Attended by the many powerhouses of fashion, from designers like Diane von Furstenberg and Jason Wu to personalities like Caroline de Maigret and Petra Collins, the #BoF500 gala is one not to be missed.

And within this list of 500, two of Malaysia's very own talents are also included, joining the likes of Christopher Bailey, Karl Lagerfeld and the rest (more below).

Han Chong (Self Portrait)

A name that is all too familiar to us, fashion designer Han Chong of the iconic Self Portrait is one of the two listed in the #BoF500.

Malaysian born and now based in the UK, Han Chong has always been one of our favourites.

From Lily Collins and Reese Witherspoon to Aimee Song and Jourdan Dunn, Han has dressed some of the biggest stars in fashion and entertainment.

And he is not the only Malaysian listed!

Tracy Sun (Poshmark)

A known tech entrepreneur based in the San Francisco, Malaysian born Tracy Sun is the founder of Poshmark, one of largest peer-to-peer fashion resale platforms.

BoF 500 aside, Tracy has also been named "Top Female Tech Founder" by USA Today and TechCrunch, and named amongst the "Woman Making Waves in Tech" by Refinery29, recognised for her work in fashion technology.

To date, she has raised over US$ 70 million in funding for Poshmark and the platforms boats of over 2.5 million users.
