Jolene Fung's Graduate Collection Remixes Retro Styling in a Sustainable Way

Central St. Martins graduate Jolene Fung revives 50s styling for a new generation of fashion lovers with her latest womenswear collection. The visionary designer re-creates the glamorous era's curved and voluminous silhouettes with her range of sculptural and artfully patterned pieces.

Crafting feminine dresses, voluminous skirts and corsets isn't easy but the designer manages to infuse her pieces with both functionality and aesthetics.

"With an innovative method, the Hong Kong-based designer gives a new spin to pattern cutting and packaging techniques and constructs garments without wasting a single cm of thread."

Jolene Fung's entire collection is joined with a complex method of interlocking seams that keeps pieces together. Furthermore, her gorgeous garments are constructed using recycled plastic bags that were sponsored by TRAID.
