Harper's Bazaar: A TO Z OF SINGAPORE FASHION DESIGNERS
In 2011, NAFA and Central Saint Martins graduate Gin Lee established her eponymous label in Israel, which was hardly a conventional choice for a Singaporean brand. Winner of the Emerging Designer of the Year at the 2016 Singapore Fashion Awards, Lee is known for her love of lightweight fabrics such as silk, as well as clever use of pleating to give structure and create movement. Besides pleats, Gin Lee’s designs also often incorporate the use of translucent fabrics, sheer panelling, and slits to create an airy and ethereal feel to her creations. Lee’s laidback and flattering silhouettes are perfect for both a casual weekend, as well as a sensual date night.
