Born and raised in Singapore but now living in London, Tze Goh stands out for his strikingly minimal and sculptural designs. He has developed a very interesting signature, strongly influenced by his roots, the geometry of Asian shapes, but with a clearly contemporary statement due to the high quality materials and the architectural, 3D constructions of his designs.
Yes, my designs are inspired by modern architecture. When designing, I like to start with a simple shape, such as a t-shirt, and stretch and mould the fabric into something new, modern, creating a serenely sensual and statuesque design. My design ethos is one of minimalism. Smooth lines, folded seams and intricate pleating create a clean palette that allows the garments to speak for themselves.
Tze Goh was also one of four designers chosen in February 2011 by Vauxhall Fashion Scout, to show on their collaborative catwalk event Ones To Watch.
