Shirley Wong was a costume designer for television and film before establishing FromClothingOf in 2015 with a mission to upend conventional ideas about women’s fashion. The name “FromClothingOf” comes from “Exlibris”, meaning “from library of”, i.e. my book. This refers to women claiming authority on how they dress. The designs are meticulously tailored and structured, characterised by layering and fine details that bring out a powerful yet feminine style.
