Travel + Leisure: The Future is Female
Making waves for her elegant, minimalistic aesthetics (think column dresses and kimono-style frocks), designer Gin Lee was named Emerging Designer of the Year at the 2016 Singapore Fashion Awards. Her latest collection is influenced by daily life in Tel Aviv (shes shuttles between the Israeli city and Singapore) and inspired by "beauty in imperfection" -her "Unity" jacket makes creases a design element with its pin-tucked sleeves. The pastel-hued collection focuses on pleats with "Aviv" as its hero piece, a pleated dress made to dance and move with the body. "You go back and forth between sewing, pleating and sewing." Lee says, "it's akin to dancing with a technique, which in turn breathes life into material."
