Fern’s latest batik pieces feature beautiful silhouettes in coral-inspired patterns and palettes. They are available in modern interpretations of the kebaya, as well as in the form of loose kaftans, robes, maxi dresses and sarongs – perfect for the season’s celebrations.
Beauty In Contrasts

Mag Lifestyle’s modestwear collection seeks to empower women through elegant designs. It includes pieces inspired by spring blooms, featuring florals and feminine nudes, dusty pinks and purples, grounded by rich maroon hues.
Rico Rinaldi draws from the butterfly for his latest womenswear. The colour palette recalls the insect’s beautiful wings, with soft pastels and varied shades being a focus. Subdued yet sophisticated drapings cut a demure figure – perfect for Raya festivities.
