Bent, Zuusaha and Taguwaruwa: Ready-to-wear collections
Bent’s RTW collection was inspired by Chinese traditional wear – but with a twist. The outfits contained Oriental elements in the designs, but with contemporary and edgy silhouettes, making the entire collection a refreshing take on traditional wear.
A plethora of colours burst on the runway, courtesy of Zuusaha. Known for her unique personas, the designer didn’t shy away from adding eccentric touches to her creations. Each outfit was completely different – showcasing her remarkable range.
Modern day streetwear meets military-esque fashion – this best describes Taguwaruwa’s 2022 RTW collection. Dark and edgy, the brand elevated street style to a whole new level. The show offered a surprise in the form of a performance by none other than Masdo, Malaysia’s most recognized rock band.
