This specially constructed venue spans 12,000 square feet and features a main show hall, runways, activation spaces, and can host up to 500 guests per show.

While the show space is only for invited guests, the venue features a large LED screen that will livestream the runway shows, making it the first time KLFW is open to the public in this way!

This year, KLFW highlights the art of batik in a special segment called “Fashion Forward Batik Malaysia” with Kelantan-based brand Ruzzgahara. Additionally, the “Design To Sustain” segment, driven by the new PEUGEOT 408, will feature 15 finalists from the KLFW Designer Search 2024, following in the footsteps of Uzair Shoid, who won in 2022.

Following the success of KLFW 2023’s refreshed format of 7 different spaces across 7 days, we were fueled by even greater expectations and aspirations to deliver another year of cutting-edge trends, meaningful impact and world-class fashion. KLFW 2024 and its new iconic show space for the year is a testament to our 12-year journey in advocating for the homegrown fashion industry, made possible by the support of designers, sponsors, partners and the local fashion-savvy community.
