Yes, we were so excited and happy that our dear long-time-friend cum award-winning super cool fashion designer Jimmy Lim extended an invitation to us so much earlier before the local Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week Ready To Wear 2014 (KLFW2014) event kick started recently at Pavilion KL **Muah and big hugs** Needless to say, we were counting down to the days and hours, literally *_^
The annual happening event organized by AndrewsModels has been much anticipated by both the participating fashion designers, media as well as sponsors alike and fashion enthusiasts. We were eagerly waiting to see what new fashion trends or looks that our local designers were set to amuse and impress us with. Well, from what we have seen, those shows that we were invited to, our local designers have more than meets the eyes. We shall share with you as we go along, in the weeks to come!
Jimmy has always been a very progressive and forward kind of a fashion designer, drawing tremendously broad and wide experience from his years staying and running his 15-year-long brand in New Zealand (and now back in Malaysia), he never fail to surprise his fans with fresh new looks and ideas. For his latest autumn/winter 2014/15 collection called EXPOSED, the minute the songs of Japanese artist Shikuza Kudo hit the air, our heart was all pumped up and it was so refreshingly fun and funky. Models walked down the runway adorned in power-dressing pieces that can easily be mixed and matched, we feel, giving a sense of a strong woman yet love no-fuss type of dressing (but with that extra touch of luxe and glamour!).
Designs are cut relaxed and lean for the season, with some masculine proportions in pieces like shirts and jackets, contrasting with more feminine pieces of slender dresses and skirts. His clever use and blend of modern luxe fabric such as jacquard, holographic 3D sequins, cane tweed with comfortable natural fabrications of silk, cotton and linen makes this line such a breeze to wear! And I guess you would have known by now, what's Jimmy's favorite color *_^ Very uniquely Jimmy, we feel.
Since we were seated a tad far away, we could not get some real good shots of the collection, all runway pictures via Jimmy Lim's Facebook here. If you are keen to get to know more of our designer friend, you can also read about our FACES segment featuring him previously here. For more lovely designs from this absolutely fabulous designer, do check out his website here. Jimmy Lim label is available at Parkamaya Fahrenheit88 and A.L.I.E.N boutique over at Publika KL.
Jimmy, my friend, you did it again! Yay, never fail to entertain and impress, with your work. Thanks for the invites, we had a blast at your show! I could not stop myself from moving my hips to your Japanese song! (In my seat only-lah, haha) Such great fun. See you again soon *_^
Stay tuned for our next KLFW2014 updates soon. Stay fashionable and chic, always!
