Kedah Fashion Week ‘model’ identified as trans woman who was not affiliated with event
Kedah state government exco identified the individual in a statement released earlier yesterday
THE person at the centre of the Kedah Fashion Week (KFW22) viral outrage storm has now been identified as a trans woman with no affiliation with the event.
She had taken the pictures on stage, modelling her own outfit, after the event at Aman Central Mall in Alor Star had ended.
Kedah health and local government exco Datuk Dr Mohd Hayati Othman announced the news in a statement after a meeting with the Kedah state government a few hours ago.
“It is understood that the individual in question was not a participant who was invited to show off their clothes in the KFW event,” he said.
He also described her as someone who often posts pictures of herself in scandalous outfits on social media.
“The actions of the individual in question are believed to be personal actions taken after the fashion show event in question had ended.”
He stressed that the state government would look into studying and simplifying rules related to entertainment events and performances in order to make sure they comply with the cultural customs of the state.
