Science Fiction Is For White People

The concept of science fiction was built for white people; it took off near the start of the Industrial Revolution and age of Enlightenment in Europe.

Having A Mastectomy At 25

Like too many young girls I spent my adolescence and early 20s plagued with insecurity and low self esteem. Anxious, depressed and barely eating; I hated myself. With goals of working in fashion, my ample bosom felt like a curse. I lost count of the number of times friends, family and strangers (?!) told me...

Pigtails And Poppadoms

Stories about the coolness of my hair, my food, and my culture. As a brown girl born and raised in Bangkok, pigtails were a permanency growing up. They were easy for my mother and my myriad of aunties to quickly weave together. They would melodically repeat the same phrase over and over again, that pigtails...

Girls are finally raising their voices through creative outlets expressing and celebrating their own ideas of sexuality, beauty, confidence. Somewhere behind the glitter, rose...

Soft Heart, Tough Heart

Who taught us to see softness as a weakness? Who is teaching us to harden up, to be tough? Who is teaching us that the only way to be strong is to not feel, to be devoid of feelings, whether those feelings are good or bad? Why have we accepted to live like this? Why...

FF/17

Titled ‘FF/17‘ standing for freedom in fashion, based on a predicted trend for SS/17 – underwear garments worn as outerwear. My campaign aims to normalise this fashion, and liberates women in doing so. Making a statement that women in this day and age now have the freedom within their wardrobes to wear what they wish...
