Malaysia is home to a star-spangled line-up of international designers. The list includes instantly recognisable names like Jimmy Choo, Zang Toi, Bernard Chandran, Edmund Ser, and Faisol Abdullah. Malaysia is also the home base for household lifestyle and fashion companies that have international reach like British India and Bonia.

Not including footwear and jewellery, the Malaysian textile and apparel industry is worth RM10 billion annually. It is well on its way to becoming Malaysia’s next major export. The Malaysian Fashion Season, the Mercedes-Benz Stylo Asia Fashion Week (AFW) and the Facit trade exhibition are three fixtures that drive the Malaysian fashion event calendar.
