ABOUT THE LUMINARIES:
Award-winning Malaysian designer of natural dye textiles, fashion and crafts. Ong is an author, curator and president of a number of prestigious organisations, as well as being a trained architect who has designed several landmarks such as the Sarawak Cultural Village and the Kuching International Airport. His interest in the heritage has inspired him to write extensively on the topic as well as pioneering new textile designs and working with multi-disciplinary Sarawakian artists. His personal designs combine contemporary silhouettes with traditional Borneo motifs. Ong’s work goes beyond just conserving traditional textile practices, by creating something new and inspiring, promoting and encouraging the role of craft in society today.
