MKLAV Module

At the end of 2015 we’ve realized that to be able to equip our students with better understanding and application of what they’ve learned, it is best to have our own module.

Many asked which method we use in our module. We gathered different method and approach, made comparison, and did try and error various techniques until we come up with our own module. We compiled what we think practical, easy to understand and most importantly able to equip our student to take it further according to their design ideas.

From time to time, we continue to refine our modules with one objective: to equip our students with quality and practicality in fashion learning that can be applied directly into their business.

Kids Program

Today many children as young as three years old are so preoccupied with gadget that may lead to ‘losing’ their childhood. Hence, we created a program for children to expand their creativity and skills through fashion exploration.

MKLAV Kids Program helps children to develop their skills as an individual in art, sensory and motor through a cognitive learning. Not just as individuals, we also see the importance of children to be a good team player.

Let children explore creativity in their early age through fashion.
