Spotted! White Couture Dress


Josiah Chua Kian was one of the ten finalists of The Cuckoo Couture Design Awards organized by The Butter Factory. During the Awards show on Saturday he sent out an ornate Baroque dress that was as soft and angelic as it was meticulous and couture-like. Josiah explains, ‘I reverted to centuries-old fashion for inspiration and created a dress reminiscent of the Baroque era in order to convey a bold message. I extracted elements from culture and architecture, to give the dress an avant-garde look. Using the haute couture way of dress making, I produced a garment that oozes the expression of art in fashion.’


I am an eccentric boy with a peaceful nature. I am currently studying Fashion Design at LASALLE, The College of Arts. I find my inspiration in science and biology, creating more interesting garments that speak for themselves. I believe that success is 1% talent and 99% hard work.
