Creating a modern twist to the conventional Baju Melayu, ANUARFAIZAL braves himself to portray a contemporary look on the Traditional attire. This has a created a controversial response from some who feels that ANUARFAIZAL was too fashion-forward and insensitive of the traditional Baju Melayu concept.
This in response has created a publicity drive that stamps ANUARFAIZAL as a “Controversial” designer, ruffling feathers of most fashion critics and followers. ANUARFAIZAL’s brand approach and marketing strategy was very direct and effective. He became a household name amongst local Celebrities, establishing himself as their Personal Couturier as well the designer of choice for Brides-to-Be / Wedding Planner: focusing on Glamorous Apparels, Special Events and Fitting Needs.

THE EYE HAS TO TRAVEL
In tandem with the self-set tradition of ANUARFAIZAL fashion campaigns, 2015 in Bangkok, Thailand and Acheh, Indonesia as well as Jakarta, Indonesia in 2016, ANUARFAIZAL has travelled to one of the 7th wonders of the ancient world which is Angkor Wat in Cambodia for the 2017 collection.
This journey is powered by THEKLSKYCLINIC and it is fronted by 3 up and coming young actors of Malaysia. They are ARIFF AZIZ, NAFIEZ ZAIDI and QAYYUM AMINULLAH. They are chosen for various factors but the definite factor was for their achievements in the industry in a very short span of time. In addition, their looks represent the many facets of our local culture and race and can appeal to a wider demography. Furthermore, to prove that our garments are flexible, all three of them were wearing size M throughout the fashion campaign shoot.
ANUARFAIZAL is extremely privileged to be given the support by THE ROYAL KINGDOM OF CAMBODIA as normally, fashion and advertorial shoots are STRICLY PROHIBITED on the temple grounds.
This campaign leans towards fine art photography and it is helmed by STUDIO27KL and the edgy and moving fashion film is by UNISEX PRODUCTION and was shot across 5 different locations in Siem Reap, Cambodia in a span of two days.
ANUARFAIZAL hope that this ground breaking effort will set new benchmarks in the fashion industry especially for modern Eid menswear.
