According to Andrew, all payments for models hired for KLFW2022 will go out on time, as they planned to do months ago before model and celebrity Alicia Amin protested at the event.

As mentioned in a previous statement, I will personally oversee all aspects of Finance. Payment will be made in full to my Model Casting Director in advance to the Fashion Week and all models are paid upon completion of the day.

Andrew also said that all previous payments have been handled and that he will be overseeing finances himself.

He also says that KLFW has a bigger role to play for the Malaysian fashion industry. The 10th year, he said, just marks the beginning, and the organisation has a lot more to develop in terms of a fashion eco-system for the industries.

I started KL FASHION WEEK with nothing. This is a vision of mine to make a name for our country’s designers and I am extremely thrilled to see them grow and prosper.
