Serina is a Fashion Designer from Lasalle College specialising in Textile design. She has a 15-year background in Chinese Painting and Calligraphy and has exhibited her art pieces, Fashion Design, and embroidery works. Her works reference the principles of Chinese art and she specialises in hand painting and embroidery in textile.
In her fashion design and textile making, Serina employs the principles of Chinese art, such as triangularity, brush movement, and proportion. She takes a meditative approach to creating and finding inspirations in life’s transient beauty. The rhythm of a brush guides her textile mark-making and painting.
This collection explores the interdisciplinarity between Fashion and Chinese art principles, painting and calligraphy. Each piece is an original painting, designed to be both worn and displayed as art. The weight of drapes, the form of the body and the textile mark-making of every piece were translated from the principles of Chinese art.
The collection is summed up into 12 Chinese characters, 问情何物空芒悲欢花梦诗影, reflecting on the pause in time, a void in space, and life.
