Did you know that her name was Pauline Lim and not Pauline Ning? Pauline and I met on the set of a shoot; her work was highlighted along with five other up-and-coming talents for style: magazine’s ‘Brand New Heavies’. A graduate of LASALLE College of the Arts, she mastered in textile and designs.
Since our meeting, we’ve fallen for her clothes (unfortunately for us, we won’t be wearing dresses anytime soon) and have been following her career. She ventured into designing bags as well and definitely one of our favorite young designers; she’s an exceptional piece of talent.
Her works involves a lot of fabrication techniques unlike any that we’ve seen in the local scene. She combines contradicting elements such as soft and rigid which creates a structured and refined looks to her collection. The play of fabrics, textures and color to the individual garment is wondrous. It’s really nothing gimmicky of reinventing an old form; it’s focused on quality, exploring fresh and innovative designs. You simply have to feel it to believe it.
These unique pieces are stock in Parco next NEXT located within Parco Marina Bay store. Do drop by to check out the collection, touch it and you too will fall for her clothes. I think she did her idol Sandra Backlund proud!
