SILENCE

This collection is designed to recognise that religion is the true cornerstone of Chinese culture.  As such, traditional Buddhist clothing has been reconstructed into modified silhouettes, recombined sleeves and translocated belts. Red-grey and blue-grey colours are a salute to Chinese civilization. The goldfish print represents a traditional word association. ‘Goldfish’ and ‘silence’ are pronounced the same way, but whereas silence has religious connotations, the goldfish represents wealth.
