Fashion enthusiasts, brace yourselves for a spectacular affair as the International Ipoh Fashion Week (IIFW) Season 5 takes centre stage! Founded by the visionary Louis Sebastian, IIFW has rapidly ascended to become Ipoh’s premier international fashion event, and from December 1st to 3rd, it promises a 3-day fashion extravaganza that’s more than just stylish – it’s sensational!

Endorsed and supported by the Perak State Government, Tourism Perak, and Majlis Bandaraya Ipoh, IIFW serves as a platform celebrating Malaysia’s rich cultural diversity. With a fusion of Malay, Chinese, Indian, and indigenous influences, it harmoniously blends with global fashion brilliance, solidifying Perak’s status as an emerging fashion hub where style knows no boundaries.

Beyond the glitz and glamour of the runway, IIFW serves as a launchpad for emerging fashion designers. With its growing reputation, the event has transcended national borders, attracting renowned fashion labels and powerhouses from Singapore, Indonesia, Nepal, India, and the Philippines. This international collaboration not only elevates the stature of the event but also gives our local fashion institutions like UiTM Seri Iskandar and Community College, Batu Gajah exposure to a global audience.

However, what truly sets it apart is its exceptional blend of compassion and style. It is not merely as a runway but as a dynamic stage where fashion enthusiasts, visionary designers, and benevolent philanthropists seamlessly unite to create a remarkable fusion of style and substance.

Fashion Changes but Styles Remain.

IIFW stands out through its unwavering commitment to charity, and this season’s impact is poised to be bigger and better than ever before. IIFW’s “Fashion with a Heart” 2023 endeavours to generate funds once again for the Paediatric Department (PHDU) of Hospital Raja Permaisuri Bainun Ipoh and district specialist hospitals within Perak state. By attending IIFW, you’re not just witnessing incredible fashion; you’re becoming a part of a transformation that will impact the lives of children and their families.
