Following the charity black tie royal gala dinner to kickstart Perak’s most anticipated fashion extravaganza of the year, Day 2 of International IPOH Fashion Week (IIFW) Season 5.0 began bright and early.
Jalan Bandar Timah in Ipoh Old Town, between STG Ipoh Oldtown and 22 Hale Street Heritage Gallery, was transformed into a fashion runway for the people.
Bringing together local fashion talents and international labels, plus Ipoh’s very own plus-size collection by Khair Johari, the diverse designs were a feast for the eyes, as MC Rock pumped up the beat.
The fashion houses that showcased their collections included Kolej Komuniti Batu Gajah, Lucky Seven, Rohacraft, Sha-Nad Studio, Puan Aspekraf, Dreamwear by Manju Dhakal, FM@Cheongsam, Rette Tianita, and the aforementioned Khair Johari.
Not only did the designs and colours captivate spectators, but models from as young as six years old to veteran models well into their sixties, also brought out cheers and claps from the crowd. Closing the fashion runway was the plus-size collection by Khair Johari, whose models almost stole the limelight with their confidence and cheery disposition.
At the end of the 1.5-hour public street fashion showcase, the eighty models and their designers came out together for a street party. Yes, it was in the middle of the day. However, after adhering to the strict royal protocols the previous evening, it was time to let their hair down!
