First day in Kuala Lumpur for Malaysian International Fashion Week. By Glenn Belverio


Dear Shaded Viewers,

I’m here in KL with fellow Shaded contributor Philippe Pourhashemi covering the city’s fashion week which just started yesterday. I’m enjoying the tropical climate as it was too cold in New York. Looking forward to more catwalks and some sight-seeing in this culturally rich city.

Style blogger Tricia Gosingtian from Manila and Philippe in the lobby of our luxe hotel, the KL Hilton. Tricia was one of the twenty-four specially chosen bloggers under 30 who were flown to New York Fashion Week last February to cover the shows for their Tumblr blogs.


We’re loving the audience at the shows.





The YODA shows (young designers) were rather experimental. This look reminded me of Spiderman’s foe, Doctor Octopus.
