Most expats know that as much as you try, you can never fully immerse yourself into another culture completely. Take for instance, Andrew Gn, upon his move to France — he stayed true to his roots while also adapting the French Joie de Vivre which led to this amalgation of a collection that paid tribute to his Singaporean home and his 30th year in the promised land that he calls .

From the idea of cross-pollination—the creative mash-up of cultures and traditions—Gn drew inspiration for a collection that also marks his 30th year in France. With this creative mash up of ideas, Gn created a collection that meshed Singaporean Kaisu and à la française.

Taking inspiration from his mother, the designer remembered how his mother used to take silk from Japanese Obis to make a Singaporean National Costume or batik “My family history is all about cross pollination; they brought things with them and transformed them,” he said.
