After that, he worked on three womenswear collections that were showcased during Malaysia International Fashion Week.

With the mindset to explore the world of fashion, Edmund enrolled himself in the Fashion Department at Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Art. With his second year collection, Edmund was spotted by Nicola Formichetti who decided to showcase and sell Edmund’s collection at his pop-up store in New York. Apart from that, he was secured a position at Mugler, where he got to see the business side of fashion. In August 2013 Edmund decided to launch his own brand, with SS15 being his second collection.

This year Edmund was selected by Armani to present his ‪#‎FW15‬ collection at the Armani Teatro in Milan on January 17th, 2015.
