Hi-Tea Pre-Adilfitri Fashion Show by Norrella

Hi Tea Pre-Aidilfitri Fashion Show By Norella
Today was an exciting weekend, other than lazing about at home on a Saturday, I was up and ready for a pre-Aidilfitri fashion show organized by Norrella. Honestly speaking, it was really an impromptu thing and I had no regrets of going. It was really a fun session of hi-tea, plus the extra benefit of having a fashion show to witness just before the upcoming Raya Festive season!


Who is Norrela you may ask? Well, just a heads up, Norrela Iznin Abd Ghani or more known as Norrela, is a mother of 3 children who has taken up an opportunity to fulfill her dreams into entering the singing industry. In 2018, she launched her own album titled "Moonstruck" which marks an achievement of making her dreams come true. During the event, I managed to catch her for a quick chat and I must say that she is a very inspiring lady, to begin with, who strives to fulfill goals in life.


The fashion show covers a few local designers who are passionate and growing within the industry. All thanks to Norella's hard work and effort, the event was a success to showcase exclusive collections from Evey by JD, Funz Kaftan, Vini G, Tuhfah, Dahlia and Mysarah. Since it was a pre-Aidilfitri show, most of the designs are exclusively designed under the Aidilfitri theme and I must say that im impressed on how intrigued the details and handwork of each masterpiece.

Funz Kaftan 
Starting the fashion shows collection was Funz Kaftan featuring 5 lovely designs that look really comfortable and fashionable at the same time. I actually admire that her collection was more focused around being versatile in being able to wear it for different occasions, be it on a casual day or a glam dinner night out. It has a classy touch to the collection and if youre a fan of accessories, her outfits would be perfect to enhance your accessories too!

Tuhfah Kids
Next would be a collection presented by Tuhfah, exclusively designed for children to glam up during the festive season. Her designs are not as complex and but it would really attract the attention of the kids when it comes to the comfort of their clothing line. Seeing the kids walking so confidently on the walkway, I can pretty much tell that her pieces are very much suitable to adapt to what kids would prefer most without disturbing their comfort in a festive outfit.

Tuhfah Kuala Lumpur
Tuhfah also has a collection for the adults that speak out classical traditional that caught my attention. Her chosen models were modeled by matured women who were talented on the runway and they were all workin' her collection. Despite her models being more sophisticated than my age, it really added a touch of traditional values in terms of design and choice of colors. Her collection really speaks to me as Old Malaya in a modern era for those who prefer to stand out with the classics.

Dahlia
We also had Dahlia's collection who walked the runway, and this would be another eye-catching collection for those who would want to make heads turn. I kinda like the flowy touch that she added into the collection that really makes anyone who walks in her collection to really stand out. Its all about the puffy bottom with volume shoulders to really brings out a statement. Won't you agree?

Vini G
Vini G is originally from India but has been residing in Malaysia for more than 20 years. The designer has a deep understanding of Malaysian culture and clothing takes on an interesting appeal due to her International exposure. With this fashion show, she showcases her mission to make fashion all inclusive and within reach of every woman no matter what your age, shape and size would be. With the mindset of strong conviction to let every woman feel gorgeous, Vini understands the psyche of women from all sorts of background, in which has been reflected in her collection. Highlighting a combination of international perspective and the ability to marry traditional sensibilities, she manages to bring modern context pieces to life. With the choices of colors and play of texture, she is very well experienced in designing and for those who might be looking for a designer or a stylist, Vini G also accepts orders on exclusive fabrics and custom designing to suit outfits based on different personalities. Other than the Ready to wear collection, she also provides events and bridal collection Rental.

Mysarah
For the younger generation, I must say that Mysarah's collection did a great job of keeping things funky and fresh. I personally liked her collection a lot more as they were all very fresh and vibrant. From the choice of color combination to versatility, her collection really brings out the charisma and potential of different ways to style each outfit. Models were strutting the outfits in boots, and I can see that it looks like a perfect combination that also highlights your shoes too. Definitely, have to keep on eye on her upcoming collection.

eveybyJD
And last but not least would be a collection by eveybyJD. Her collection was very funky and young as well, with a little bit more character to suit different personalities. Despite it being a Raya themed fashion show, her collection is very vibrant and focuses on creating a statement. From asymmetrical designs to playing with fabric texture, I would say that the designer has taste in mixing and matching each combination of outfits created. Major love to eveybyJD! You should really check out her collections when you have the time on Instagram (eveybyjd).

Norella singing on stage to 'wow' the crowd
Credits really goes to Norella for making this a successful event to provide a space for talented local designers to showcase their work. Other than the fashion show, Norella also surprised guest with a performance by her songs on stage. Honestly, it was my first time hearing her songs, and personal opinion on it would be that she really sings and writes from her heart. If youre looking for sentimental romance genre of music, I'd suggest you check her album out called "Moonstruck". Well, ending my post here and please feel free to share me your thoughts on the collection too!

  3. Hi Aliza, gr8 write up dear but we Models of Tufah are not elderly as we were not using "tongkats" with bad backs or knees. According to WHO Human Age Criterion, elderly is 80 - 99 yrs old. I think trying to potray traditional Malay baju needed Mature women to carry the fashion of yester years that has got lost with modern baju style of dressing. I love the Baju Kedah but I'm certainly not elderly & if u noticed, I walked it like a runway not a catway walk!

    1. Hello! Thank you for dropping by. Pardon my language. When i say elderly, i was thnking of someone who is older than me due to the age gap. Its like a saying of 'respecting those who are older than you', but i guess it didnt turn out right in my write up. I've changed the wordings from elderly to matured women instead as i agree that the way you walked the runway was extremly well done! Good job on modeling those really nice pieces.
