At the intersection of fashion and art, is where one should begin to navigate Ong Shunmugam Raya 2018.
For our second season of Malay womenswear, I’ve taken my creative impulses through mechanisms of introspection, reduction and to places where I’ve not cared about anything else other than what I consider to be beautiful. The hope is that the work will then offer authentic emotional forms that exceed sense or desire – an excess impossible to reabsorb, and constantly open to interpretation and possibility.
My team and I have worked fiercely and fearlessly to create fashion that is original, well made and as always, progressive. I am so proud of them and I invite you to lose yourself in this odyssey of art, beauty and imagination.
