“The MFW Festival is introduced for the First Time today (a B2C and B2B Show) though we have run the MFW Trade Show (B2B Show) for the past 6 years. It is a sneak peek of greater creative tings to come – art, beauty, music, dance, food, fashion and architecture housed within the STYLO brand. STYLO has been synonymous with the F1, supercars, helicopters, beauty queen and all forms of ‘celebrity-hood’, says Datuk Nancy Yeoh, Chairman of MFW Festival.
