D.A.ACTIVIST is a womenswear collection by Lilia Yip and Mona Choo. The collection features artwork on clothes cut to free-form rectangular patterns, made with an ethical and sustainable practice.

In this exhibition, art and fashion combine to ask questions about human life: how we live, what impact do we have on the environment and other living beings. A subtle and intimate form of design and art activism, which is the antithesis yet silent accomplice of the emotional barrage that overloads the urban human today. This touring exhibition made its debut in Hong Kong in November 2009

Personal orders are welcome.
