How much of the truth is the media telling us? How much are they hiding? Often, the media is rigged and controlled by the rich and powerful, manipulating it to serve their agenda or to cover up their heinous acts. The selective feeding of information to the masses often leads us to be misinformed, or to subconsciously conform to the ideals of those that control it. We only see what they want us to see. This collection of two looks is strung by the idea of origami flowers which represents the media portraying a glossed over image of reality and the public being engulfed by it, only to reveal angry and frantic graffiti scrawls underneath that reveals the ugly underbelly of society and especially those in power, that the media often covers up. This collection is an exposé of that ugly underbelly.
To Cheong Sheng, fashion is an attitude, a fantasy. Expressive and evocative, fashion can be a projection of our most uninhibited self. With a background in both business management and fashion design, Sheng aspires to start his own label in the future. Heavily inspired by a whimsical mix of organic structures, androgyny and over-the-top eccentricities, the boundaries of fashion are limitless.
