Taking charge of the panel of course were five esteem judges; Aireen Omar, CEO of AirAsia Berhad, Andrew Tan, Founder of KLFW RTW, fashion designers Jovian Mandagie and Khoon Hooi and the editor of Malaysia's best-selling Malay lifestyle magazine - Eh!.  Each were tougher than the next and after an intense final round of judging, the conclusion finally came to a close.

However before we press on; let's give a big round of applause to the Top 10 for each showcase was just as amazing as the next. So much so that one lucky finalist was also selected by Jovian Mandagie to continue to gain real fashion experience with him and his team. Below is a handful of the notable designs that walked the runway, so take a look.

The Showcase of AirAsia Runway Designer Search Finale 2015

Ter Mei Ching from Esmod Kuala Lumpur

The pairing of this design from Ter Mei Ching is just amazingly tres chic. At just 20 years old, her combination of colors and silhouettes is just eminent. Plus seeing that the inspiration for her collection came after the national landmark of Penang Bridge, I would say that this is simply spot on.

Syamil Fazwan from UiTM Shah Alam
Shazmin Hashim from UiTM Shah Alam

The silent beauty of this subtle pattern came from Shazmin Hashim who circled her collection around nature destruction and deforestation issues in Asia. Using white as her main color backdrop, Shazmin combines her range with simple artistic designs which gives her apparels a more personal touch.

Hazimin Norzaili from UiTM Shah Alam
Lee Bao En from UCSI University

This one was definitely the most interesting out of the entire bunch. Giving a little mystery to her collection, Lee Bao En is not one to play safe and covers her range with the beauty of Angkor Wat and Khmer people in Cambodia. Her fabric choices hits very close to home and her hues definitely suits her theme very well.
