18 years of passion
Posted by: Phat Mama, 13-Dec-2009Fashion is all about style and grace for Malaysian designer Carven Ong. His recently launched Spring/Summer 2010 Couture Collection featured elegant eveningwear fit for the modern brides, celebrities doing the red carpet as well as women who want to be the centre of attraction at a grand ballroom dance event.

The evening kicked off with a cocktail dinner at the foyer of the Grand Ballroom of Prince Hotel Kuala Lumpur. There was no mad rush to start the fashion showcase as scheduled as a majority of KLites making their way to the function were caught in the Friday evening traffic congestion.

Carven shot to stardom after his debut appearance at the MODA Wanita Fashion Show 18 years ago. Today he is the principle of Carven Academy of Fashion, which opened in 1991. The designer opened Carven Ong Couture and Wedding Specialist boutique located at a prime location in Lot 10, Kuala Lumpur in 2004. The boutique has since moved to its new home at Prince Hotel Kuala Lumpur.
