Ying the label featured the brand’s signature art pieces at Singapore Fashion Week as a part of Fashion Futures 1.0 – a multi label fashion show supporting the next generation of Singapore fashion designers,  supported by SPRING Singapore.

Ying was created by designer Li Ying – translating her character, inspirations and thoughts into her designs- using fabrics as her canvas, creating one-of-a-kind art pieces with abstract brush strokes dipped in a whimsical watercolour palette.

I wanted to tell my stories through art, because it was my way of self-expression. Inspired by the simplest of things that I experience in my life”  – Li Ying.

For the SS18 collection “Beyond Horizons” Ying used fabrics from Japan, Korea, Indonesia and China to ensure the prints stay on forever. Every piece in the collection is a wearable art that will provoke vibrancy in your wardrobe. Silhouettes are kept simple so they can take centre stage in a beautiful collaboration between fashion and art.

The result is an elegant and romantic collection Inspired by the beauty that lies beyond the naked eye: the blend of orange and pink during sunsets; the amazing colours that appear on living things. mystical birds, colourful skies. The bird drawing in the pieces replicates us, humans, and our curious minds.
