PRAGUE: It was a nice finishing touch to a night of glamour and style – the Malaysian flag “flying” on the runway of Mercedes Benz Prague Fashion Weekend.
The presence of the Jalur Gemilang capped a successful showing by Malaysian designers Jovian Mandagie and Phuna Boon Yi, whose creations closed the premier fashion event in the Czech Republic capital on Sunday night.
Jovian and Phuna were invited as guest designers after winning the Mercedes Benz Stylo Fashion Awards for Designer of the Year and Emerging Designer of the Year respectively in March in Kuala Lumpur.
Phuna, a first year fashion design student, presented a noteworthy 12-piece collection while multi-award winning Jovian lit up the runway with 24 pieces, mostly comprising richly embellished evening gowns.
The Prague Fashion Weekend also played host to renowned shoe designer, Malaysian Datuk Jimmy Choo, who was a guest of honour at the event.
Also present were president and CEO of Stylo International Datuk Nancy Yeoh, Mercedes Benz Czech Republic CEO Florian Muller and Mercedes Benz Malaysia general manager, marketing communications Elaine Hew.
This was the second annual international fashion exchange since Mercedes-Benz Malaysia and Stylo entered into the World Fashion Initiative in 2011.
The first exchange was held in Mexico City last year.
Top Asian fashion designers, buyers, media and celebrities from over 10 countries will congregate in Malaysia for this inaugural trade event in November which will be hosted at the Resorts World Genting.
