FRIESENGUYS is an emerging Malaysian designer label by Edie Chung.

Designer Bio

Armed with a strong penchant for the arts, Edie Chung was a fashion student at Raffles Institute of Design in Singapore before dropping out to major in English Literature & Theatre Studies. The label started in the designer's bedroom as an outlet of creative expression and soon culminated in an unexpected return to fashion. 

------

Bold, whimsical and unconventionally elegant, FRIESENGUYS was born with the idea of creating a truly androgynous look. The label began by attempting to create menswear but working in reverse, using elements of womenswear as a base. Hand embroidery, soft and embellished textiles and prints have become the brand’s signature. The label continues to offer a selection of menswear, womenswear and gender neutral collections, combining unusual fabric combinations, clash prints and delicate surface decorations.

The Spring/Summer 2019 debut collection was shown privately to buyers and the label has since been stocked at high-profile multi-label stores in Malaysia & Singapore. 

The label suspended it's formal annual collection in 2021 due to the pandemic and focused on releasing capsule collections in its place that were available in-store. 

Emerging from the pandemic - Friesenguys was invited to show its debut runway show with Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Kuala Lumpur at the end of 2021 under collection A/W 2022.
