Lislie Yeung's 'albino' collection is based on emotional response evoked from albinos and their striking aesthetic qualities, translating that into the mood of the collection through process and development.
March 25, 2010 - Using techniques built from previous projects: sanding pyramid shaped EVA strips between lining and upper to create subtle details and highlights, the collection is a work in progress of ideas built throughout the year combined with her personal aesthetics.
Always trying to balance creativity and commercial viability, this collection brings together custom handmade details (hand dyed lace, electroplated silver onto molded lace and placement prints) into a understandable silhouettes and styles.
The aim was to design a creative yet marketable luxury range without being irrelevant or contrived.
Lislie's footwear infuses elements from other areas of design, great materials and customized details.
Lislie was born in Hong Kong and has studied in England and United States of America.
She has received her BA in womenswear at Parsons School of Design in NY.
After working in the fashion industry for 4 years, decided to pursue her MA to further her passion and career in the luxury footwear industry.
Lislie is currently in the works to launch her footwear label after just completing her MA at Cordwainers - London College of Fashion.
