Trinh graduated in 2021 from Whitehouse Institute of Design, located in Melbourne, Australia. Throughout her education, Trinh focused heavily on merging traditional Asian garments with contemporary ideas in order to maintain a sense of Asian heritage while staying current.
‘Fragile, Handle With Care’ is a collection which addresses the stigma of mental health in the Asian community while incorporating androgynous and tech-wear elements. In addition, the collection deconstructs the social constructs of gender and is inspired by the blurred lines of the past and the present. It explores mankind’s innate aspirations to connect and be connected with one another.
The collection utilises repetitive use of same fabrications to ensure low wastage for the environment. Furthermore, the custom printed designs are printed with a reputable company that works with local water boards to ensure ink waste is disposed of properly.
