I raved about this everywhere on my social media. This blog, my twitter, my Instagram even my snapchat! I’m so sorry for those who’re following me, feel free to mute me guys haha (or you guys already did…..)
Fiziwoo is back with Raya and The City 2 guys!!! Their Raya and The City 1 in 2015 was the reason why I am totally hooked with this brand, it is a tradition for me to have at least 1 Fiziwoo every raya now. Every single penny invested on this brand was worth it. Those are during their Zalora era, but now that they’re collaborating with FashionValet, of course they’re bound to get tremendous amount of attention and demand from FV’s shoppers hehe
I told you guys that I’ve been waiting for this collection for so long, ever since Fiziwoo posted the first teaser and also since the Gaya Koleksi Raya fashion show happened. I was over the moon when I knew that this year’s collection is called Raya and The City 2. You mean round two of my favorite collection ever??? Bring it on!
I got to witness some of the pieces on first hand at the FV pop-up store in Brunei even before they officially launch it on FV’s website, touched it and hugged it and all hehehe. I thought they were going to release all designs at once, as per usual, but they decided to release it batch by batch this year. Ugh the suspense and the waiting. I was so confident that I’m going to get this design that I’ve been eyeing on since the beginning, because I don’t have to stress out in getting their pieces every year. But boy, should’ve not underestimated the power of FV’s fans.
They launched Kurung Penang, Kurung Ipoh, Jubah Kota Bharu, Kurung Kinabalu, Kurung Kuantan and Kurung Sentul on the site first. I knew that Kurung Kuantan is going to be the crowd’s favorite because even in Brunei I saw a lot of ladies going “oooo” “wow” while touching Kuantan. I feel you guys haha. I was all chill on the first launch because the design that I wanted was not there yet, but I kept on checking the site just in case they decided to launch the second batch. I was right about the Kurung Kuantan guys. Fiziwoo had to restock the Kurung Kuantan and some of the designs on the SAME DAY. How insane is that??? I didn’t expect that, the Fiziwoo team didn’t expect even the world did not expect that! Starting from that point I went on total panic mode. I read the comments on Fiziwoo’s IG and the demand was real, guys. The design that I wanted was not even there yet but I already felt like giving up hahaha #weak. dUCk battle is enough for me thank you.
They decided to restock the sizes and what nots but it was still not enough. They launched the first batch on Thursday, restocked some on the same day and little did I know that they’re going to release new designs during midnight. I just knew about it during fajr and I was all exhilarated to see that the kurung that I’ve been wanting for so long is finally made available. BUT the size stopped at UK10.
WHY. JUST WHY. I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU FOR SO LONG I DON’T DESERVE THIS.
But anyway, long story short, I sorted my kurung hehehe <3
Ok enough with my pointless blabbering, let’s continue to my top10! (though it doesn’t amount to 10 kurungs…) I kid you not I almost had 5 #1 here but let’s be real..
1. KURUNG SEREMBAN
Legit my first love, guys. I finally knew what love looks like. I went all nuts when I first saw this
Oh. Nyums. All. The. Way.
The dramatic ruffles that escalates down to form a half peplum. What kind of genius is this??
Legit drooling right now. Pass me the tissue please!
This look is honestly over the top and I thought my Kiara kurung was extra enough! Those who dissed me for wearing my Kiara’s gonna choke to death if they see this LOL. For those who are going for ready to slay look for this year’s raya, I gotchu all covered hun hehe. Available in coral and maroon, this neoprene kurung is only available until size UK10 for now. So be fast!
2. KURUNG JOHOR BHARU
If you think that the first one is too much for you but you still want the similar design, fret not ’cause kurung Johor Bahru’s definitely for you! I love love love the ruffles so much guys! Though this one isn’t a half peplum, wait till you see the back of the top
Half peplum…below your shoulder! Still win *blows nail* hahaha kidding! I’m seriously obsessed with the ruffles guys ugh..
HEART. EYES. Little embellishments to spice up the kurung even more. I also love the choice of pink here, so me. Will this be your choice though? ;>
3. KURUNG SENTUL
This beauty is one of the best-sellers. I’ve seen this kurung in real life at the pop-up store and I don’t know if I’m biased or what but honestly this one stood out the most in the sea of kurungs! People are demanding for Fiziwoo to restock this design because it is currently sold out so if you’re interested, keep your eyes peeled on their updates! Peplum is timeless and by adding the extra cape around the chest area, say no more to a boring typical peplum guys. Bet your other peplums are gonna get jealous with this Sentul bahaha
The little embellishments on the cape *heart eyes* Oh imagine if this one is yours…heee…
4. KURUNG KUANTAN
Yet, another crowd’s favorite. I also get to touch this before it was launched on the website and by watching people from a far (was not intended to ’cause I was actually just staring at the Fiziwoo’s rack haha) and their amazed reactions, I knew in an instant that this kurung’s gonna make people turn insane. I’ve never been so right.
