Hey love! How you girls doin? I was thinking to write about our own designers and the first name came up in my mind is the one & only Dato’ Bernard Chandran! I was so excited to write about him because he’s totally a freaking awesome designer.
I bet there’s a lot of Malaysian that didn’t know who is Bernard Chandran. Well people seriously you have some major issue in here…haha kidding! Okay this is the brief story about him. Dato’ Bernard Chandran was born in 27 February 1968, is a Malaysian fashion designer. His talents have earned him many faithful clients among Malaysia’s elite most notably the Royal families of Malaysia and Brunei as well as two former Miss Universe. Due to this, Bernard Chandran used to be known as Malaysia’s “Prince Of Fashion”, but is now being hailed as Malaysia’s “King Of Fashion”.
After graduating from the Paris American Academy, Bernard Chandran became the first non European to win the coveted Silk, Cut Young Designers Award and the Open European Contest for Look of the Year 2000 in 1991. Two years later, he returned home and launched his own line of clothing. In 2005, his first Autumn/Winter 2006 Ready-To-Wear collection was showcased at the London Fashion Weekend and since then, Bernard Chandran pieces have caught the eye of celebrities including the likes of Lady Gaga and Estelle, who wore his designs when she won her first Grammy at the Grammy Awards in 2009.
