Date: 2nd April 2010.

Location: The Scarlet Fortress, Jalan Sentul Kuala Lumpur.

This year the STYLO Fashion Grand Prix was held at a not so glamorous part of the city – Methodist Boys School (MBS) at Jalan Sentul. The school sports and assembly hall was transformed into a spectacular Scarlet Fortress with scarlet and black as the design theme. More companies and organizations should hold their events in these type of locations so as to promote and bring more economic activities to the area. Furthermore it will channel the traffic away from the city center and bring some night life back to these places.

Overall, the event was a runaway success judging from the lists of celebrities, Malaysia’s top fashion designers, corporate figures, who’s who in Kuala Lumpur and her majesty the queen who graced the opening ceremony. Following are a series of photographs to relive the grand occasion.

Speech by Mr. Peter Honegg, President & CEO of Mercedes-Benz. "Giving speech is like wearing a mini-skirt: Long enough to cover the essential, short enough to be sexy"

Another T-shirts design from Michael Ong.

Well, if you put your mind to it, a lot could be created out of a few T-shirts.

A space-age design from the up and coming designer: Allien Gan

An adaptation from the movie: "Hairy Samurai" - another design by Allien Gan.

The "Pac Woman" has invaded the Earth - Another futuristic design from Allien Gan.

A design from the "block mind" collection? A really mind-boggling creation - only from the very creative amongst us. Thanks to Allien again.

The concept of "empty canvass" on your dress. I like this concept - You are what you wear! It's up to you to paint your mood, your feeling and your outlook towards your environment and your life. Another bright idea from Allien.

The man himself taking a bow. Good job.
