Entry Description

Inspired by designer's name Suyeon which means lotus flower on the water in Chinese characters. With the fusion of oriental moods and contemporary fashions, this collection explores an excellent balance between a sense of Asian art. The designer used natural or transparent fabrics to connote symbolic meaning, purity of lotus flower and water. Each look represents the lotus flower on the water in different ways of designs: a petal - inspired draping and exaggerated silhouette, floating flower - inspired hand beading and screen printing, and the transparent water - inspired layered fabric.
