Teo Ying Hui was born in 1977 and graduated from the Raffles Design Institute with a Diploma in Fashion Design. Her Autumn/Winter 07-08 collection (above), inspired by a yearning for solitude, was based on being and nothingness. The designer explains, “Does existentialism justify our being, or is the nothingness a better rationalization? We are defined by the voids in life and at the same time, we are seeking freedom from our consciousness. Taking a simplified and abstract look at these thoughts, my collection attempts to uncover how isolation inspires the route to self-actualization.”

For her Spring/Summer 08-09 women’s collection, Teo Ying Hui found inspiration in nostalgia and dreams, and in objects that evoke a sense of familiarity and belonging; old toys, cracked paint, vintage fabrics, wooden benches and dusty books. “Through the random linkage of these objects and haphazard episodes in my dreams, I imagine new clothes for the passer-by in my dreamscapes.”

DemiSemi Designs are available from Front Row, Level3.
