In The Pink With Sonny San

It’s the pink month of the year once again! This year’s Pink Project sees a collaboration with seven of Malaysia’s most prominent designers to promote awareness for breast cancer. Sonny San for Eclipse, Sereni & Shentel, Bowerhaus, InnaiRed, Celest Thoi, Alia Bastamam and Melinda Looi have all been incredibly supportive on our journey to pledge breast cancer awareness nationwide. BAZAAR speaks to the designers on their style and what the colour pink truly means to them.

What does the colour pink mean to you?

Pink is femininity and good health.

How does your design also represent your style as a local designer?

My designs are usually very minimalist in style but this year I wanted the ribbon to be a little more embellished hence the addition of crystals and stones.

What were you thinking of when designing the pink ribbon for the campaign this year?

How should a woman feel when wearing your design?

Women should feel very empowered, and ready to take on the world!

Do you have any close friends/family members who’ve encountered breast cancer? How did it feel providing support and egging them on?

My aunt recently died of breast & liver cancer due to late diagnosis. It was difficult to witness her last few days; the pain and agony was unbearable. Early detection and control is essential for all the women out there.
