The second season of the much anticipated International IPOH Fashion Week (IIFW™ ’18) is back with the theme, Even Bigger.

As a follow-up to the successful inaugural season last year, this exclusive home-grown event will feature a line-up of fashion designers, models, celebrity guests and performers of both local and international stature.

Carving its niche of being a marque fashion event, this 3-day IIFW™ ’18 will be held from 9th to 11th November, 2018.

Your valuable contribution is necessary
As you may be aware, any event of this scale will not be successful without the support of the community. So, how can you do your part to save tiny babies? There are a few ways.

The easiest is to purchase a table, or ticket to witness the fashion showcases. Is there a simpler way? Of course, just donate in cash to the cause, or in kind to the event.

If you are a fashion designer, or a creative professional related to fashion and design, you may contribute your skills to IIFW™ ’18.
