Borneo Fashion Week 2018 Pre- Launch

I was at the pre-launch of Borneo Fashion Week (BFW) 2018 held at the luxurious Diplomat KL a few weeks back. The Luxe White Party is the preview to BFW 2018 which will take place from 7 to 9 Sept In Kuching, Sarawak showcasing ethnic inspired fashion collections from local and international designers, promising 10 spectacular runway shows, together with some 30 exhibitors of fashion apparels, accessories, textile, healthcare, ethnic craft and lifestyle products, as well as makeup workshops and F&B purveyors.

Founded and organised by Stephanie Alcantara, BFW 2018 is set to showcased collections from renowned fashion designers from Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam and Cambodia.Three awards will be given out in conjunction with BFW 2018, namely BFW Emerging Designer of the Year 2018, BFW Designer of the Year 2018, and Most Promising Sarawak Designer 2018.

Me. Not in white obviously because I just found this striped shirt at the back of my closet and need an excuse to wear it again

The participating designers’ creations will be judged by a panel of fashion experts from the Limkokwing University. In keeping with the youth engagement direction, BFW 2018 will also introduce the much sought-after award, the Limkokwing Fashion Design Scholarship worth more than RM100,000.

I love Kuching. I was there for the first time a few years back. I love the diversity of the city and how close their people are with their heritage and culture. BFW 2018 is a good way to highlight this along with other amazing stuff that they have in both Sabah and Sarawak.
