AirAsia Runway Ready Designer Search 2017

I am definitely not a fashionista, a model or a fashion designer but AirAsia gave me the opportunity to attend the runway presentation of the AirAsia Runway Ready Designer Search 2017 Grand Finale during the Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week Ready To Wear 2017 (KLFW RTW 2017) last week.

Of course I said yes. Other than to see the creativity of the young designers, I looked forward to meeting the ultimate girl boss, Aireen Omar. Met her last year and she's soooo nice! #fangirl
Oh and then, there's Vivy Yusof, everybody's favorite girl.

The annual designer search was established with the aim of empowering youth and developing young talents in the fashion industry across the region. The Grand Finale saw a total of 20 young talents from all 10 Asean countries. All of them were the top 2 talents from each country, selected during the region wide audition tour across Asean.

Tran Thi Tu from Vietnam was announced as the grand winner and walked away with prizes worth RM350,000 including a confirmed slot at next year's KLFW RTW to showcase her full collection, a year-long mentorship from KLFW RTW team, sponsorship by FashionValet to produce her collection to be sold on FashionValet website, 150,000 AirAsia BIG points (ohh I'm soo jealous!), a 6-page fashion spread in AirAsia's Travel3Sixty inflight magazine, a special feature in Female Malaysia magazine and a pair of AirAsia return flights. Such lucky girl!

AirAsia BIG Loyalty Programme and FashionValet are proud sponsors of AirAsia Runway Ready Designer Search 2017.
