Studio HHFZ now has a team of four, including Ruixian, to do the crafting and handiwork of the garments from scratch. As a Singaporean woman, she knows how to design for the local weather and lifestyles, in order that her customer feels comfortable and confident.
PROCESS
Ruixian sources her fabrics locally and on her overseas travels. Since her garments are often customised, she does not need much fabric and can afford to carry them back by hand.
The message behind the graphic illustration we see in the collection was motivated by an unfortunate incident Ruixian encountered on the internet. She decided to use her garments to convey strength, empowerment and positivity in the face of demeaning situations.
