Pearly Wong is Corum’s latest Friend of the Brand
With a fashion portfolio that includes dressing celebrities such as Ellie Goulding and Grimes, as well as features in international publications, Pearly Wong is an exceptional fashion designer. Her artistic flair and outstanding design skills resonate well with the spirit of Corum, whose Bubble timepieces showcase youthful imagination and innovative features.
"Here in Corum, we are continually in search of great talents, providing endless support and cultivating a promising platform for the future," said the General Manager of Corum in a press statement.
"Pearly Wong is an exceptional individual who showcased her artistic flair and ability to come up with equally abstract and striking designs and skilfully immortalise them on paper. We are very delighted to have Pearly as our next friend of Corum in South East Asia."
Pearly takes on the role of Friend of the Brand for the Bubble collection, which was first launched in 2000 to the awe of collectors. The Corum Bubble was also the highlight of Buro 24/7 Malaysia's #BuroArtBeat virtual reality exhibition early this year.
"I'm truly honoured to be associated with an iconic brand such as Corum as I love the brand's enigmatic energy and craftsmanship," said the Berlin-based designer.
Pearly is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York in 2012. She then returned to Kuala Lumpur to jumpstart her label with the help of her parents who have been in the fashion retailing business for 15 years. She has since represented Malaysian in the 2014 and 2015 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin and New Zealand Fashion Week in 2016, and is a familiar face in Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week.
