In conjunction with the upcoming 11.11, global fashion e-tailer, SHEIN spotlights Malaysian homegrown talents through the SHEIN X program. Among the SHEIN X collection with local Malaysian designers are Miriam Omar, Tan Li Wen, Brian Khoo, Valerie Hsin, Carson Wong, Sherwan Rozwan and Laven L. Shoppers can check out and support these 7 homegrown designers online at SHEIN.
Miriam Omar is a Malaysian artist and designer based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Inspired by landscapes, nature, people and textiles, her works are vibrant with color, textural and often depict culture in South East Asia. Miriam dabbled in the arts firstly through illustrating fashion and portraits.
After developing her signature style, her work then evolved to textile design, furniture design, paintings, illustrations and wall murals.
Li Wen is a fashion designer. She loves all things vibrant and maximalism. Loud prints and colour contrast have always been her favourite and that is how this collection was created. Following the theme of the SHEIN X 100K Challenge ‘BE BOLD, BE YOU’, the theme reminds her of her personality, where she won the Most Creative Award.
Her collection is designed using different types of prints like houndstooth, polka dots and plaids to represent all the complicated thoughts and minds that are in her head.
Brian is a fashion designer who has worked with various fashion labels in China, Malaysia, Australia and France. He is appointed as the official designer for Miss Universe Malaysia Organization in creating the national costume and evening gowns for Samantha Katie James. He was invited to showcase his collection in Mercedes Benz Fashion Week KL and ZhongYuan Fashion in 2019. At the SHEIN X 100K Challenge, he won the Voter Choice Award.
His collection is inspired by strong women who are confident and not afraid of making a statement with their clothes and expressing themselves in the modern world.
Valerie is passionate about creating and expressing creativity through her art, her dream is to bring freedom and happiness into the world. Anyone and anywhere she met and went is what inspires her to be right where she is now.
Inspired by the scent of coffee ground and contemporary minimalistic design, Valerie hopes to bring comfort and confidence to those who wear her pieces, through a capsule collection that’s easy and fun to style with.
Carson is a graduate from School of Fashion Design. He spent nearly 6 years learning art and loves painting on clothing in different ways. Carson learnt how to design street art graffiti and also elegant RTW. He focuses on the current high-end and high-street fashion markets’ trend.
Working his collection around the design rationale of “Loneliness”, the use of multiple shades of grey and accents expresses one’s desire towards a colourful world although living in despair.
Sherwan Rozan is a Graphic Artist from Johor Bahru, Malaysia. Drawn to overlooked details in spaces, structures and objects that would otherwise seem mundane, Sherwan contemplates these trivialities and conceptually constructs them as his subjects in an almost compulsive manner to bring into being his own abstract interpretation.
He creates these metaphorical spaces and patterns as a way of inviting the viewer into his frame of thought processes and ideas.
With chic and elegance as her design aesthetic focus, Malaysian fashion designer Laven Lim is skilled in textile & batik design as well. She won several fashion awards and invitations to showcase her collections in various countries.
Inspired by the beautiful lavender flower blooms in Plateau de Valensole, this collection brings silhouettes that are feminine, chic and relevant to wear daily for ladies.
The platform will showcase the designer’s creations and brand to the massive SHEIN global consumer base, while highlighting each of their unique and stylish brand identities. SHEIN works closely with the designers and guides them from the inception phase to sampling, production, and distribution.
