Following the success of the 360 Kuala Lumpur Bazaar, which was held in collaboration with Pintu Merah, the app is gearing up for its third event of the year, which will showcase its most-loved fashion vendors and The Other Party, who are expected set the floor alight with their indie disco tunes from midday to late evening.


Upon launching in late 2013, the app acquired over 110k listings after only six weeks in the market. Today, Duriana leads as the biggest social marketplace app in Malaysia with a wide range of products from arts & crafts to pre-loved fashion to wonderful vintage collectibles.

The app recently launched its latest version, which introduced a host of new features enabling better browsing. Users can now receive email notifications, browse up to 18 categories and sign in with a username as opposed to their Facebook names, among many other new features.

“The whole concept of our market events is about creating communities beyond the online world,” said Camilo Paredes, co-founder of Duriana. “As a social marketplace, it is all about introducing our sellers in intimate events and gatherings, which are an extension of our platform.”

There will be several activities on the side such as a pop up polaroid photobooth and a Champagne pong competition. La Scala restaurant will be serving a champagne brunch and assortment of finger food and tidbits throughout the day.

This looks like a nice spot to hang out at La Scala Rooftop, eh?
