The Malaysian International Fashion Alliance (MIFA) heralded the return of Malaysia International Fashion Week 2009 (M-IFW’09) by announcing Andrea Fonseka as the Face of M-IFW’09 at an inaugural party held at Aristo, Zouk recently.
According to MIFA Chief Executive Officer, Syeba Yip, the said event was the first in a series of exciting parties aimed at building up the excitement among avid fashion followers, sponsors and event partners in the run-up to M-IFW’09 which will be held from November 4 – 8, 2009 at the Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.
Syeb Yip continued, “MIFA is pleased to welcome back Andrea Fonseka to the Malaysian fashion scene as the Face of M-IFW’09. Her sterling achievements and versatile talents transcend the fashion and entertainment fields in Malaysia and Singapore. Besides being a highly sought-after model, she is now a TV host and an actress to boot.”
Since the M-IFW’09 party coincided with Andrea’s 25th birthday, the MIFA team presented her with a four-tier cake (sculptured by myself) and a Roxy bikini. Maxis as the Main Presenter of M-IFW’09 surprised her with an iPhone while Pernod Ricard as the Official Liquor Partner of M-IFW’09 gave her a bottle of Chivas.
