Annie Wong is a Paris and London trained fashion designer who specialized in haute couture designs and dazzling gowns. She has early experience working with Yves St. Laurent upon her completion of studies and moved back to Malaysia in the 1970s. She has been the designer behind several boutiques and her own label Annie Wong Couture in the past and started developing her own fashion based education programmes not long after her return to Malaysia as she found it difficult to hire professional dressmakers at that time.
This led to the early start of what was to become IFTC today. As an integrated fully focused design institution offering professional fashion programmes only, the IFTC curriculum is a refined French adapted teaching programme geared at providing students with the best of European style design and cutting skills coupled with an open creative programme that is centered on practicality and attaining skills required to learn and master fashion creation.
Annie Wong has refined and updated the curriculum with the IFTC team over the years to suit the latest development in trends and style. Today, Annie Wong solely focuses on helping talented young designers achieve their goals and career aspirations in the fashion line by providing guidance, vast experience and passing on her skills and knowledge through IFTC programmes and promoting fashion as a wonderful vocation.
