Day 2 highlights include Laguna Sydney simple and chic evening gown, Jimmy Lim eclipse's luxe take on aesthetic sparkly modern dresses, and Hatta Dolmat's sheer printed flowy collections.

Before KLFW RTW 2019 officially ends, we can surmise that sheer, sparkly and print on print are still trending, and no matter how many monotone collections that have been presented on the runway, there's always an element of surprise that comes along with each piece. Aside from the typical trends, Hatta Dolmat is making a comeback with a brand new collection presentation entitled HATTA DOLMAT NOUVEAU COLLECTION 19/20.

Look forward to fall and/or wintry weather with Hatta Dolmat's minimalistic printed effortlessly collection of dresses, printed turtlenecks shirts, loosely and casually draping design of skirts and long gowns, trench coats and printed outerwear all in basic-tone colours. A distinct tassel motif can be seen in most of every piece on this new collection and it was a printed personal drawing of Hatta himself with a hidden alphabet ‘H’ which might be jarring to some but unique to most of our eyes. Throughout the HATTA DOLMAT NOUVEAU COLLECTION 19/20 presentation during KLFW, the detailed tassel printed garments has been strutted down the runway until the end in the most attractive colours for both men and women.

Despite being in the hometown fashion industry for more than 10 years and second time of joining the KLFW, Hatta Dolmat admits that this new collection brings a lot more of excitement for him. Hatta comes with a more laid-back design that is either monotone or minimalist. The second inclusion of this Malacca-born designer was particularly special when trying to highlight the differences by incorporating the motif of tassel into his line.

"I have been in the industry for more than 10 years and fashion has evolved in Malaysia drastically. Therefore, I would like my own collection to be seen as unique, simple, modest and most importantly, this collection includes my own personal touch and this element is the element that you cannot find in any other designs. Only, in HATTA DOLMAT NOUVEAU COLLECTION 19/20” said Hatta Dolmat.

According to him, KLFW is also seen as the best platform for local fashion designers to produce high quality and attractive fashion collections to make their products comparable to international products.
