As the name suggests, twelve Malaysian designers / brands are housed and stocked in the store. The selection criteria of these twelve labels are the wearability and commercial viability of their designs. All of them have ample production capability to provide sufficient products and merchandise for sale at the store and they are fully ready to export their designs. They are currently actively trading with buyers overseas through www.fashionista.my
