MIFA 2009 - Moving Fashion Forward

By 20:47

MIFA (Malaysian International Fashion Alliance) hosted its 7th instalment of the Malaysia International Fashion Week 2009 (M-IFW 09) at Pavilion between 4-8 November. On the final day I attended a BDA (Bumiputra Designers Association) Fashion Show. It was a glitzy star-studded event. I caught sight of the likes of Camelia, Syafinaz, Noryn Aziz, Nora Danish, Anita Sarawak, Amber Chia, Chef Wan (No he wasn't modelling) to name a few.  

Headlining the show were Tom Abang Saufi, Radzuan Radziwill, Kapas Couture, Syaiful Baharim, Embun, as well as talented young designers, Nik Erwan Roseli, Amir Luqman, Hatta Dolmatt, Azura Couture, Hazree Wahid, Faizell Azraf, Khairi Sufi, Nazreen Idris and Zery Zamry.

Habib Jewels provided the gorgeous blings for the night from its ‘Architechural Collection’.

The collections showcased by the talented up and coming young designers gives the local fashion industry a boost with their vibrant, fresh ideas and sometimes garish outfits. Though looking at the amount of celebrities used by the designers to model their collection it would have been best themed, 'Battle of the Celebrity Muses'.

There were performances by Syafinaz, Noryn Aziz belting out an incredible jazzy number and Hattan. Syafinaz did a soprano piece which sealed her title as Malaysia's Super Soprano. It was the first time I heard Noryn Aziz sing, wonderful jazz voice. Hattan performed his classic ‘Sekuntum Mawar Merah’ which still sounds great.

Enough of my ramblings, it’s a fashion show, so here are some pictures I managed to take after sinfully indulging in some hors d 'œuvre.

Oh look there’s me! Sexy yet classy dress courtesy of a kind-hearted friend. ;p

Anita Sarawak livened up the atmosphere with her presence. It was one of the more exciting walks of the night.

Hazwani Osman had a dress that I thought was rather beautiful. Captivated by it I didn't manage to get a picture of the front view. The side will have to do.

Kapas couture had a black & white theme to its collection. Its also included a special celebrity model.

Khairi Sufi is a signature name that depicts glamour, elegance and sophistication.

I rather fancied Zery Zamry's bridal themed collection. The floral headgear doned by the models were too pretty to ignore.

After the evening ended I went around taking more pictures. I wasn't the only one fussing about mind you, so were a whole lot of people. Cam whoring! Never thought I'd use the phrase. Lol!

In total I took about 380 pictures. Thats a record for me at a single event. Of course it's not all of me, that would be beyond being self-obsessed, self-absorbed and everything else. I might put up more pics when I have the time.

I personally feel that this year's BDA Fashion Show was more exciting as compared to last year's. Not to mention I was greedily yet happily munching away the earlier part of the evening. Yummy!
