ReConnisseur by AshLee
Thirty-three-year old former professional secretary Ash Lee got set back on her fashion career path when she took part in a T-shirt design competition, coming in second among 300 entrants. She launches her Homebound collection next month: 30 different styles created using techniques like slicing, braiding and laddering on 100 per cent cotton t-shirts in five categories – from reconstructed pre-loved tees to collaborations with local and foreign artists. Why the t-shirt? ‘It is the most basic item in the wardrobe and everyone owns more than a dozen at home,’ said Lee. $49-$129. PARCO next NEXT, #03-02 Millenia Walk, 9 Raffles Boulevard (9474 1588).
