The ESMOD Kuala Lumpur graduating batch is back with a stellar fashion show lined up to showcase their masterpieces. The event has happened on 23rd February 2019 at Pentas 2, KLPAC will see to a total of 107 amazing outfits designed and created by the young fashion designers themselves.

The fashion show was made up of two batches of students who conceptualized their pieces based on two themes, ‘Dawn’ and ‘Illogic’. The team behind ‘Dawn’ designed pieces inspired by the end of nightfall which brings light. This signifies the beginning of a new journey. The team behind ‘Dawn’ consists of 9 fashion designers who have put their best foot forward in coming up with stellar designs.

‘Illogic’ was designed by a team of 17 fashion designers. Their showcase contains pieces that exhibit the designers’ personalities and likings. Their theme surrounds the thought that every individual’s personality is mesmerizing; however, when seen together as a whole, it may provoke illogicality.

Upon graduation, these young talents will go out to take the fashion world by storm and this fashion show serves as a prelude to their talents and creativity. In previous years, the past ESMOD KL graduation fashion shows have been a stunning success and we aim to continue providing a platform for the students to proudly exhibit their hard work and knowledge earned over the years.

During the ESMOD KL graduation fashion show, the ESMOD Paris Head of Fashion Design, Paul Marchand, on behalf of ESMOD International, awarded a few prestigious accolades to the top students as a token of appreciation and to honour their hard work thus far. These students have been nominated by their lecturers for their exemplary effort throughout their journey at ESMOD KL.

For batch FD1509 Dawn, the winner of the Best Pattern Making Award is Liew Hui Ying whereas Ivanka Wu won the Best Fashion Design Award. Batch FD1603 winners include Tan Wei Ying for Best Pattern Making Award and the Best Fashion Design Award goes to Edric Wong Huey Yih. The biggest award of the night, the coveted Golden Needle Award, is won by none other than Shawn Er Chao Kin.

It is easy to see that the future is indeed bright for these young fashion designers as they have created not only amazing pieces of fashion but also exceptional works of art in their masterpieces. The next step in their journey to success is to undergo an internship under some of the biggest names in the fashion industry to further enhance their skills. This has been practiced under the ESMOD program in collaboration with ESMOD International over the years.

Our heartiest gratitude to the great sponsors Private Colors, Sense & Style and Mummy Design for helping us pull off yet another spectacular ESMOD KL graduation fashion show.

Indeed, students of ESMOD Kuala Lumpur are always encouraged to challenge themselves by participating in competitions that expose them to real life industry practice to put to test what they have already learnt from ESMOD Kuala Lumpur, which is under the umbrella of the world’s first and oldest fashion school in the world with over 170 years of history! As one of the leading fashion design institutions in the country, ESMOD Kuala Lumpur pledges to provide the best education programme and continues to nurture its students passionately through the world class intensive course of ESMOD Fashion Design & Pattern Making.
