Volkswagen Malaysia has announced its collaboration with local couturier, Alia Bastamam, at the Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week Ready to Wear (KLFW RTW) 2015 event. To mark the occasion, the brand has decided to showcase its models as well as offer a sneak preview of the Volkswagen Beetle Club Edition.

The Beetle Club Edition features a plethora of cosmetic upgrades which includes an exclusive ‘Habanero Orange Metallic’ paint scheme, custom decals, darkened wing mirrors and 17-inch ‘Ravenna’ alloy wheels. On the inside, the car sports a ‘Twist Wave Dark’ cubic film for a faux carbon look while contrasting orange accents help liven up the interior. Only 50 units of the car will be made available.

“Over the years, KLFW RTW has demonstrated that it is a great platform to feature creativity and ingenuity. We are very happy to be the Official Car Sponsor this year and celebrate our debut, by showcasing our iconic designs with the Beetle, Golf R and CC,” said Martina Berg of Volkswagen Group Malaysia (VGM).

“We are delighted to be exclusively debuting her Spring/Summer 2016 designs at the Volkswagen Fashion Night with Alia Bastamam runway show,” added Martina. “Alia is unquestionably one of the most established local designers, whose commitment to timeless and solid design perfectly complements our own philosophies,” she added.

Alia’s Spring/Summer 2016 lineup will be her 16th and 17th collection in her five years. “Fresh and hopeful,” are what she describes as the driving forces behind said collection. “I want to bring back that ease and comfort for my clients because that’s why I came into this industry in the first place – to design and create pieces that I would want to wear myself,” concluded Alia.
