Make Baju Kurung Great Again

This edition of A Bit of Culture presents a troika featuring our favourite fashionista Azura Rahman and podcaster Ezra Zaid together with Kam Raslan, tapping into the undercurrents of local and international culture. We kick it off with a topic that has been plastered all over our screens this past week, the outgoing Donald Trump and his last ditch antics. We also dive into the realm of fabrics, Kam discusses the gingham design; its etymology, the evolution of the design over the years and how it is used in today’s context. Lastly, our trio responds to a recent online furore on the mismatched value of the baju kurung, sharing their most honest two-cents on the matter.

Produced by: Ali Johan
