Innai Red, Rizman Ruzaini and Jonathan Liang at KLFW 2014

Destination dressing was the catchphrase on day three of the Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week. 

From Innai Red’s Iberian-influenced separates to Rizman Ruzaini’s ethnic-inspired floor-length gowns to Jonathan Liang’s space-worthy ensembles, the evening had all the bases — here and in galaxies far, far away — covered.

The girls at Innai Red brought California dreamin’ to the runway with their 1960s-style dresses with strategic cutouts and coton candy-coloured, summery prints for day, and Spanish sizzle in polka-dotted black and white separates and flamenco-style dresses for the night-time.

Rizman’s très romantique designs, meanwhile, transported spectators halfway across the globe to the land of the Mughals. Fit for a princess were the dresses that cleverly combined lace, satin and tulle for a pretty and opulent effect. 

As palace intrigue heated up, so did the clothes, which included power suit-and-harem-pants combos for men and wispy floor-sweeping gowns awash in nude and blush tones for women.

Finally, fashion blasted off in Liang’s show as clothes with futuristic silhouettes, zipper inserts and jagged, asymmetrical hemlines brought to mind a femme fatale who does more than just command starships – she also breaks hearts.

All in all, while the colours were mostly spare – a hint of autumn making its way to our shores – the evening was rife with both diversity and drama. Guests, which included millionaires and glamazons, showed their appreciation by ending the evening with loud applause.
