kuala lumpur and singapore proofed one more time that not only tokyo and seoul are the main fashion capitals in asia.the styling on the streets was highly creative....the most powerful trend will be the combination of traditional (ethnic) fabrics with modern fabrics and styling. goth and dark wave styling is still very strong, but the 60`s and early 70`s are increasing trends. local brands like PHILOSOPHY are gaining more and more importance.....the best malls to check out local brands and talent are: sungei wang plaza mall and fahrenheit 88...both located close to BB plaza. here are some key looks from sr and kl.......thanks to ayie _ DETECTIF  STAILISTA _and kimmy for the support !!!!!     published 11.11.201
