Malay tropical couture
"Mega Mendung" glamour: Rizalman Ibrahim designs deluxe ready to wear and haute couture in Kuala Lumpur, inspired from the batik cloud patterns of Malaysia's Kebaya heritage. Bold, lush, baroque tropicalism.
A couple weeks back Singapore-based customizer, SBTG debuted in the US. I didn't make it to the opening (though it would have been a great excuse to visit chic Teaneck, NJ), but imagine some of these funky designs were shown.
