Fashion Raya at Setapak Central Mall... and Akim Ahmad

Times really flies doesn’t it… In just a blink of the eye, we are already in the second week of Ramadan and Hari Raya Aidil Fitri is just other couple of weeks away.. Most of my Muslim friends are all busy preparing, shopping etc…. and well, living in the Gombak vicinity, Setapak Central Mall is the place to go for me…

I was there thanks to an invitation to witness and check out Setapak Central Mall’s launch of their “Fashion Raya”. 

Setapak Central Mall (formerly known as KL Festival City) is situated along Jalan Genting Klang. For this Ramadan, in preparation for Hari Raya, Setapak Central Mall  is beautifully decorated with rustic and colorful kampung-themed decorations with the aim of bringing classic and modern styles together this festive season.

Be sure to check out the Raya booths around the centre atrium area who you can find interesting and pretty nice Muslim ladies’ and men’s apparels, cookies, Raya hamper plus children’s apparels. 

Throughout the month long celebrations, a variety of exciting activities will be carried out to usher in usher in Hari Raya Aidil Fiti. 

Besides regular fashion shows, there will be traditional entertainment such as tarian zapin, gamelan and dikir barat performances at the mall. Fashion related workshops such as tudung styling, make up and samping tying will also be part of these activities, so do not miss out if possible….

Invited guests, members of the media and bloggers were welcomed by Mr. Andrew Neary, the Executive Director for AsiaMalls Sdn. Bhd.  

The launch event was then officiated by Wangsa Maju MP, YB Dato Dr. Tan Kee Kwong after the YB has given his speech.

Setapak Central Mall then held their first fashion show (yup, you heard that right… this is the first they have even had a real fashion show)  highlighting and showcasing popular clothing brands you could find in the mall .. We got to see pretty casual wear from Cotton On...

Pretty feminine and classy apparel which were also affordable from Nichii....

Pretty Muslimah apparel from SRB

Casual wear from Polo Haus

And more traditional and classic designs especially for Muslims from Breeze....

The fashion show definitely had something for everyone... so you can get an idea what you can go buy here at Setapak Central Mall....

The excitement were palpable when shoppers and fans of Akim Ahmad gathered around for a glimpse or to watch the performance of Akademi Fantasia Season 7 ‘s Akim Ahmad who happened to also be the Best Former and Best Vocal of Media Prima Singing Competition 2015 …

Akim Ahmad performed an acoustic medley of two of his hit songs: Mewangi and another song with his band the Majistret before a special Meet and Greet session during the event. And yes, listening to him sing LIVE, you can relate to how he can win the Singing Competition….  I can soooo fall in love with his voice....
