The Raffles Design Institute recently announced 18-year old Vicky Zhu as the winner of Best Fashion Collection. Vicky, who finished her BA (Hons) in Fashion, presented half a dozen looks from her men’s collection, which was inspired by Arbosculpture.
Vicky explains: “Arborsculpture is the art and technique of growing and shaping woody trunks. By grafting, the tissues of one plant are affixed to the tissue of another plant. Although grafting usually refers to joining two plants, it may be a combination of several plants. Human power forces the plant to grow into ornamental shapes. My collection re-interprets the process of grafting, giving everyday outfits a new look.”
