BAZAAR’s leading ladies live out their most surreal experiences through dreamy transformations, captured in the spirit of Man Ray, Kiki de Montparnasse, and Salvador Dalí, in a three-day fashion fantasy at the glamorous Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur.

“The most important value to have is kindness. It’s free, and there’s a shortage.” – Sophia Khan

Leave it to an inspiring educator to consider Malaysia’s political shake-up earlier this year in May her biggest highlight of 2018. Petite, but with a whole lot of spirit, Sophia’s tenacity easily lights up a room, whether it’s during deep, thought-provoking conversations throughout the weekend or her infectious laughter. The young visionary certainly is a brow raiser; the perfect opportunity for us to translate her spellbinding prowess through a headdress inspired by Surrealist designer Elsa Schiaparelli’s eyebrow cap from the 1950s. “Fashion is art, and the way one chooses to clothe themselves is a reflection of their inner being,” says Sophia.
