Our fashion industry has just lost one of its most prestigious talents, Sonny San, who passed away on the morning of Oct 16 due to a heart attack.
The 54-year-old Malaysian pioneer, who founded the ready-to-wear luxury label Eclipse in 1996, has showcased his designs in numerous international and local runways, most recently during the KL Fashion Week in August. Sonny is also no stranger to the many celebrities who have been dressed in his feminine yet relaxed style.
Today, we look back at a few celebrities who have worn his designs on different occasions.

I saw this quote and absolutely loved it ✨ – Attract what you expect Reflect what you desire Mirror what you admire Become what you respect – The most successful people I know are true testament of this – they have beautiful thoughts and a respectful attitude. It's not about being humble, but about being grateful. 🙏🏼❤️ – A huge congratulations to Malaysian designers Sonny San of Eclipse and Jimmy Lim for the beautiful show tonight! 👗💃🏻😘 #klfw Here with @amberchia both wearing @eclipsebysonnysan 🌹
