MELINDA LOOI INITIATIVES
Melinda successfully organized her solo couture fashion show, the Melinda Looi Couture 2023 show, on October 8 at Sentul Depot Workshop 3.
The collection is an explosion of vision and invention inspired by the works of young artist Maya Luebbert, Melinda's daughter. It is a beautiful tale of mother and daughter. It is also a tribute to Malaysian craftsmanship, as well as Pleats by Looi, from which Melinda Looi started her fashion journey. It is a collection to celebrate togetherness and to highlight the collective strength. Fashion isn't just about the designer, it's also about the people who help bring the designer’s vision to life: the weavers, the craftsmen, the enthusiasts, Melinda's family, and her kids. It is to honour those who have contributed to Melinda’s success as a designer for she would not be where she is today without their support over the years.
Through Our Eyes Exhibition: The event will take place on November 1st at Book Xcess, Lalaport. “Great works of art are only great because they are accessible and comprehensible to everyone.” Through Our Eyes is aimed to inspire innovation and creativity within reach of the community. Pieces of the collection as well as artwork from Maya will be displayed and open to the public for viewing at Book Xcess at Lalaport for two weeks.
Charity for Children: This year, in collaboration with Barbie, 476 children are invited to Book Xcess in Lalaport on October 29th and 30th. Many partners, including Uniqlo and Faber Castell have contributed to the event to encourage creativity. In an effort to inspire the future generation, play areas and other activities will be set up at the event to encourage kids to share imaginative stories from Barbie.
Last but not least, Melinda Looi will also be hosting an auction to raise funds for the underprivileged homes.
