikin Abdul Rahman, in addition to Ambassadors, Ministers and International Celebrities.
THERE is unlimited potential in Islamic fashion and lots of opportunities to be explored.
One event which Malaysian designers should not miss is World Fashion Week (WFW) 2017, which will be held in Paris.
WFW was first introduced in 2010 in Shanghai, China with five designers from five continents.
The annual event has come a long way since and is expected to attract more than 110 countries from five continents this time around.
“Fashion forward Malaysian designers should make their mark in the international market and seize this opportunity to take part in this event.
“I recommend that those who are keen to venture beyond the shores of Malaysia to explore this platform,” said WFW chairman and founder Paco De Jaimes at the launch.
He said the demand for Islamic clothing was on the rise.
“It’s amazing to see how Islamic fashion has evolved here, with all the colourful and stylish headgears going with the modest and stylish Islamic attire.
“This is enough to show how fashion-conscious Malaysians are,” said De Jaimes after the official appointment of Puan Sri Shariffa Sabrina Syed Akil as WFW ambassador for Environmental Responsibility at Saloma Bistro@Matic in Kuala Lumpur.
Adriana Lima is gearing up to make her debut as a television host. The Victoria's Secret model has signed on to present a new beauty competition show called American Beauty Star, which is set to air on U.S. channel Lifetime.
American Beauty Star will see 12 celebrity stylists and salon professionals compete in various challenges, to be judged by former Vogue beauty director Sarah Brown. Adriana, 35, confirmed the news on her Instagram account on Thursday night, posting a picture of herself with Beyonce's favoured make-up artist Sir John.
World Fashion Week® and Bogota Fashion Week, a business platform of the Bogota Chamber of Commerce, collaborated to promote the expansion of Colombian fashion- especially in Latin America. The two aimed to promote international trade relations within the framework of the most recent edition of Bogota Fashion Week®.
In order to create opportunities for international cooperations that are mutually beneficial in terms of brand positioning for Colombian and Latin American designers, commercial platforms combined synergies and efforts to implement a contest.
Production begins in Los Angeles this June on 10 hour long episodes. The series brings together 12 celebrity stylists and salon professionals to compete in a series of challenges, from creating high-end editorial looks to the most current glam creations for red carpets and runway shows. At the end of the season, only one contestant will be named American Beauty Star.
Celebrity stylist Sir John will mentor the contestants while former longtime Vogue Beauty director Sarah Brown will serve as a judge, alongside celebrity guests and beauty industry influencers.
There's genetically blessed, and then there's Adriana Lima. That impossibly perfect skin, those jet-black waves, the brows we'd kill for — you don't get to be Forbes' second-highest paid model and reach legendary Victoria's Secret Angel status for nothing, after all. But for the most part, the supermodel has stayed out of the spotlight — until now. Lima is tacking on yet another line to her resumé and it's going to be good.
According to Hollywood Reporter, her new venture comes in the form of a Lifetime beauty competition series called American Beauty Star, on which Lima will host alongside a panel of judges, including Beyoncé's makeup artist Sir John and former Vogue beauty director Sarah Brown. In 10 one-hour episodes, 12 celebrity stylists and salon pros will go head to head, creating different looks for red carpet challenges and editorial shoots until the list dwindles down to one winner. Unfortunately, the premiere date is still TBD, but filming starts next month.
Humanity is a celebration of ethical beliefs, a deep desire towards progression and a movement on healing bruises. It is the foundation towards common causes to uphold rights, not just for the people, but as a protection of life of animals as well. Whether we speak about showstoppers ramping in New York or Navi Mumbai, the nascent voice for “stop killing animals for fashion” is making the need-of-the-hour vibrations.
