In conjunction with World Skyscrapers Day this September, the Tower Fashion Eleganza 2023 will showcase the works from the best of Malaysian Designers at the Sky Deck.
A grand record-breaking fashion show called the Tower Fashion Eleganza Kuala Lumpur 2023 (TFEKL23) will be held on 9 September 2023 at the KL Tower Sky Deck, which is 300m above ground level.
This event is in conjunction with World Skyscrapers Day as KL Tower is also the tallest communications tower in Southeast Asia and the seventh tallest in the world.
Highest fashion show in Malaysia
If all goes according to plan, this runway show will actually be the highest fashion show ever actualized and successfully carried out in Malaysia, confirmed by the CEO of Malaysia Book of Records (MBOR), Jwan Heah.
Located atop Bukit Nanas (one of the oldest permanent forest reserves in Malaysia) at a height of 421 meters, KL Tower is the only tower in the world located within a forest. This will definitely add more fascination and meaning to the record-breaking fashion show.
15 designers and 75 models
The TFEKL23 will showcase the works of 15 top-notch Malaysian designers including Radzuan Radziwill, Carven Ong, Bon Zainal, Fizi Woo, Rasta Rashid, Kalima, Leslie Variyan and more names to be announced soon.
Paraded by 75 of the country’s most sought-after models, the fashion designs will feature the designers’ collection that combines various elements which include modern, traditional, stylish, innovative and of course, elegance of the highest order.
Broadcasted live on TV
Organised by both Bon Fashion Legacy and Nuunaa Management, this showcase will be the first show ever to be shown live on TV by several RTM channels and media platforms.
