Kuala Lumpur – A New Fashion Capital

When we think of the Malaysian capital, what comes to mind? Perhaps it’s the majestic Petronas Towers, Petaling Street or even the ancient Batu Caves. However, according to a recent article by Violet Kim of CNN, fashion is now one of the things we should be considering when we think about Kuala Lumpur. Fashion industry leaders Louis Vuitton, Burberry, and Versace have all established flagship stores in KL in the past decade. In fact, Malaysia as a whole, is home to over 350 shopping malls with command over 100 million square feet of retail space. The complex gaining significant prestige right now is ‘The Curve’. The hugely popular mall is located in the district of Mont Kiara and boasts over 250 shops on three floors. Found just outside the city center, it is not only equipped with the finest threads the industry has to offer, but it’s also easy on the eye itself.
