Traditional & Cultural Arts
Fern Chua is no stranger to impeccable design; a self-taught fashion designer driven by a lifelong penchant for aesthetics. Her journey into design can be likened to batik – intricate, poignant, and distinct. A chance encounter with a piece of batik spurred what is now a lifelong love and adulation for the bygone wearable art. Ever the visionary, Fern recognises the potential of batik in the international fashion platform. Fern Chua dubs her updated interpretation of her designs as “the new batik”.
