"Fashion depicts the personality of peopl while a home similarly, reflects a person's character. Homes and fashion go hand in hand to tell us the identity of a person. My theme of 'reflections of nature' basically shows the trend of people needing to live healthier and in more environmentally-conscious ways today," said the 41-year-old designer, who graduated from RM1T in Australia with a Bachelor of Arts in Fashion in 1996.

Thoo started his career working up the ranks in retail chains like Metrojaya when he first came back from Australia. He then decided to work on his own, specialising in wedding, evening, and cocktail dresses, and formal baju kurung. The signature cut and silhouette of Thoo's clothes has earned him a special place in the fashion industry.
