If you are anything like me, you know very little about Malaysian fashion apart from the fact that we don’t do too bad in fashion design. At the very least our Jimmy Choos have protected the feet of many-a-celebrity, including the Queen of England. If you’re smart you might even know Zang Toi has his own cafes and that Bernard Chandran has done really well for himself in the U.K.
But it seems that there is a lot more to homegrown fashion than most of us realize, as we found out on the night of the 2011 SWEPA installation. If you were not previously aware, the man they call the “King of Malaysian Couture,” Mr. Albert King designs some of the most exciting wearable frocks that are glamorously romantic, yet has a bit of an edge to it.
Albert King has been in fashion design for 30 years. From working in the Macca Couture House to designing for Metrojaya, his experience speaks in his pieces. King decided to go solo in 1984 and has never looked back ever since.
So what does it take to get a dress made from King? A few thousand ringgit and up, depending on the requirements (circa US$1,000+). For the quality that you get that’s considered pretty affordable by couture standards.
So if you’re looking to custom-design that christmas cocktail dress or new year’s eve gown, your wedding gowns (night and day) or for a gala, Albert King is definitely worth looking into.
As always, our request is that you tell Mr. King you found him on KKMOI.COM! Happy posing ladies!
