This season’s Malan Breton show, A Journey to Taiwan, was inspired by the Aborigine people of Taiwan. The runway was lined with Chinese zithers and the show opened with a lively Aborigine Taiwanese dance performance with dancers wearing bright, colorful costumes.

The show was a parade of elegant gowns and stylish suits made of satin silk floral brocade in vibrant hues.

Men’s suits came in an array of intense colors and patterns and are definitely meant for men who are not shy about getting attention. The violet and black floral shirt and suit for men was a favorite of mine.

Midway through the show, a troupe played music on the Chinese zithers, which really enhanced the feeling of being in a faraway land, and it felt like I was watching a rainbow of exotic birds from Asia.

Malan returns to Taiwan: The Heart of Asia. “The vast cultural influences of Taiwan have always been a part of my fashion collections, the country’s architecture and the native tribes have always provided a wealth of inspiration for me.” Malan Breton.