The belt is actually sewn as part of the kurung, so no need to worry of misplacing it hehe. Also love the bell sleeves there, its not too dramatic but not too small either, just the right size to compliment the kimono-like top as a whole. This time the embellishments are sewn on the sleeves, making the kurung appear even more cuter <3
5. KURUNG KINABALU
Boss Chick’s favorite. I told her to get it but she just rolled her eyes to me and said that this one is only for the young souls. Ish, mission failed. Anyway, do you guys remember when I said JM made the best half peplum ever? I’m sorry to say but this honestly beat that half peplum. Call me biased I mean…look at that ruffles though??? I’d tap that bahaha (I still love you though JM!!!)
I don’t know how the magic works but omg guys…it does represents the gunung kinabalu though…#IseewhatyourdidthereFiziwoo #eventhecolourisgreen #genius
Well at least if you choose this one, you can finally say “I’m moving the mountain y’all!” BAHAHA
ok I’m out
6. KURUNG KUCHING
The first one to be revealed by Fiziwoo and I thought it represent me so well so I almost bought this one. I still head over heels in love with this though. I love how we can wear this with the skirt or can also wear it with pants for the casual look.
Cuteness. Overload. I’m obsessed with the dramatic bell sleeves. Also loooove the orange embellishment, it stood out perfectly with the black background
Would totally, no doubt, feel the cutest in this top. I’d wear it with orange scarf to match with the embellishment. I didn’t buy this kurung, but you still can buy it though 😉
7. KURUNG IPOH
If you’r not a fan of peplum but fell in love with the cape, Ipoh is here for you! This kurung actually came in pink also but I couldn’t find it on FV anymore, obviously sold out. People also demanded for this design to be restocked, so let’s just wait for it alright heheh.
One of the (many) reasons why I love Fiziwoo is because their kurung always compliment my curves perfectly. The workmanship makes me appreciate my body even more (I used to hate my pear-shaped body…but now no more HEHEH). So fret not if you’re all insecure about your body, embrace what God has given you. Screw society’s standard, thick, thin, curvy whatever, y’all are equally beautiful…and y’all equally deserve this kurung too teehee
8. KURUNG PENANG
Similar to Kuching, but different. If you realize that kurung Kuching’s highlight is the sides of the top (it is actually a normal top but they added volumes on the both sides of it to achieve that baby doll looking top) but kurung Penang’s highlight is the back
Vivy wore this and it is currently sold out too, but there is another color, which is green that is in stock currently so hurry!!!
Side profile on point, I’d sway to Ariana’s side to side while wearing this bahaha. I love how there are embellishments on each of the pockets, heck I love how there are pockets too for you know, keeping the sampuls for the kids or just to steal candies, whichever you’re entitled to do hahaha.
9. JUBAH KOTA BHARU
If this jubah doesn’t make you look and feel like a goddess, then there’s something wrong with you haha #jokes. This one really reminds me of the dress that Lofa wore back it 2014 or was it 2015..but without the heavy embellishments and laces of course hehe. There was a similar dress in Raya and the City 1 too but it was sleeveless, so happy to see a similar design but with added sleeves now <3
Regal. Enough said. If you’re opting for that goddess look, this one might be for you. Make people shift their attention to you in this dress ’cause the dress, and also you of course #duhh heee…deserves everyone’s attention.
That’s a heck of a ride isn’t it? Haha. I’m pretty sure that the collection is complete already, I really do hope so! My heart cannot handle anymore beauties from this collection lol #weak. Some of the designs might be sold out right now, I kid you not the demand is real…bak pisang panas HAHA. Nevertheless, reaally super duper proud of Fiziwoo, they’re gaining the attention that they truly deserve.
So if you’re interested, keep your eyes peeled on their updates! They’re trying to restock the kurungs from time to time but in small quantity (bet they also did not expect the demand to be this huge haha). I’ve secured mine and I can’t wait to share it with you guys! Hope to see some of y’all donning one or two of these beauties!
There’s only one key to stay slaying in it: be hella confident.
So which kurung do you think did I chose? ;>
