Raffles College ~ 35th Graduation and Fashion Show on 24 Mar 2016 @ The Royale Chulan Hotel Kuala Lumpur

 35th Graduation and Fashion Show
The Royale Chulan Hotel 
Kuala Lumpur
24 March 2016

Last week was an exciting and fun experience for me as I was invited to attend the 35th Graduation ceremony and fashion show event organised by Raffles College of Higher Education Kuala Lumpur, one of the leading fashion design college in Malaysia.

Raffles College of Higher Education Kuala Lumpur presented – ERROR, its 35th Graduation Fashion Show and Exhibition. The highlight of the graduation was the fashion show by the Fashion Design graduating students. 

The grand and spacious event hall was all decked up and ready to roll the Raffles' young designers showcasing the creative and awesome fashion collections on the runway.

Both my hubby and I were over the moon that night as we were given a front-row VIP gold seat at the fashion show. Truly an eye-opening experience for us as we witnessed Raffles' young and aspiring designers all set and ready to dazzle the audience with their showcase of elegant masterpiece fashion apparel.

The creative and talented students introduced their respective fashion collections on the runway in front of some known fashion judges, writers, journalist and bloggers (ie yours truly) during the Fashion Show.

More shots taken as we wait anxiously for the fashion show to start!

Let me present to you some of the fabulous and sexy creations by Raffles College Graduating Students Collection For The Night. Overall, there are a total of 25 young designers featuring 5 exclusive designs from their collections. 
 Title: The Art Of Illumination
By Designer ~ Elaine Ong Tse Huey

She was inspired by the 'Book Of Kells'.  From her illustrations, colours, letters, framing and all the details, every corner of the book seemed to be filled by the crafter's soul.

Through her designs in this collection, she wishes to celebrate the spirit of the couture world and to inspire everyone to cherish art and craftsmanship in this fast-paced modern world.

Title: Into The Glamorous Jungle
By Designer ~ Sharifah Amina Binti Syed A Hamid

"Simplicity is nature's first step, and the last of art." - Philip James Bailey. All art originally derives from the human conceptualisation of nature. When we wear an interpretation of that, we return to the very basis of what it means to be human and to be a part of Creation.

Title: Don't Run You Little Monster
Designer ~ Ng Yee Chien

Designer Ng quoted this "Kids are angels, but also cheeky little monsters. My mom knew it too well"...

Title: Eternal Beauty
Designer ~ Jeffrey Goh Jao Ren

Loving Jeffrey Goh's simple yet elegant creation. I was totally mesmerized by the intricate design on this lovely gown. 

He named his personal collection the "Eternal Beauty" ~ Unchanged by time. Feminine, elegant and mystical. Inspired by the Greek Goddess Hera, Queen Of The Gods, Goddess Of Marriage. Woman and Childbirth. 

Title: A Requiem For Misadventures
Designer ~ Carina Rozeboom

"She left the web, she left the loom
 She made three paces thro' the room
She saw the water-flower bloom
She saw the helmet and the plume,
She look'd down to Camelot.
Out flew the web and floated wide;
The mirror crack'd from side to side;
'The curse is come upon me,'
Cried The Lady of Shalott."

Title: 1-1
Designer ~ Jacinda Long Ji Ying

In the dark, in the light
Nothing left, nothing right
Something faint, something bright
They know nothing about my life

Title: Eternity
Designer ~ Loh Tze Ven

"Death leaves heartache no one can heal, love leaves memories no one can steal. True love never dies"

Title: Reborn
Designer ~ Chen Yu Chiou

Our black, white and red colour theme designer quoted "A chance to be reborn, and to live with dignity".....
