Besides that, this event was also the biggest Fashion Week Sale in Malaysia that was open to the public from 2pm-10pm.

This event was a collaborated with Malaysia's trade promotion agency MATRADE, Mercedes-Benz Asia Fashion Week & Malaysia's leading fashion organiser STYLO International.  And was also supported by Malaysia Ministry of International Trade and Industry. It's the first time ever that our country actually have MFW in partnership with the government sector along with a number of private sectors. It was honestly one of the biggest fashion event I have ever attended.
