“With the right pair of shoes, she can conquer the world”
International singer song writer Yuna Zarai, better known as Yuna joins forces with Malaysian Shoe & Handbag designer, Christy Ng to produce a limited line of accessories which reflect her personal style and artistic direction. The collaboration aims to produce high quality comfortable designer shoes & bags at affordable price points attainable to all women globally. The entire collection is competitively priced below RM199.00 and proudly produced and handmade in Malaysia. The collection is also Yuna’s first endeavor into the shoe & handbag industry.
Yuna’s initial exposure came through the viral success of her music uploaded to Myspace which received over one million plays. This online success alerted the Indie-Pop label/management company to her music, and in early 2011 she signed with the Fader Label. She is best known for the collaboration with Usher on her breakout single, “Crush” which peaked at number 3 on the US Billboard Adult R&B chart.
Malaysia has always been the number 1 footwear making center in South East Asia, sometimes also dubbed as the Italy of Asia and this collection pays tribute to the Malaysian footwear making industry and heritage as we celebrate the many achievements of Malaysians globally.
The theme of the night is “Titanium” also symbolic to representing “ Wanita Besi” woman in leadership position, and woman pushing the limits and boundaries in society. The theme is inspired by the hardships persevered by both woman in defying the norm and how society stereotypes the role of a woman. The duo hopes to see more woman follow their dreams and peruse their ambitions against all odds and critics and to stay true to what you believe in.
The event was held last 5 January 2019 at Bukit Bintang City Centre Sales Gallery (BBCC) Sales Gallery where guests and other local celebrities previewed the collection and were surprised by a mesmerizing performance by Yuna herself and healthy snacks prepared by Salad Atelier.
