Melinda Looi was invited to represent Malaysia in the ‘Sakura Collection 2014 in OSAKA which will was held on October 26 & 31, 2014 at the KANSAI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT and OSAKA CASTLE respectively.
Using her creative license, Melinda Looi made the artistic choice to blend traditional Japanese fabric with Malaysian Batik, which is well known for its vibrant colors and brush painting method.
The multi award winning designer Looi, put a modern twist on the traditional through her use of mismatching tone prints, sparkling crystals, embellished beads, hand-sewn embroidery and sophisticated patchwork. The outcome is a bold new collection embracing the best of Japanese
and Malaysian traditions all painstakingly embellished in true Melinda Looi style.
The collection is a symbol of Japanese-Malaysian solidarity, cooperation and friendship.
