Valentina Taylor

HONG KONG 1957 collection is named after the 1957 journey that Valentina’s grandmother Pauline did from Sydney to Hong Kong to stay with her friend Rosetta and her family for 4 months. This introduction to a new and interesting culture was life changing for her, all of these new experiences gave her a taste of what it meant to be a part of a high society community.

The vibrant colours and details she remembers from Hong Kong was one of the main elements she emphasised throughout the collection. She combined a lot of moulage for volume research and tailoring to represent the strong presence of traditional Chinese clothing.
