Malaysian heritage inspired prints, modernized traditional silhouettes and vibrant colours, which radiate energy and positivity, Melinda Looi’s ready-to-wear Raya collection 2018 is a reflection of the joy one experiences when going back to one’s hometown during the Raya season. Known for taking inspiration from Malaysia’s vast and beautiful heritage, Melinda Looi’s Raya 2018 collection entitled Bunga Pelikat takes its main inspiration from Kain Pelikat. Traditionally a woven material and used for masculine attire, Melinda puts a special spin to it by making it into a print. Hereby the designer creates a softer look, which she further enhanced by adding floral elements to the print motif. The result is a feminine look and feel, which is a beautiful blend of tradition and ‘something new’.
