Up And Coming Stylist Sabrina Elman Tackele Notions Of Malayness

For her graduating project this year, Lasalle College of The Art's fashion media and industries graduate sabrina elman directed, wrote and produced children of the soil a stylised short film that explores notions of Malayness. Malaysian modernist painter Latiff Mohidin was a key inspiration; traditional fabrics like javanese batik and songket feature heavily; ditto audio notes sampled from local malay films from the '60s - making for a stunning and powerful display that establishes the 24-year-old as one to watch. As with some of the most groundbreaking fashion designers and image-makers to emerge in recent years (grace wales bonner, telfar clemens and Kerby Jean-Raymond of pyer moss come to mind), conversations about race, history and identity are central to her work. Here, she tells Keng Yang Shuen why she - and many others will keep talking about them.
