Myanmar Fashion’s New Wave

Myanmar Fashion’s New Wave

This is the second time celebrated designer May Myat Waso has participated in John Lwin’s Myanmar International Fashion Week. “I modernize traditional dresses,” she told Myanmore. One of Myanmar’s biggest fashion stars, May Myat Waso has shown her work in over 30 local and three international fashion shows. She began designing in 2007 and recently opened a fashion school.

Her show this year, at 7pm on Saturday evening, will have three rounds: uniforms, followed by evening dresses, followed by traditional Myanmar dress. Some of the dresses she’s showcasing this year include custom-made art pieces. “People in Myanmar wear a lot of chite longyi, but they are not always suitable for events. So, in my most recent designs, I included some art in the designs,” she said.

May Myat Waso has a surprise in store for those attending her catwalk show. “I have put in some designs that can only be seen when the wearer is walking,” she told Myanmore, adding that the opening and the closing dresses are the most stylist in her collection. Thanks for the tip, May Myat Waso.
