Winson Tan, Crystal Tsoi, Ayaka Ichikawa and Gabriel Lee represented the Raffles College at Sydney fashion week, showcasing collections which featured flowing, diaphanous fabrics and stylised summer moods. 

Winson Tan‘s collection incorporated layered, transparent fabrics and an aquamarine, orange and light pink palette, resulting in clinging, elegant garments with a retro twist.

Crystal Tsoi‘s work played with classical cuts subtly including unexpected details. Asymmetrical skirt and dresses and rich, dark tones contributed to create an edgy elegance.

Ayaka Ichikawa’s pieces made use of clean, minimalist structures and exaggerated volumes. Left-right contrasts and alternating fabrics injected texture and dynamism into the garments.

Gabriel Lee concluded the show with a whimsical collection of more formal garments, featuring lengthened, open jackets and dresses and a palette of light peach and cream colours.
