PETALING JAYA: Shoppers at 1 Utama were greeted by a lively dance performance by local celebrities and models as Melinda Looi’s designs were paraded on the catwalk.  

The Catwalk @ The Mall wrapped up KL Fashion Week 2005 yesterday.  

While models strutted out in Looi’s collection that featured fashion from the 1950s, celebrities including model/actress Carmen Soo and fashion stylist Victor Goh, and models danced and sang on stage to the song Summer Nights from the movie Grease

The event opened with men’s wear creations from Mohd Azizi Hassan, Key Ng and William Liew. 

The designers’ ensemble comprised mostly casual wear in light and bright colours to evoke a relaxed “holiday” mood.  

While Mohd Azizi’s latest contemporary batik collection was filled with pastel colours, Ng’s creations suggested a cyber era with colours, like silver and white, trimmed in blue lining themed “Flying Freely To The Blue Horizon”.
