DAR­ING DE­SIGN

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Culture -

Ref­er­enc­ing Ari­zona’s mag­nif­i­cent Grand Canyon and Colorado River, the im­pec­ca­bly crafted pieces of Eve­lyn Chia’s win­ning col­lec­tion won the judges over at the fi­nals of BAZAAR Asia New Gen­er­a­tion Fash­ion Designer Award 2015. Held at The Ma­jes­tic Ho­tel Kuala Lumpur, the com­pe­ti­tion was judged by Natasha Kraal, edi­torin-chief, Ken­neth Goh, cre­ative direc­tor, An­drew Tan, the founder of KL Fash­ion Week, Va­lerie Foong, gen­eral manager of Club 21, and Malaysian designer Sonny San.

Com­ing in at a close sec­ond was Al­wyn Chua, with his Ja­panese-in­spired col­lec­tion of dra­matic dresses, bil­low­ing trousers, and re­versible silk jack­ets. (The mod­els looked re­splen­dent on the run­way, thanks to Ur­ban De­cay and L’Oréal Pro­fes­sion­nel.) Al­wyn will join Eve­lyn in Sin­ga­pore to rep­re­sent Malaysia in the re­gional fi­nals at the Audi Fash­ion Fes­ti­val, where the win­ner will re­ceive a Mas­ter’s schol­ar­ship to Isti­tuto Marangoni.
