DESIGN STATEMENT :
‘Adventurous’ is established within the archetypes of an explorer who seeks to make discovery within the man-made world and nature evolved around themselves. The collection is about coming up with new innovative print designs which are extended from combining hard structured fabrication to a softer silhouette that creates bold elements but with a subtle touch of femininity. By rendering architectural manipulation of skyscraper prints onto fabric, adding softer fabric manipulation to represent the motion of water flows in rockpools. The characteristic of each piece is about manipulating bold frames and structural shapes which comes with the vision of a powerful woman who takes on challenges from this society but she also has the freedom of expressing her own identity.
