According to Ma

TURNING the rules of fashion inside out comes naturally to veteran Hong Kong designer Walter Ma.

For his Transition-Early Spring 1995 collection he stretches the limits of standardised fashion rules with his witty deconstructed knits, cartoon-bright satins and stretch woollens.

Putting the familiar things together in a whole new way is the hallmark of Ma's style.

As usual, texture play is an important element in his collection.

Quilted satin is mixed with mohair on a motor-cycle jacket, crocheted pullovers are accented at the neck with 'furry' knit ruffs and a crinkle satin skirt gets a warm topping from a faux-fur wrap-around vest.

Evening-wear sends a similar mixed message with an asymmetrically hemmed long slip-dress with subtle patchwork play in various patterns and shades of black.

The Walter Ma boutique is located at C2 Ground Floor, Vogue Alley, Central Hair and makeup: DOTTI, Models Four Model: CLAUDIA, Models Four
