The Singapore-based womenswear label was founded in 2007 by Elyn Wong an established figure in the local design and art industries. Her approach to garment construction is informed by her passions for architecture and installation art, invoking a structured rather than decorative form. STOLEN is an ode to architecture and an elegant expression of the feminine allure.

 

 

 

Stolen Spring-Summer 2016 is a modern tribute to the beauty of Cuandixia, inspired by the designer's personal journey to explore the remote village. Clean lines and minimalist constructions capture the raw nature and historical essence of the village. Sleek Mao collars and operatic winged sleeves recall the majestic detailing of traditional Chinese garments. Straight silhouettes and elongated robes in dark emerald evoke a quiet and elegant regality.

Holly Meyers is a young fashion designer freshly graduated from New Zealand's esteemed College of Creative Arts. Holly Meyers has a love for textiles and art. She broke new ground with the way she uses fabric manipulations, screen-printing and weaving to communicate ideas. 

 

 

She imagined this graduating collection called "Self-Portrait with Barbara" as an exhibition of the skills she has gained over the four years she spent at COCA. We will remember the pleated perfection and body shape sketching.
