Khoon Hooi is a well known fashion designer from Malaysia. I love his designs and I can relate to it real well. It has been a while since I knew the brand – Khoon Hooi, but I really got to know him about 2 years ago. That was when I first attended Khoon Hooi’s fashion show in KLFW 2015. Ever since, I had been an avid fan of his designs.
For this Fall 2017 collection, Khoon Hooi is inspired by bonafide fashion icons from the Hollywood golden era. The Hollywood golden era has inspired many with their chic and effortless style. Hence, Khoon Hooi has created pieces of voluminous skirts, elegant blouses and classic well-fitted occasion wear based on that era. Below are some of my favourites from this season.
The key details are acid rosebud brocade, bateau necklines, empire-waisted belt line, knife pleats and chandelier crystal embellishments. They’re all so elegant and the details are intriguing. I asked him about those feather on the skirt that looked so obvious yet it’s not at the same time. He told me that it was actually laminated in between the organza cloth! It was mind blowing to me.
