The project is in a way my own story. As an international student, I am one of those frequent travellers. I spent a lot of time travelling from country to country, going home on holiday, staying for a month, and then coming back, moving around in London. Sometimes, I feel I just like a nomad. There are lots of layers in my life, western and eastern culture mixed in my mind, and they all influence my thoughts and designs. There are lots of culture layering together and also connecting, influencing of each other. So I try to use different materials, techniques and my invented connection parts to visualise this “linking” story.
My brand begins from my own name. I use really basic garment pattern and silhouettes which are inspired from traditional Banjara costume and pocket techniques combining with graphic pattern which is inspired from some modern art work. In my own way to intemperate eastern and western culture mix up and create a high-end womenswear collection, which has flexible attachment parts to reconstruct the garment according to wearers’ purpose.
