Pew Pew Patches drops a new collection today!

   Two months ago, I launched my own little business selling iron-on patches. The idea behind it was to create original designs together with my friend, Danny K, for creative fashion accessories. Iron-on patches was once the rave during the ’80s, with everyone patching their denim jackets and jeans with these wonderful accessories. I’ve always wanted … Continue reading

This time to close this project, I decided to draw illustrations for sighted people and dot my technical drawings for blind people to understand my clothes.

Braille inspiration

I’ve been looking through images of braille art to be inspired for my collection. Someone said “I can’t believe how these people feel to read. It’s so beautiful.” And it truly is…

Strip it down to black

Yesterday it hit me during my mid-term presentations that I was doing an all black collection. I must say, I love colour a lot. I can get a rush from seeing colour and for my 21st birthday present, I requested my mom to get me the pantone set which till today, is one of my … Continue reading
