Kuala Lumpur is known by many as a shopping paradise, with visitors from neigbouring countries coming in especially for shopping sprees. The market is highly competitive and you'll find a majority of international high street and luxury labels represented. Recently though, there's been a swing towards supporting local fashion designers, resulting in an increase of independent boutiques.
SEETHROUGH Concept Store
Run by local stylist Calvin Cheong, SEETHROUGH Concept Store brings together young, independent designers from across the country and around the region in an ultra-modern space. Across the road you’ll find another store run by Calvin and friends, called Never Follow Suit – the stock here is a little younger and funkier, with different rooms catering to different styles.
Occupying prime position in the swanky Gardens Mall, M Store hosts a selection of designers from all over the world – the latest imports include Emma Cook and Clover Canyon, while they also carry beautiful shoes by Sam Edelman and Schutz and accessories from a range of cult designers.
If you’re looking for something truly Malaysian (but not cliched) to take home from your holiday, local designer Khoon Hooi has some lovely pieces in his Starhill boutique. Khoon Hooi has showed and sold in Paris, and his work is feminine, refined and thoroughly modern.
