[Digital Fashion Week 2014] Thomas Wee Brings The Opera To The Fashion Scene

| |
Hi Huneybees,

It was <<Farewell My Concubine>> meets Wieqi (Chinese name for the classic board game) moment as Thomas Wee presented his beautiful and elegant collection at the Digital Fashion Week 2014.

Strongly influenced by the Chinese opera, his signature silhouettes of elegant works in silk are seen as he incorporates traditional Korean and Japanese kimonos with brillant cuts and tailoring. His designs are wearable, timeless and entirely unique, as seen on the models as well as Business Development Director of DFW Creative - Charina Widjaja.

The show began with Asia's Next Top Model finalist - Sofia Wakabayashi clad in silk organza top, culottes and a Japanese inspired belt, choreography for the show was as interesting as Thomas' outfits as the models walked back and forth, with an uncanny interaction, as though we were all watching a fashion opera.

What I loved is ability to create this soft beauty with just 2 tones, without any fancy theatrics, the models all stood in refined elegance. Just like this piece above, with just simple folds, what seemed like a pair of pants, is in fact a skirt, creating that amazing illusion as the model walked past us.

Totally understanding the female's anatomy, the free-standing collars, the big sweeping shawls and smart looking suits, totally shouts drama and poise, especially with the last few looks on Sofia Wakabayashi and America's Next Top Model winner - Jourdan Miller, you will definitely be turning hands with Thomas Wee's amazing craftmaking.

Though owning a piece from the atelier of Thomas Wee might be luxurious, but I bet from the pictures shown below, you know you are getting the best of best. You’ll need to make an appointment with Thomas himself, if you would like to get them.
