The worlds of luxury fashion and streetwear are increasingly intertwined. Malaysia, for one, is not being left out as the trend sweeps across the globe.

Sneakerlah, a local sneakers, streetwear and lifestyle convention, attracted a total of 17,000 visitors in 2015. The annual event now gets an average of 33,000 people coming in over a two-day weekend.

Co-founder Bryan Chin says it is safe to claim that streetwear is becoming a big thing here. He is seeing more people wearing luxury sneakers attending Sneakerlah. Balenciaga or Gucci sneakers, for instance.
