ABOUT HER COLLECTION – SHADOW LOVE
a full collection to be unveiled @ Interfiliere Hong Kong – PolyU Intimate Fashion Show on March 20th, 2019
This collection is inspired by the traditional Chinese shadow art. Shadow puppet is a form of art show. The character’s facial expression, headwear and delicate mask pattern are attracting. This collection explores the relationship between “light” and “shadow” through the interlacing of translucent screen light and puppets in the shadow play. To express the looming atmosphere, black and white are the main colours used to create hazy effect. The dramatic emotions are integrated in the designs with the use of shadow pattern printing, hollow element and Chinese knots in detail combining with soft sheer fabric such as powernet, chiffon, satinette and lace. Also, legendary love story element will combine with sexy lingerie to create funny, mysterious oriental style and feminine feelings in this collection.
