Tom Abang Saufi


This is a woman with many talents, but she still manages to keep it real. She may not be famous in Europe and US, she is based in Kuala Lumpur - Malaysia. She works with Batiks and her style is just so fluid, its freedom. I love looking at her designs and the delicate details on them. I have not been privileged yet to own any of designs but i am looking, since she is not solely based in the UK, her line is not readily available here.

She is a very beautiful woman and one thing i have noticed about her is the way she adds elegance to her designs. I just love her. She studied fashion at... none other...London College of Fashion in UK, i think in the late 80s.
I missed an exhibition or seminar she did at the Malaysian consulate (somewhere like that) some months ago, but i am still hoping she will be in the UK again and ...soon.
I know i have been showcasing African designs but then she has been one of my inspirations and i would like others to know i find her very inspiring. here are a few of her designs:

She has an outlet in UK. One of our biggest names in the fashion industry in Malaysia, and also in the batik industry where she combines batik with fashion. Known for her role of bringing contemporary batik to the high society with her famous trademark of spirals.

We featured her in our book, Batik Inspirations, as we thought she is inspiring and we hope to give her another platform to inpsire through her beautiful works.
