Recently catching our attention amongst the many local brands is ‘Gunting Batu Kain’. The clothing label that hails from Ipoh, which makes traditional clothes with a modern twist. It’s fun and fresh whilst maintaining a modern classic feel. The clothes that come in cool patterns are designed to flatter different body types, allowing for everyone to enjoy the clothes they make.
On my 18th birthday, I walked home to a green paper bag on the couch, picked it up and read the letters. “Kate Spade”, it said, printed in gold as I ran my fingers over it. My heart fluttered with excitement as I prepared to open it. It was my first time ever receiving something so fancy. I felt like I was in of those coming of age moments in a John Hughes’ movie. Or at least it felt like that.
