Silk top & skirt by Lilia Yip.

 

In the year she was working on the collection she was inspired by the events that were occurring in the world around her. She wanted to know what the wearer felt when they wore the word “freedom” on their body. Lilia Yip’s main curiosity, which was the main inspiration for the collection was, “how can freedom and its opposite be expressed in a garment?” The word “freedom”in Chinese is shown throughout the collection. The two symbols are held delicately in the hand of a women who’s identity is hidden by a large mask.

Lilia Yip is a Singaporean designer based in Brighton, UK. For her MirrorMasque collection she uses asymmetric abstract cuts and digital art combined with a thorough understanding of how to make fabric drape, flow and move with the body. She is a big supporter of local UK manufacturers, small business and uses only sustainable and natural materials like organic cotton, bamboo, silk and wool. Lilia was inspired by a surreal film by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean about a girl who feels trapped in her life with a circus and longs to escape.  The collection explores the relationship between masks, freedom and hair.
