I'm going to Cambodia!

I'm going to Cambodia tomorrow to present my collection entitled "Triumph of Tradition" in Siem Riep for the 4th Angkor Silk Festival from February 1-4. I'm the featured designer on the last day. I particulary used jusi and barong fabric as the main focus of my collection. I wanted to fuse tradition, innocence, religion and futurism into the clothes. It's so cliche but I have been looking and reading stuff about Nicolas Ghesquiere. I guess the futurism part, I got from him. There will be pleated plastic embellishments on the clothes. All the fabrics I used are vintage, a return I guess to my early works involving used materials and found objects. The design highlights the callado or pulled needlework of the fabric.

I'm so excited already to go.
