Local couturier, Rizalman Ibrahim lends his exquisite eye for detail and penchant for elegant designs in a limited collection for Tesco.
This Raya season, you will be able to don designer baju kurung and kebaya from Rizalman at affordable prices. The designer is celebrating his 20 years in the fashion industry, thus the Raya collection is named 20 by Rizalman. It is a milestone to be proud of as Rizalman’s workmanship is exquisite and fans have grown by the dozen over the years.
“After being in the industry for a good two decades, I would like to bring myself closer to my fans and share with them my wonderful moments.”
This marks Tesco’s third collaboration with a local designer after having previously worked with Michael Ong and Melinda Looi.
At the special media launch yesterday, it was especially exciting to see Rizalman’s take on the traditional wear. Fashion enthusiasts will notice that he has given the range a modern feel as elements of short kebaya and baju kurung Kedah were evident. The pieces vary in colours yet the elegant appearance and quality are maintain.
For this collection, he played with a lot of texture, lace, brocade and striped design. Detailing was not missed as we see his line-up of bow ribbons, sequined sleeves and pretty rosettes adorning the pieces. Are you excited yet to go visiting friends and family this Raya season?
“I admit, it was not an easy process for me. I regard myself as a couturier, I’ve always designed one-off pieces and to make this collection it took a lot of time and effort. But I’m very happy with the results. This is my way of saying thanks to the fans for all the support throughout the years,” sums up the man of the moment.
20 by Rizalman will be made available at selected Tesco stores around the country from July 7th onwards. Prices range from RM180 to RM250 per piece. If you would like to meet Rizalman in person, he will be making special appearances at two Tesco stores:
- Tesco Extra Shah Alam – July 14th, 4pm-6pm
- Tesco Mutiara Damansara – July 15th, 4pm-6pm
