Odélia Wong, born and raised in Hong Kong. A local HK-based designer. Master graduating in Luxury and Fashion Management at Savannah College of Art and Design Hong Kong. She is fascinated about the urban culture of Hong Kong, starts to translate the elements into the modern culture through diverse techniques, and launches the brand Invisibilis Moveré. She believes the power of curiosity is a crucial skill for cultivating creativity, being curious helps to open one’s mind to explore, enhancing the power of observation. As we see things differently we also sense things differently at that time.
Ground-breaking with the concept of the wearable piece of art by the print design, Odélia creates her signature prints by capturing the city-view of Hong Kong. The products are developed by remodelling the artifice of techniques, presents the relations between time, space and culture.
During her time as an undergraduate student, her collection was honoured with three awards. At this time, she focused on bias-cut technique, which helped her explore the technique of tailoring and silhouette. She developed her skills by combining various technologies with different techniques and theory. In 2007, she started to apply dyeing theory, working with various types of industrial acid and alkali on raw materials like silk, cotton, and polyester in woven and knit fabric. This was to explore the chemical reaction between PH, materials, and heat on cloth.
During 2009 to 2010, she worked for the luxury brand St.Dupont. She explored traditional tailoring and skills via men's suit. In early 2011, she met a Japanese designer and advised her to go back to work for ladies'wear. She started to work for Vivienne Tam during 2011 to 2015. Meanwhile, she explored traditional techniques of creating antique and vintage garments. These included all types of traditional techniques like Macramé, Treatments, Embroidery, and Embellishments. The experience of working for Vivienne Tam drove her to understand the importance of quality, craftsmanship, the vision of art and culture, and uniqueness, and how to apply them on a luxury product.
In her the designer’s life, “fashion” is one of the channels, a media to present her artistic expression.
