Recent years have seen a rise in the prominence of Asian designers worldwide. From names like Jason Wu and Alexander Wang to local design powerhouses like Dato’ Bernard Chandran and Datuk Zang Toi. There is no debate that the spotlight is falling on creative minds with Asian heritage and inspirations.
Throw in the explosion of international popularity that is currently being experienced by the Korean and Japanese fashion and design worlds, and it may even be safe to say that Asia is becoming the world’s go-to place for all things fashion.
Aside from a predicted year-on-year increase of 7% on clothing and footwear by Malaysians from 2016 to 2018 by BMI, Euromonitor reported in 2013 that Malaysia’s textile and apparel sectors are targeting to reach an annual export value of US$7.5 billion by 2020. More effort is also being devoted to expand the local high-value fashion scene, with a specific focus on the angle of design.
By stitching all these components together, it becomes clear that Malaysia’s fashion and design industry is only beginning to stretch its limbs in the race to the top. This is truly an exciting time to jump into the industry—and MyCreative is more than happy to work with those who resonate with this vision.
