Sometimes, all we need is a helping hand to catapult our careers. Which is what AirAsia's Runway Ready Designer Search competition is all about -- in its 2nd year, they continue with their efforts to develop and empower young and talented designers across the region and create a platform to help them with their careers in the fashion industry.
And after the announcements of the representatives from the Philippines and Singapore last April and May, now three aspiring Malaysian designers are closer than ever to their dreams as they have been chosen to compete and represent their home country in the Grand Finale of AirAsia Runway Ready Designer Search 2016.
The 3 designers were revealed after undergoing two rounds of judging during the Kuala Lumpur auditions, further deliberations, and the opportunity to meet and learn from Andrew Tan, founder of KL Fashion Week Ready To Wear 2016, and Alia Bastamam, renowned fashion designer.
Ryan Alexander Tan Shaur-An from ESMOD Kuala Lumpur, Ng Yi Xuan from SML Fashion Academy, and Loh Teik Lim from ESMOD Kuala Lumpur complete the list of the Top 15 in this region-wide competition and will battle it out this August in Kuala Lumpur with 12 other contestants from Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand.
Plus, they will also stand a chance to walk away from the Grand Finale as AirAsia’s Most Promising Young Designer 2016 and prizes worth RM350,000 -- which include a confirmed show segment to showcase his or her full collection at KLFW RTW 2017.
