Kimberlyn Quek is an all-in-one fashion designer, trained in sketching, design, pattern-making, cutting, and sewing. In March 2005, she was awarded the First Prize (Pattern Cutter Category) at the TCT Teenage Cancer Trust (UK) Charity Fashion Show, while reading her course at the London College of Fashion.

“We were asked to incorporate the TCT logo (3 little men hand in hand) in our design. My idea was to deconstruct and reconstruct.” Kim explains. “The process of making this design, speaks about what the teenage cancer patients are going through. The fabric is a wool blend knit. First, I created the silhouette of the graphic irregularly by sandwiching the fabric with quilt. After that, I trimmed along the stitch lines for every single piece and hand stitched them together, one by one, to form a kimono gusset cropped jacket.”
