A very proud moment for the Brunei fashion scene this year, as Kava and Humaira braved the stage and showed their work on the KL Fashion Week Runway.
I’m sure this has taken a large amount of time in preparation for this competition, and to my eyes, they are winners, because they have SHOWN the world that Brunei has talent.
Kava by Siti Nazmah
Kava was expressing her vision of what modest street fashion is like. It takes skill to present an all-black collection, and she mastered it by adding sporty details, as well as mixing prints and textures into the loose-fitting design for an instant seasonal edgy update. And how could I not love the printing work at the back? Talk about #back-gasm!
Humaira's collection went for the deconstructed design, which is a huge trend this season. She also went for a preppy anime-esque vibe with her styling! Obsessed! It is also impressive how she was able to manipulate buttoned shirts and created a draping effect. I would want to take that bodice as part of my staple collection.
Congratulations to all of you, because this is a milestone not just for you, but for our humble abode. Keep on inspiring the youth of our nation with your creativity.
