MiFW 2010 - Bumiputera Designers Association Gala

By 12:26 , , , , , , , , , ,

The BDA Gala (Bumiputera Designers Association) @ Malaysia International Fashion Week, just keeps getting better every year. Just when I thought last year's showcase was brilliant, this year's was super fantastic!!

I was there to cheer on Nik Erwan Roseli! Much lurv!! But was a bit disappointed when I found out that Amir Luqman wasn't part of the BDA Gala this year.

This year's Gala had a 90's celebrity for its theme. The big names of the 90's were muses for the designers. They're still  looking good!

Host for the evening - Dino

Bon Zainal
Dubbed the Debonair Designer in mens' suits, he also introduced a few pieces of womens' suits that evening. The cut and silhouette of each piece was sophisticated and classic.

Hattan opened for Bon Zainal

Womens' suit never looked so sexy!

Was there a reason for the bare torso? :P

Amir Luqman for Bon Zainal!!
According to AL, BZ's suits are the only mens' suits he wears. And never leave home without the 6 inch bling heels! Super stylish!
