Collaboration between Ashley Isham, David Lee and Melisa Chan wins, Evening Standard Window Display Competition'08

Winner of Evening Standard Window Display Competition 08. An collaborative installation between Ashley Isham, David Lee and Melisa Chan during London Fashion Week and London Design Festival 2008.

My Garden is…

A collaboration between Singaporean designers Ashley Isham, Melisa Chan and David Lee. It represents a synergy between graphics, fashion and interior design and explores the possibilities of synthetic and organic materiality. The themes of Mother Nature and pleasure in simplicity are originating concepts.

The resulting installation is a distilled interpretation of the themes of growth and metamorphosis which run through the concept of a maturing garden and in the processes employed to create the sculpture. The changing imagery, paper quality and lighting affect the overall content of the display, revealing an added dimension to the presentation.

The window at Aquaint Boutique on Conduit Street offers the appropriate location to playfully comment on layered messages of materiality through this expression of an urban garden landscape. This collaborative project is presented by the DesignSingapore Council as part of the London Design Festival 2008.
