KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, May 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Niche, luxury perfume brand, Fragrance Du Bois, is proud to be one of the major supporters of the recent Middle East Fashion Show (MEFS) 2016, and was delighted to take up the role of Platinum sponsor, alongside KPJ and Orogold. The show was successfully organised by Jana Boutique for a ladies-only audience at the Pullman Kuala Lumpur City Centre Hotel and Residences, on the 7th of May 2016.
The evening at MEFS 2016 exuded an ambience of feminine elegance, and showcased the glamour of Middle Eastern and Far Eastern ready-to-wear fashion. In addition to runway performances, delectable accessory items were also on display at the bazaar, from jewellery and scarves, to cosmetics and bags, through to perfumes and delightful pieces of home décor.
On the runway that night was Jana Boutique and six designers and brands who displayed their latest collections. Jana Boutique enthralled the audience with elegant evening dresses; Shairose Dhanani presented her range of Muslimah evening and formal wear made of beautifully embellished fabric from Pakistan; Sawsan Fashion featured its distinctive and contemporary Abaya and Sheila designs made of satin silk, hand-painted by artist Yusser Ali Al-Qazwini; Mounique showcased her unique range of dresses and elaborate kaftans; and Funz Kaftan paraded its stylish home-sewn kaftans in a dazzling range of colours and designs. Adornments were also featured on the runway, with Suhara Jewel Art’s gorgeous nature-inspired fashion jewellery designs made with precious stones, as well as fun and flamboyant fashion and lifestyle accessories brand, Axxezz, by Gina Frias, who showcased her exotic fusion of East and West.
As one of the supporters of this vibrant and colourful fashion show, Fragrance Du Bois added its touch of luxury and elegance to the event with its beguiling array of Oud-based perfumes at the bazaar. On behalf of Fragrance Du Bois, Johanna Tabuyo, Operations Director in Malaysia, sees the importance of supporting events such as the MEFS 2016. “Ladies-only events such as this not only create a platform that empowers women, but also allows women of different cultures and backgrounds to make connections based on common interests – in this case femininity, fashion, beauty and entrepreneurship. We at Fragrance Du Bois believe that it is important to create brand awareness on these occasions, because we believe in the purchasing power of women, especially when it comes to fashion and luxury brands.”

About Asia Plantation Capital
Asia Plantation Capital is the owner and operator of a diverse range of commercial plantation and farming businesses across the Asia-Pacific region and around the world, and is part of the Asia Plantation Capital Group of associated companies. Its focus is on multicultural and diverse plantation projects geared to the domestic and commercial demands of the countries in which it operates. Working closely with, and supporting local communities, is an underlying core principle of the Asia Plantation Capital business, providing social and cultural support, as well as investment, to move these communities away from deforestation and illegal logging activities, previously seen as a main source of income in some regions of Asia.
Established officially in 2008 (although operating privately since 2002) the group now has plantation and agricultural projects on four continents, with operations at various stages in Thailand, Malaysia, China, Laos, India, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Vietnam, North America and Europe.
Promoting the use of sustainable and certified wood is the best way of preventing deforestation, protecting biodiversity, and combatting poverty in the tropical rainforest regions. For the yachting sector (a major user of teak) which strives for excellence and which is already involved in environmental efforts, this is also a way of ensuring that no wood from illegal logging is used.
