As an artist I have the interest to explore and support new type of art and artists. And no doubt that I do have interest in fashion as well (Surprise! did you know that?).
So this year I am thrilled to have the opportunity to witness one of Air Asia’s most prestigious event, the official launch of AirAsia Runway Ready Designer Search (AARRDS) 2016 !!
This year, the AirAsia Runway Ready Designer Search (AARRDS) goes regional this year with the competition expanded to include Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore and the Philippines, apart from Malaysia to provide a platform for young aspiring designers from around the region to showcase their talents and help catapult them into the fashion industry. Way to go AirAsia!
I was thrilled that I was actually in front of a fashion runway! (My first time)

AARRDS was officially launched by Ms Aireen Omar, Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia Berhad in Kuala Lumpur today together with Mr Andrew Tan, Founder of KLFW RTW (Photosa below):
