Rizalman Ibrahim’s Bridal collection-Blanc 08 features sophisticated contemporary Malay designs that are romantic, urban yet trendy. Featuring the classic kebaya, kurung and new silhouettes that are boldly combined with modern and western touches such as bustier, mermaid cut, full ruche and soft silk chiffon draped effortlessly over the body. If the term bridal conjures images of puffy and fussy outfits with lots of beading, then you would be pleasantly surprised with Blanc 08 had to offer.
Rizalman’s approach is clearly to focus on simple silhouettes that emphasized the importance of a good cut. But those terms often conceal the intricacy of his craftsmanship. Rizalman is clearly a perfectionist and that can be seen in the fluidity of the outfits. The silhouettes may be simple but the way it falls on the body is a testament to the precision of his construction.
Rizalman sets the benchmark for poetic beauty with exquisite hand-embroidered French lace complete with tranquil toned adornments of sequins, Swarovski crystals and beads. Blanc 08 offers you a new dimension of choice when selecting your dream gown. Made from highest quality fabrics of silk and chiffon, and accented with hand-made embellishments that offer the look and feel of pure opulence. It clearly proves that Rizalman is a clearly thinking designer, who adopts an intellectual approach to designing.
Once again his intent is to take the traditional Baju Melayu to another level by adding little touches give it an avant-garde feel.
