A Sikh donning a batik turban caught the attention of many many at a recent Kuala Lumpur fashion event.

Keshminder Singh looked stunning when he took the runaway at the Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week Ready-to-Wear 2017, an event that insists on brand new collections.

Keshminder, an executive at a local plantation conglomerate, was certainly parading something different, something unique. He was displaying a batik turban, jeans and batik shirt from local brand Tarik Jeans, with a black jacket.

The outfit can be worn for a party or simply for casual wear.

This was the first time that the 26 year-old Keshminder had taken part in a fashion show.

Asked how it felt, he told Asia Samachar: “It was a good experience. It’s good to be a little unique, a little different.”

Batik refers to cloth that has been dyed using the batik method. The method involves producing coloured designs on textiles by dyeing them, having first applied wax to the parts to be left undyed.
