Every fashion-obsessed Malaysian will know the name Cassey Gan. And upon hearing that name, images of bold, artistic prints pop to mind. But fashion was not her first choice growing up—she started off as an engineering graduate, who decided to take on fashion after a stint as an intern at a fashion magazine. She returned back to school and changed professions in a heartbeat.
But, with the knowledge that she was never any good at sketching, Cassey counted herself lucky to have stumbled upon an unconventional way that makes her stand out. Instead of following conventional fashion trends, Cassey plays things up with prints, forms and silhouettes. With contrasting prints, uneven hems and even brightly coloured blocks, her clothing quickly earned her recognition in multiple Fashion Weeks both in London and Malaysia. Her eponymous brand, Cassey Gan, has now become a working class favourite and the perfect fashion statement.
