Expansion and contraction can happen at the same time. Fabric expands and contracts to create volume, layers and space, as well as causing wear and tear.

COLLECTION CONCEPT

Be The Real Me
Everyone has many “faces”.  We often hide our real selves for self-protection. As time goes by, we will lose our true selves. Perhaps we had better take off our masks and show our true selves once more.

FromClothingOf

BRAND & DESIGNER INFO

Shirley Wong was a costume designer for television and film. In 2015 she established her own label with the aim of breaking up the conventional idea about women’s fashion and aesthetics. The name “FromClothingOf” comes from “Exlibris”, meaning “from library of”, i.e. my book. This refers to women claiming the right on how they dress. While minimalist and monotone at first glance, the pieces are meticulously tailored and structured, characterised by layering and fine details that bring out a powerful yet feminine style.

COLLECTION CONCEPT

less is more
“Once you have found your value, you realise you don’t need too many things.”
The inspiration for this season came when the designer came upon an article about French people needing only a 10-item wardrobe. If that’s the case, how do you create value for each item?

This collection is about exploring the value of the brand through its relationship with the designer. Based on the designer’s past work experience, she infuses details and character from Chinese clothing into the brand. Interestingly, the Chinese dress almost always comes from the same pattern but styling and mix-n-match can make a big difference. So in fact, we really only need 10 items in our wardrobe.
