First of all, could you tell us about yourself and your brand ?
If I were to describe myself, I’ll call myself a silent designer.Silent is my personality. I refrain from explaining who I am and what I am doing as silence is more eloquent than words. My view and thoughts are mainly conveyed through my designs and drawings in my brand.

Lots of students who want to be a designer often worry about how to begin their first steps in the fashion field. What were the first steps you took in the world of fashion?
The first step was definitely identifying which direction I am heading towards and what I would envision for my brand.

What has been happening in your career? in Malaysia or internationally ?
Currently I’ve only started my career in Malaysia. My main line Justin Chew along with my basic line which are both stock in “Thisappear” a shop I founded with another designer.

I saw your this fashion week collection , it was absolutely brilliant !  How was it for yourself? satisried or not??
Yes definitely. I am really satisfied with this collection. This debut collection was what I have always been preparing for. Being able to finally debut my own label and showing who I really am along with the direction I am heading for after all the hard work placed into it. It is also really exciting for me to have finally begin what I’ve always wanted and I am so looking forward to the future.

Actually, most of all fashion lovers do not know about klfw  .. what do you think of it ?
I think it’s a really good platform for young designers to showcase their collection to an audience. It allows and open up new opportunity for any new designers who are interested in releasing their own collection to showcase in a proper environment similiar to other international fashion week. The experience I obtained from preparation, backstage to the actual runway is really valuable.

What’s the inspiration behind your current / upcoming Collection?
My current collection “The Evolvement” was based on reconstructing the 90s hip hop items. A mixture of sporty clean cut to printed graffiti. For my upcoming collection, I will still follow up with clean cuts along with prints. However I would to incorporate more sports wear element into it.

Where do you find your inspiration?
A lot of my inspirations are from the music I listen to. However, I also get inspirations from photos I come across and those that I capture with my phone throughout my daily life.

Where do you see your career going next ?
I would hope stabilized my brand and then expand into other countries and to participate in trade shows.

One thing I love about fashion is that there is still a capacity for amazing surprises! Do you feel the same way about what you do?
Definitely. In fashion, it’s all about expressing yourself. A similiar concept used by two different person will always result in different outcomes. It’s all about who we are and incorporating it into fashion. Everybody is different in their own ways, which makes fashion filled with surprises.

As you know, 12:30 magazine is focused on discovering new faces, especially designers and artists.Do you feel there is significant interest for young designers, especially unknown globally yet, at this moment in time?
Yes, as being discovered would give young designers who are yet to be known globally a chance for them to be exposed to a wider market and for their work to be recognised globally.

Could you tell me about your designer friends and do you have any designers to recommend?
I would say that the fashion scene in Malaysia is growing rapidly with many new emerging designer. One designer friend that I would highly recommend is Joe Chia, the partner of my fashion store “Thisappear” in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.




Kuala Lumpur fashion week 2014





Kuala Lumpur Fashion week 2014 took place on 18- 22 June. We know, it may be that it sounds like unfamiliarity and strange a bit, yet. But no one can doubt that it is getting interesting. Our brilliant friend Nicholas, who is a street fashion photographer based in Malaysia, was there to captured their best outfits.




Offering frequent updates on the Asian fashion street style scene, Garbage Lapsap reads like a comic of style. Both genders are well-represented here showcasing the signature Malaysian style of comfortable chic.It’s easy to discount Asian style especially when compared with our fashionable neighbours but as we can see through the pictures at GarbageLapsap, style is indeed within our genes, even if it’s a subtler and slightly simpler take on everyday fashion.

Catalogo necora web copy 2




Nécora was established in 2012 in Mexico city, Mexico. We are a jewelry company and our mission is to create a mixture of high complexity shapes and tolerances that are not able to be produced any other way, and traditional jewelry craftsmanship in each of the pieces we design. This mixture let us create elaborate and complex designs using state of the art 3D printers and hand finished pieces using traditional methods.
We take the 3D printing capacities to its limit but always leaving the final details to the craft master.

Our goal is to introduce new shapes to the jewelry world, introduce the people to the new technologies and how these can work together with traditional craft techniques to create, modern and beautiful pieces.
