‘ASTRAL éphémère’ was the theme that dictated the fashion runway at ESMOD Kuala Lumpur Fashion Show 2017.
Held at Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre, 17 fashion designers from ESMOD Kuala Lumpur curated remarkable collections consisting of over 87 garments that featured inspirations representing “astral ephemeral” or a supposed non-physical realm of existence lasting for only a very short time.
The fashion design show was also graced by the presence of fashion designers Moto Guo and Carven Ong.
There were 17 different collections showcased at the show, with each one designed by its respective designer.
This is actually the latest graduation show organised by ESMOD Kuala Lumpur to exhibit its graduates' final masterpieces.
After the graduation fashion show, ESMOD course instructor Paul Marchand, bestowed the Best Fashion Design Award to Ryan Alexander Tan Shaur-An and Best Patternmaking Award to Hoo Keng Weng.
These awards are prestigious awards presented by ESMOD International to top students in ESMOD annually to honour their achievements. These exemplary students have shown consistent dedication towards fashion design throughout their three years with ESMOD KL and they have been nominated by their lecturers to receive this award.
“We are very proud of what our students have achieved after undergoing our ESMOD Kuala Lumpur’s three-year diploma course. Upon graduation, most of our students will be beginning their internship under the tutelage of top fashion designers in the country as part of a close-knit collaboration with ESMOD KL. This has been ESMOD KL’s practice since the course was launched years ago,” said Tan Chin Wee, Group Executive Director of ESMOD Kuala Lumpur.
