Elaine Ng Yan Ling
Are seven unconventional textile designers who come from diverse backgrounds. A passion for pushing boundaries within a multi-diciplinary approach is what binds them together.
They see textiles as part of the environment, a functional material as well as a playful medium. Design that reflects what they believe in and provides narratives for living. They do not just design for aesthetically pleasing reasons. Delving into design methodology and material research, exploring responsive surfaces and the boundaries between the playful and functional.
They apply this approach to fashion and print, product design, art and performance. In doing so they hope to provoke new ways of thinking about textiles.
