Fashion Industry Master Class at Curtin University with Jimmy Choo
World acclaimed shoe designer and fashion icon Professor Datuk Jimmy Choo will fly into Perth with Malaysia Airlines for a fashion industry master class at Curtin University on 9th April 2015.
This one-off event will be followed on Friday 10th April by ‘The Fashion Tank’, a special event where Professor Choo will join a panel of fashion experts offering selected students the opportunity to present examples of their work for advice and feedback.
This collaboration is a further opportunity for Malaysia Airlines to bring Malaysia and Australia closer following the recent successful partnerships with Malaysian-born celebrity cook Poh Ling Yeow and up and coming Australian tennis ace Nick Kyrgios whose mother is from Malaysia.
In announcing the event, Regional Senior Vice President of Malaysia Airlines, Mr PK Lee, said the collaboration with the fashion legend is a result of two parties sharing a common heritage, as well as a desire to achieve excellence and develop long-lasting ties between nations.
He said “Both countries recognise that their economic futures are tied to each other and connecting our continents has always been a significant goal for Malaysia Airlines,” and further added that “Our Malaysian heritage is of great importance to us and we believe the face to face with Professor Choo not only gives students the opportunity to pick the brains of one of Malaysia’s most successful industry leaders, but demonstrates how hard work and determination can bring our countries closer together.”
In supporting comments, Professor Choo said Malaysia Airlines’ native roots and reputation for excellence in hospitality is one of the key reasons he chooses to fly with the premium carrier.
“I’m really proud of my Malaysian culture and Malaysia Airlines is very close to my heart. I’ve flown with them for many, many years and I’m a longstanding member of their Enrich frequent flyer program. I’ve always associated the airline with home and I feel proud to be considered a friend of the airline.”
Malaysia Airlines offers 81 flights a week direct to Malaysia from Australia and New Zealand with Kuala Lumpur as the hub to more than 60 destinations worldwide. Malaysia Airlines operates the state of the art A380 twice daily to London and daily to Paris.
