KUALA LUMPUR -- Abharuddin Aziz aka Qudyn is a talented fashion designer who can do magic with fabrics. His intricate designs and colourful creations are very much sought after by local and foreign celebrities, including the 'in' crowd who regularly make a beeline to the ‘Qudyn Boutique’ located in Cheras.

Qudyn used to mainly deal in wedding dress and outfit but now his shop provides head-to-toe clothing apparel and accessories for the ‘young at heart’, the middle-aged trendsetter, the trendy teenagers, right down to tiny tots.

"Teenaged girls, including those who wear the hijab, should not shy away from being stylish and fashionable. They should seek professional advice on how to project a confident image of themselves," he said.

Having had the honour of designing local celebrity Rozita Che Wan’s wedding dress, including providing the stage wardrobes for Rozita, Datuk Siti Nurhaliza and Erra Fazira, the Alor Setar-born clothier is no stranger to celebrities. His list of clientele includes foreign artistes from Singapore, Brunei, Denmark and Australia.

Qudyn who had his early training in fashion design at the National Youth Skill Training Institute (IKBN), did his 8-year apprenticeship under the guidance of renowned designer Datuk Radzuan Radziwill before opening his own boutique in 2008.

Despite this, he believes he still has a lot more to learn from masters of the trade like Datuk Radzuan, Datuk Bernard Chandran and Roberto Cavalli, and would jump at the chance to work with them.
