Star Creation 2011: Cheryl Tan

Cheryl Tan was one of the twelve young Asian designers chosen from 144 entries from all over the region at this year’s Star Creation competition. The 21-year-old is a student at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts. Her collection is themed Roadworks, and is inspired by the notoriously busy roads of Asia, constantly pounded by vehicles, pedestrians, bicycles and even animals. Each day, one has to navigate a heady mix of massive jams, overcrowded lanes and confusing highways. A street could take on a parade on one day, and turn into a muddy river the next. Cheryl envisions her collection as an Asian city in its own right, complete with road-like weaves and straps, unexpected seams and tunnelled textures.
