Malaysian designer, Cassey Gan, clearly has an eye for geometry. A lively and vibrant palette in bold prints embodies her spring summer 2019 collection, revealed at Fashion Scout's show at Freemason's Hall.
In reaction to Malaysia's altering political scene, the bright and colourful aesthetic stands for her hopeful and optimistic spirit. Inspired by David Hockney's sixties pop art, Cassey Gan uses strokes of colour and print-on-print to create a sense of controlled chaos, reminiscent of Hockney's work.
For the first time in 60 years, Malaysia has seen a change of government; and with change comes uncertainty. To rival this feeling of unease, Cassey Gan has focused on the bright future that this could bring for younger generations with the spirit of nationalism and patriotism demonstrated throughout the entire country.
Having grown up in a country that is very diverse in culture, the designer is accustomed to being inclusive. She always designs with customers of all races and different sizes in mind. This outlook is also apparent at her shows, using a diverse range of models.
