According to Datuk Nancy Yeoh, Chairman of MFW Festival, “The MFW Festival is introduced for the First Time (as 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 things 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’”.
