Something as impossible as a city for women is not a far-fetched dream anymore- It is under construction in Kuala Lumpur.

This extravagant exhibition and fair is being "developed" by the Star's monthly women's supplement, Clove, and it will be, as its tagline says, "Streets Ahead For Women".

FemmeCity, derived from the French 'la femme' meaning woman, will be held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre from July 30 to Aug 1.

It is catering to women who are intelligent, bold, judicious and ready to spend in products and services that enable them to look and feel good and improve their lives, reports the Star Online.

The highpoint of FemmeCity is its unique concept, which is to develop an actual city.

There will be specific 'streets' covering beauty, fashion, health and fitness, women's consumer products, services and hobbies.

Household brand names such as Canon, Triumph, Tupperware, Wat­sons and Himalaya have confirmed participation at FemmeCity.

It will also have a Library, Clinic, Community Centre and Coffeeshop.

There is also the Playground, which will keep children busy and allow parents to trawl the fair.

Various speakers who would be present at the event include Yap, image consultant and Clove columnist Wendy Lee, master trainer Afa Omar, Qigong columnist Dr Amir Farid Isahak, vasthu sastra consultant T. Selva, self-defence in­structor Joreme Blaine and StarTwo parenting columnist Ruth Liew.

FemmeCity will be opened from 11am to 7pm daily. Admission is free. (ANI)
