Now is the time of major economic slump. Even ELLE editor (November issue) is writing about how the economy has affected fashion industry. Not much of fashion coverage this time. More articles. This time, models are from season 7’s American Idol’s finalists. The Christmas 08 edition have more IT list Christmas item that priced less than $100.
So, she said, the recession has affected fashion industry as well. But still, we have to get dressed everyday. So we do what we have to do.We still have to get dressed to work and all.
I am impressed how Malaysia can have a big saving sale this Christmas season. The government is too nice to help the industry grow by encouraging people to spend more. But, do we have to really do that? since everyone is experiencing economic slump. But amazingly, Malaysia is the other way around.
We just had IFF (Islamic Fashion Festival) and MIFA (Malaysian International Fashion Festical). Impressive innit?
By the way, Midnite sale in Malaysia, is not the same as midnite sale in Plymouth. Usually, on normal days (outside christmas season) the shops are closed at 6pm. But during Christmas time, it is closed at 9pm on Thusrdays (or any other day that they want to open, depends on the mall). But in Malaysia, midnite means 12am man. Imagine that. We Malaysians have that kind of energy to shop till wee hour.
