Young designers take flight at KL Fashion Week 2015 BY YAP PIK KUAN FOR THE MALAYSIAN INSIDER

A model struts down the runway wearing a dress flared out to evoke images of Cambodia's historic temples. With its textured fabric and earthy tones, the model walks down the catwalk with modest confidence, a large olive scarf covering her mouth and neck.

The striking design is one of up-and-coming designer Lee Bao En, 22, who was crowned winner of the first ever AirAsia Runway Ready Designer Search earlier today.

Lee, from UCSI, was inspired by the rich history of Cambodia, and wowed both judges and the audience during the finale fashion show which was held on the last day of Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week Ready to Wear 2015.
