Malaysian Fashion Designers
Fashion is essential, yes, you heard it right! Fashion brings us together and creates amazing talents around the world. Without fashion, we won’t have celebrities and influencers to recommend us on what to wear for a special occasion, or even worse (may god forbids) we won’t have anything pretty to wear daily! Now, talk about fashion, let’s get to know Malaysian Fashion Designers for you to discover!
1. Melinda Looi
Have you heard of Melinda Looi? If you are a fan of vintage and avant-garde, you might want to check her out! Looi has won the title Designer of the Year in 2004, 2006, and 2007. Both 2004 and 2006 were at the Malaysian International Fashion Awards and 2009 at Mercedes Benz Stylo Fashion Awards. If you are looking for her clothing brand, you can look into Melinda Looi Couture, Melinda Looi Prêt-à-Porter, and MELL which are sold in Malaysia as well as in boutiques in Europe, Australia, and the Middle East.
2. Zang Toi
The main theme of Zang Toi has to be elegant and luxurious. He was born in Kuala Krai, Kelantan in Malaysia and he is a dreamer who went to New York to study at the distinguished Parsons School of Design. In March 1990, Toi has successfully become one of the first Asian designers championed by a renowned editor, U.S Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour. Today, this well-known fashion designer has opened his first flagship boutique in New York. He is still recognised for his passion for timeless beauty and elegance in his masterpiece.
3. Jimmy Choo
Every main character in chick flicks wants to wear his shoes, he is none other than Jimmy Choo! Choo was born in Penang, Malaysia and currently living in the United Kingdom. His career started after college where he worked at two design companies for 9 years before he decided to open his own business in 1986. He is discovered by Vogue and from there, he has made himself visible globally. And obviously, his shoes are to die for! Choo designed shoes are for daily tasks especially for big occasions (psst…pretty shoes for your special day 😉)
