KUALA LUMPUR ALTA MODA
- in conjunction with A Journey Through Time 2016-
at Starhill Gallery
10.11.12 and 14 November 2016
KL Alta Moda Sdn Bhd is pleased to present Kuala Lumpur Alta Moda 2016, a 3-day fashion event that includes runway shows, installations and exhibitions of bespoke and high-end pret-a-porter collections by renowned international and local designers.
Kuala Lumpur Alta Moda aims to provide the local fashion industry with a serious and professional platform to showcase fashion, while still retaining some form of the social networking aspect of this type of event.
True to the meaning of the word Alta Moda, which means ‘High Fashion’ in Italian, this event will feature custom-made collections by established fashion designers/couturiers in line with ‘Couture’ style and high end ‘Pret-a-Porter’ collections.
Most of the collections shown will mainly be available on a made-to-order basis and may be ordered by clients immediately after the show, during after-show cocktails or by appointment if the designer and customer prefer. Kuala Lumpur Alta Moda hopes to attract high net-worth individuals – the crème-de-la-crème of society.
At the same time, Kuala Lumpur Alta Moda does not rule out the possibilities of trade for participating designers/couturiers. As designers will be involved in identifying their own guests and audience, their ‘high fashion’ collections may well attract the interests of local retailers who are invited to further develop the lines into prêt-a-porter (ready-to-wear) collections.
For Kuala Lumpur Alta Moda, each designer/couturier will be given his or her own individual slot during the 3-day event. And, in keeping with the tradition of the international fashion industry, each designer will be completely involved with directing their own production particularly in the areas of model casting, choreography, light and sound.
This in turn will also benefit our local models and appointed service providers as they will have the opportunity to learn and work with international designers who usually demand a high standard of service and commitment.
Kuala Lumpur Alta Moda, which used to be parked under KL Fashion Weekend has also pioneered the initiative to promote Malaysian capabilities in terms of fabric production and garment making.
In 2013, Kuala Lumpur Alta Moda established links with the British High Commision, which resulted in collaborationand partnership with Zandra Rhodes of the UK, who was recently been commissioned by Valentino to produce a print.
This year, KL Alta Moda established new links with Austrade which has resulted in a collaboration with Fashion Advocate of Australia. At the end of the year, Kuala Lumpur Alta Moda will also begin negotiations with Anna Sui, another big name in fashion, to further promote our local fabric production capabilities to the international fashion world.
The collaboration with Zandra Rhodes has landed production opportunities at the London Fashion Week for KL Alta Moda’s producer, Dodi Mohammad who was entrusted to produce Zandra Rhodes SS16 (in September 2015) and Zandra Rhodes AW16 (in February 2016) London Fashion Week presentations.
This year, Kuala Lumpur Alta Moda will be presented in conjunction with 'A Journey Through Time', organised at The Starhill Gallery by the YTL group. Kuala Lumpur Alta Moda, which is supported by The Australian High Commission and The British High Commission, will feature designers Dame Zandra Rhodes DBE of the UK, Sandra Rives and Peter Farmer of Australia, Yamin of Indonesia and Lord's Tailor of Malaysia.
Suhara Jewel Art and MASA Horlogerie are among the participating brands of accessories.
Apart from fashion, Kuala Lumpur Alta Moda also advocates individuals of style in music, appointing Professor Dato’ Dr Ng Kah Ming as its Ambassador.
