Lilia Yip recently received her MA in Fashion Womenswear from the Royal College of Art, and is currently based in London. She hopes to carry out a sustainable fashion practice that will balance aesthetics and ethics. “I am always interested in people- their faces, their feelings and stories. How can I understand them better and tell my own story in the process?”

In her graduation collection, “I am in Zimbabwe“, the melancholic roughness of the urban landscape contrasts with the warmth of the people Lilia met during her trip. “There is a lot of sadness in the country, but also moments of color and happiness,” she says. “For my collection, I abstracted flat shapes drawn from my photos taken in Zimbabwe , and cut and draped them into garments. I found objects which I reconstructed into new clothes; A vintage lace bed sheet becomes a dress. Fabrics used include woven bamboo, bamboo silk and pina (pineapple) silk.”
