Find out what style is hot and what is not in the upcoming KLFW. Here we highlight the must- watch designers on the runway.
Jonathan Liang embarked on his fashion journey with eager hands and a cultivated mind. Through the humble desire to bring forth his knowledge in fine arts into life, he sought out tutelage from one of Malaysia’s most prestigious fashion schools, emerging with not only the ‘Most Promising Designer of 2009’ award at Malaysian Fashion Week but numerous other honors including the best collection award in 2010 voted amongst all Raffles Institute of Design students and as the iStyle KLIA winner, a fashion show dedicated to acknowledging the best emerging talents in the Malaysian fashion world.
Seeking inspiration from sources such as the Pink Panther, Shakespeare and the Burning Man event, it wasn’t long before acknowledgement of the young day-dreamer’s keen eye for quality and unique designs proliferated. After only one season, London Fashion Week invited Jonathan to feature in their “A La Mode” showcase, where the world’s most outstanding emerging and independent designers display their gift in front of a multitude of press, buyers, industry experts and consumers. An unanticipated level of success followed, as every piece from the “Madame, I Ate an Orchid” collection sold.
Jonathan Liang will show at Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week on Sunday, 16th August, at 7pm. View the full schedule here.
