Welcome batik in your modern cheongsam dress this Lunar New Year 2018.
Melinda Looi’s CNY 2018 was exactly as anticipated: Fresh, vibrant and adventurous.
The Malaysian fashion maestro never fails to delight with her urban twists on the traditional cheongsam dress and the ones that stood out personally for me was those that come with a splash of batik.
Marrying batik fabrics with the Chinese signature silhouette is genius as it results in a captivating blend of unique Eastern cultural flavors.
Transforming the fashion game through her adventurous use of lace, batik and jacquard together, Melinda Looi’s latest Chinese New Year collection titled Hi-Tea In Shanghai explodes visually in her trademark mix of happy colors and prints, designed to appeal to the trendy and experimental fashion bracket.
Available in a myriad of colors and shapes, the Malaysian fashionista will be spoiled for choice as the options are endless.
The list below displays my personal favorites from her CNY 2018 collection. Enjoy!
