The official opening of the Malaysia International Shoe Festival (MISF) 2016 gathered thousands of highly anticipative audience as it kicked off its 7th edition at Putra World Trade Centre, Kuala Lumpur.
Special Guest of Honour, YB Datuk Mas Ermieyati Samsudin, new Deputy Minister for Ministry of Tourism & Culture Malaysia, was excited at her debut involvement with the Festival this year, as she also harbours a passion for fashion and shoes.
She added, “The Malaysia International Shoe Festival has been an annual event that has been co-organized with us since the year 2010. Looking at the range of activities during these 3 days, I’m glad to see that apart from the exhibits and sales of trendy shoes, there are also many competitions organized for youths. An estimated 500 students are participating in competitions, and joining in on the Fashion Forum!”
Competitions lined up over this fashionable weekend include Display Your Creativity: The MISF Art Installation Showcase, and a Shoe Make Over Competition entitled Step Up To Color.
The launch of the 7th edition Festival also saw the kick-off of several crowd-pleasing highlights such as an International Sneakers Collection, Shoe Fashion Show, Fashion Designer Gallery, Fashion Forum by Local Famous Designers, Shoe Vintage Gallery and appearances by Professor Datuk Dr. Jimmy Choo OBEl!
Professor Datuk Dr. Jimmy Choo OBE and Bon Zainal participated in the fashion forum that saw them sharing their brand secrets and encouraging arts students to pursue their dreams of a business in fashion. Many shoe fanatics in the audience were actively involved in the forum’s Q&A session, followed by a meet and greet session after that.
