New Straits Times: Khoon Hooi dresses actress for Golden Globes
Malaysian designer Khoon Hooi is making waves in Hollywood, with a dress from his eponymous brand spotted on the Golden Globes red carpet this morning.
Actress Karen Pittman, who stars in the Best Television Series - Drama nominee The Morning Show, wore a strapless, full-length feathered gown with orange ombre effect. According the brand’s Instagram account, the piece is called Bianca from Hooi’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection.
The show, which also stars Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, lost the award to Succession.
Meanwhile, earlier in the weekend, actress Ginnifer Goodwin who was previously on the TV series Once Upon A Time, wore a brocade, one-shouldered Khoon Hooi dress for an industry event in Los Angeles.
This comes after singer Katy Perry was spotted on the red carpet wearing a yellow Khoon Hooi creation for a Christmas ball in early December.
The affable Hooi has been a fashion designer for more than 20 years and has a boutique in Bangsar. He is known for using vibrant colours and structured, voluminous designs which he embellishes with beads and feathers.
