December 21, 2011

An eclectic array of styles and design elements was captured in a canvas of artistic flair at PJ College of Art and Design (PJCAD)’s Tavolozza Di Reverie graduation fashion show put together by 13 creative minds.


A showcase of the finest works by graduating students, Tavolozza Di Reverie was also a representation of the skills, knowledge, ideas and workmanship acquired and developed over three years in the Diploma in Fashion Design and Technology programme – all intricately woven together to create an unforgettable afternoon of glamour.


The collection – featuring the creations of budding designers Law Shu Yee, Denise Embert, Eesher Pua, William Sim, Matilda Low, Chan Siew Le, Nadiah Farehan, Nelisha Wong, Nicholas Fong, Puteri Shabira Dayana, Yew Shu Yee, Yves Yong and Hyacinthe Kaur – displayed modern silhouettes, characterized by a swirl of colours linked to the four seasons and fused with a pinch of Malaysian heritage.

“At PJCAD, we demolish the mental barriers of these young designers and open new dimensions for them to explore, while consistently exposing and encouraging them to experiment through which they learn the aspects of designing through visual judgment,” said Es Azren, Head of Fashion & Industry.
