IN a bold and exciting move, Limkokwing University of Creative Technology is taking part in London Fashion Week 2018.
Chosen by a distinguished panel of judges, it is the only private Asian university to be invited to the showcase.
Selecting “Date Night” as the theme, the collection is a reflection of a cool, hip, attitude that couples in Asia and Africa possess on a date night out.
The design team found inspiration for their global collections through a creative journey carried out to places as far as Botswana, Swaziland, Kenya, Iran, Indonesia, Cambodia, Thailand, China, India, Maldives and Borneo.
A team of students and alumni will showcase their talent at Freemasons Hall, a stunning art décor masterpiece in London, that will host some of the industry’s most influential players today.
Under the direction of Vice President of Brand, Creativity, and Talent Development Datuk Tiffanee Marie Lim, the university has become a staple in the world’s fashion scene.
For more than 10 years, the university has been showcasing world-class collections in Paris, Osaka, Chengdu, Jakarta, Singapore, Cambodia, Botswana and Malaysia.
Limkokwing University of Creative Technology empowers its students by using education in developing their raw talents and skills.
It has a long tradition of training the next generation of leaders with global competitiveness in creativity and making them to be the most employable graduates.
Students are being put through tough assessments with creativity being the driving force.
As an example, fashion students are given the platforms to showcase their flexibilities in adapting different trends through weekly fashion shows happening every Thursday at the university.
For some of the students, London Fashion Week will be their first chance to show their own work along world class names on the runway.
London Fashion Week has become a part of the curriculum for the university’s fashion design, sound design and event management students.
Through the university’s in-house label, Limkokwing Fashion Club, students are given the opportunity to come up with ideas and create global innovations.
In the field of innovation, there could be nobody better than Malaysian icon and educationist Tan Sri Lim Kok Wing.
He has repeatedly demonstrated the spirit of innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship that enhances the university’s academics by creating a collaborative hub of innovation for the students, faculty and peers.
