Sadness swelled across various social media platforms yesterday as many Malaysians learned of the passing of veteran fashion designer Sonny San who suffered a heart attack yesterday morning. The 54-year-old was best known for being the founder and managing director of renowed ready-to-wear luxury label Eclipse which began in 1996. Tributes began pouring yesterday evening when the news of his passing came to light and the man was remembered for being talented, kind and humble. 











Today I received really sad news that Sonny San passed away. I never got the chance to be close to him but it always put a smile on my face to open Instagram to a lovely comment from him like the one just this morning. Seeing him at events with that playful boyish smile he would give me and never failing to come up and say hello and have a chat, it always made me feel warm inside. Not many ppl we meet nowadays are genuine in friendship and kindness but even though I didn't know you as well as I would have loved to, I knew always that you were one of those special ones. I am deeply saddened and wish I could have had a closer friendship with you that I know many had the honour of having. Rest in peace dear Sonny and maybe I will have the chance to have that friendship with you on the other side when the time comes. #RIP #SonnySan
