Malek Prada


What is your name? My name is Malek. I am a production designer; I work in advertising as well as designing sets for theatre production, styling and doing graphic design. I had a salon in 1986. That’s when I first started to do styling and hair editorial work. This is way before Photoshop existed.

Tell me more about your background and life... I was born in Perak, the Northern state of West Malaysia. I lived in London from 1979 to 1986, where I studied hairdressing at Robert Fielding of London at Baker Street.

Are you a cool kid? I don’t think I’m a cool person - more of a passionate 54-year-old man... but beautiful people with depth inspire me.
