Graduate Yen Wong picked to show at London fashion Week
In February 2020, womenswear designer Yen who had recently graduated from Fashion Design with Business Studies BA(Hons) was chosen by Graduate Fashion Week Presents to show her 2020 Spring/Summer collection at the major international fashion showcase which took place 14-16 February.
Originally from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Yen’s practice draws inspiration from her love of craft and make, exploring elements and techniques from couture and tailoring, as well as her fascination of history, heritage and culture. Yen plays heavily with juxtaposition and irony, using humour to playfully discuss matters of womanhood and personal experiences.
Her graduate collection, SUNNY SIDE UP! focuses on the combination of intricate techniques and heritage with ideas of kitsch and camp.
