Broken Sovereign

This graceful outfit is designed with Tang Dynasty and Malaysian Chinese culture in mind. As they all know that Malaysia is a multi-racial country, so this outfit is tailored to specifically reflect the problem in their society. Nowadays, some of Malaysian Chinese don’t even know how to speak Chinese, or even write their own name in Chinese. So in this collection, the outfit is telling them never to forget their mother tongue and most importantly, who they are and what they represent.

Bamboo lattice

In Vietnam, we see the bamboo lattice technique in many products such as boats, furniture, chicken cages, lanterns... Bamboo lattice is strong, inexpensive, and easy to make. My vision is to create a resort wear fashion that is exciting and graceful, sophisticated and charming.

My designs combine tradition with modern form, the hardness of the lattice pattern and sand softness of fine fabrics. My focus is on form and details, bringing charm and feminineness to the wearer.

Playtime

Playtime exists at the intersection of fashion design and interactive technologies. It references two key scenes of Tati’s film. Playtime explores the concept of transformation.
