The AEON Fashion Preview (AFP) June 23 Edition at IOI City Mall, Putrajaya witnessed a spectacular kick-off

The fashion event saw 500 individuals walk the AFP runway, showcasing their own style and personal branding. From professional models to everyday Malaysians, AEON's impressive casting call was open to all.

It was a celebration of fashion that embodied accessibility, diversity, and individual expression.

The outstanding achievement was even recognised and documented by the Malaysia Book of Records as the largest number of participants ever in a fashion show!

The thematic fashion capsules presented included signature pieces from AEON's exclusive lines

AEON's exclusives are: SCAR, Puteri, Arcadia, M, ti:zed, innercasual, iC, Agenda, Suave, Guys' Vision, +Collection, Scarlet inners, JKids, and Crème.

The capsules showcased accessible fashion for any occasion — from unconventional linen that defy structured silhouettes with its lightweight and breathable fabric to timeless and versatile denim-on-denim, as well as sportswear that combines style and functionality, career wear for the modern worker, and travel wear with lightweight knits.

Models of all ages walked through the mall to the main catwalk in the Centre Court.
