Recently, our team members had the opportunity to view the fashion creations/designs by our alumnus Mr. Mohamad Fadli Bin Bahari. Yes, he has his own fashion label: FADURA. Over the years, his creations have been featured on the catwalks/runways at various events throughout Sarawak. Indeed, we were impressed with his incredible eye for detail and ability to create an impressive range of womenswear including Evening Gowns, Baju Kurung and Baju Kebaya. In summary, his creations are the epitome of beauty, elegance and grace!
Sharing on his ‘Career of Choice’, he highlighted, ‘Since a young age, my personal motto has been ‘Go for it! No matter how it ends, it was an experience!’ This is my guiding principle, as I strive to explore new ideas and even new frontiers in the design of womenswear. For me, the whole process, from initial idea to crafting bespoke clothing, is an exhilarating experience. I work closely with my clients to achieve ‘the perfect fit’ – for me, my ‘work’ is a celebration of craftsmanship and authenticity.’
We note with pride that Mohamad Fadli’s creations are featured regularly during various fashion shows and beauty pageants. For example, a number of the contestants wore his Evening Gowns/Baju Kurung/Baju Kebaya during the following events/ beauty pageants: Miss Grand Mukah 2017, Miss Grand Sarawak 2018 and Miss Tourism Sibu 2018. He is also a professional make-up artist!
Commenting on his studies at Sarawak Skills in Mukah, he shared, “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff members of Sarawak Skills Mukah, including the management, instructors and administrative staff for facilitating my transformation from a Student to a Fashion Designer. My thanks also to the Skills Development Fund Corporation (PTPK) for the financial support during my studies.”
