"I wanted to create a collection about what I think women are. For me, the beautiful thing about being a woman is that you can be all sorts of things. You can be feminine, soft, gentle, loving, tender; and at the same time you can be powerful, strong, edgy, determined...and that's what I wanted to put in my designs." - Sazzy Falak

"The inspiration behind the collection is based on an american sculptor John Chamberlain. He uses crash cars and translates that into sculptures. So I used that medium to destroy my clothes and put it back together." - Kit Woo

"We're inspired by street-styles and we're not conceptually based. So we did a lot of earthy tones, we did a lot of dark blues...and we felt that there are a lot of pieces you can style really well in the collection and wear in many different ways." - Tengku Chanela Jamidah

"This collection is called Life Is A Maze -- because to me life is a maze, you have to keep searching and looking for the right direction and a way to get out...to be better. You can also see our signature print in the collection as well as how i do my embellishments." - Melinda Looi

"My inspiration is of a mermaid going up onto the shore and exploring the world and the life above the sea. I used a lot pastel colour because I think a mermaid should be a very romantic girl but at the same time should not have a romantic attitude, so I applied a bit of rebellious style in my collection. " - Kittie Yiyi.
