The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Style -

De­signer Bernard Chan­dran has jour­neyed through time and brought the dis­tinc­tive spirit of style in­flu­ences from the 1950s, 60s and 70s into his cur­rent Pe­tang Raya col­lec­tion. Ob­serv­ing the fash­ion of the three eras, he dis­sected the styles by fus­ing them with to­day’s trends. His de­signs bring a “nou­veau” sense of moder­nity and in­de­pen­dence that pushes the bound­aries of Raya fash­ion. “I am in­spired by our own iconic and stylish celebri­ties like Mariam Is­mail, Saloma, Saa­diah and even Rahimah Alias who were like the ‘Faye Du­n­aways’ of our world,” Bernard ex­plains.
