High voltage quirkiness from Carla Chan

Colour, texture and abstract prints all draw your eye with magnetic force when you view Carla Chan’s graduate collection. But the thing your gaze then hovers on is the unique shapes, the twists and gathers and drapes that bend the mind like an Escher sketch.

A graduate of Nottingham Trent University in association with the Hong Kong Design Institute, Chan’s quirkiness is her trademark. Timmothy Lee‘s look book for the collection plays to both the whimsy of the pieces and their unique shapes, working model Joy Mclaren into dramatic poses that showcase each twist and turn. Yan Leung’s high-voltage makeup is similarly perfectly matched to the bold yellows and blues of the clothing.
