Teresa Lim who graduated with a degree in Fashion Design and Textiles, combines her interest in illustrations, embroidery and surface pattern design in her works. Her latest series called 12 Rooms explores themes of adolescence and coming of age, which are easily relatable to all ages. She has showcased her works in exhibitions and fashion shows in Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Japan, and worked with international brands such as H&M, Swarovski and Gucci. 

 

"The Twelve Rooms is an embroidered illustration series that is inspired by personal stories revolving around the theme of growing up. I started this series as an outlet of expression and as illustrative reminders on growing up in this digital day and age as a millennial. I was inspired to create these pieces also to encourage conversation about certain issues like bullying and sexuality."
