“AirAsia Runway Ready Designer Search is without a doubt one of the most prestigious designer search event in the ASEAN region. With enormous media and industry exposure provided to all the finalists, it has shortened the gap between dreams and reality for those who aim to have their own brand one day,” says Andrew Tan, founder of Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week RTW. “We can’t wait to see all the finalists feature their collections down the runway this August at the KLFW RTW 2017.”
