Stolen's Zhiwa collection: Designer Elyn Wong whisks Singapore's fashion crowd to Bhutan
No fashion week? No problem. Singaporean designer and Stolen founder Elyn Wong is managing just fine on her own, if her Zhiwa fashion presentation (held earlier this month at Straits Clan) is any indication. Inspired by a life-changing trip to Bhutan in 2016, Zhiwa saw sponsor CIMB Bank and show partners — namely botany-florist This Humid House, creative agency Division, show choreographer and stylist Jerome Awasthi, and sound engineer Victor Low — pull out all the stops to recapture Wong's sense of wonderment at the small nation's landscape and culture. Part fashion presentation (Stolen's backless pieces were ever-present) and part ceremonial tribute to the Himalayan kingdom, it was a welcome reminder of the imaginative flair to be found on the Little Red Dot.
