Fashion designer Hannah Pang creates beautiful fabrics through traditional technique “kesi” – an ancient weaving craft that creates a silk tapestry with cut designs resembling carved art work.
Pang worked in Australia for many years before relocating to Suzhou in China, home of kesi and is now creating beautiful collections using this and other techniques including shibori – a folded dyeing technique, hand painting and embroidery. This exhibition showcases special Chinese handcrafted fashion fabric from the traditional to contemporary.
