Over the last two weeks, we hosted the launch of TOPSHOP and TOPMAN on ZALORA in Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and Taiwan (read all about the partnership here). Gathering some of our favourite media and influencer friends, TOPSHOP and TOPMAN fans, we shared some wonderful moments with this fabulous bunch at not one, not two, not three but four (!) launch parties.

Beer, photobooths, a virtual reality experience and the best company to celebrate with… Boy, we had fun indeed!

We’re so thrilled to have iconic British brands TOPSHOP and TOPMAN on board that we decided to step it up and produce our very own ZALORA x TOPSHOP 360 video and ZALORA x TOPMAN 360 video! The use of virtual reality technology and fashion was a natural and seamless marriage for a fashion e­-commerce company like ZALORA and innovative fashion brands TOPSHOP and TOPMAN. It’s fun and it’s the perfect opportunity to incorporate all these elements in a unique and immersive setting, which is what ZALORA is all about!

Bonding with our friends from Cosmopolitan, CLEO, and personalities such as Cherrie Liong, Wind, and Mark O’Dea, the launch party in Kuala Lumpur was held at APW Bangsar, a sixties-inspired retro space that weaves in alternative industrial design vibes. Moving to good music (courtesy of DJ HypeEmBeats and DJ IRAMA), indulging in sandwich platters and other food… we heard from our guests that the VR experience was the cherry on top! *Pats back.

Earthy and rich colour tones were also used to bring out the collection’s elegance and sophistication.




The designer himself, Jovian Mandagie, explained: “This collaborative collection is all about re-conceptualising the idea of simplicity with the distinctive line inspired by Art Deco prints, where every single print is personally designed to let women of just about any age embrace the strength in them.”




To complete his vision, Jovian teamed up with stylish Indonesian actress, Luna Maya to represent his collection and celebrate his take on the true heritage of fashion revolution.

ZALORA Fans Receive Raya Makeover with Rizalman and Samsung

Samsung Malaysia Electronics Sdn. Bhd. in partnership with ZALORA Malaysia, treated Samsung GALAXY users with exclusive promotions during the Raya season through GALAXY Life, its consumer loyalty mobile app. Ten lucky GALAXY users, who redeemed the discount coupons on the Rizalman for ZALORA collection from GALAXY Life, were invited to spend a day getting styled by renowned Malaysian fashion designer Rizalman Ibrahim and his makeover team.


Fashion designer, Rizalman Ibrahim said: “The Hari Raya festivities always bear special meaning for me. My designs for the Rizalman for ZALORA collection are chic yet timeless, with the incorporation of modern elements such as crepe silk, Georgette silk, and metallic embellishments, for that added touch of elegance. Working with Samsung GALAXY Life and ZALORA for a joint promotion such as this has definitely given me an opportunity to connect with customers as well and I am looking forward to more collaboration in the future.”


One of the winners, Azniza Anuwi, 32, was thrilled to be named a winner. She said: “I browse the Samsung GALAXY Life app daily to see all the promotions given by Samsung to us! I’m so thankful that I came across this promotion. Having Raya makeover by Rizalman no less is a great treat provided by Samsung GALAXY Life and ZALORA as it is not a chance that comes by every day. Being able to meet him and getting styled by him totally rocks my world!”

Earlier this month, one of Kuala Lumpur’s most popular shopping malls, Pavilion, was filled to the brim with the fashion pack. Hundreds of well-dressed guests and VIPs gathered at the mall’s atrium while others look over from the second and third levels hoping to catch a glimpse of  the Malaysian fashion event of the year – Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week (KLFW).
