Shades of red ranging from the crimson of blood to the scarlet of flames coloured the creations of PJ College of Art & Design (PJCAD)’s Fashion Design students in a spell-binding display named The Day of God’s Wrath.
17 young designers under the masterful tutelage of fashion maestro Es Azren, Head of Fashion & Industry at PJCAD, have produced a collection of avant-garde apparel inspired by apocalyptic imagery in popular media and mythology.
Their creations, a line of women’s wear with matching headgear and footwear, consist of dresses and attires that are luxurious, elegant, feminine and sensual all at once. The intensity of colours and styles mirrors the highly-charged theme of the event.
“It is thrilling to see how the students introduced their vision of the apocalypse by using hues usually associated with conflict and chaos,” said Es Azren, Head of Fashion & Industry at PJCAD. “They are bringing new perspectives and outlooks to the local fashion scene with their highly innovative and exciting creations.”
One of Malaysia’s premier specialist private art and design institutions, PJCAD nurtures and guides every student until their inherent potential is unlocked with creative input from its team of industry-trained instructors who ensure that every student will become versatile, adaptable and able to understand the volatile demands of the industry.

“At PJCAD, we demolish the mental barriers of these young designers and open new dimensions for them to explore, while consistently exposing and encouraging them to experiment through which they learn the aspects of designing through visual judgment,” said Es Azren.
He added that this method ensures that students will have a firm foundation in research, design methodology and practical skills in drawing, communications and fashion design.
