Thirty years on, Carven Ong still loves the challenge of couture

Carven Ong's career in fashion has spanned decades.

Who would have thought that Carven Ong started out teaching fashion? That was his first job 31 years ago. But from there, the man has managed to capture the attention of fashion lovers in Malaysia as a designer.

He has had his creations featured in the 2018 Hollywood hit Crazy Rich Asians. He was also put under the spotlight when his design became part of a big drama on the Miss Universe pageant stage last year.
