Wing Yau: "Every piece is an iteration of the same idea, a little piece of the process."
Where does the name, WWAKE, come from?
The name WWAKE is a metaphor for how I like to design—many gestures that come together as a whole, with ease and poetry, just like the waves in a body of water. Every piece is an iteration of the same idea, a little piece of the process. That’s how I like to design collections. (and the two W’s are a visual metaphor for a wake, like concrete poetry.)
Is there one place or country that you hold dearest?
Well, I lived for many years in Peru, so I would say I have a lot of nostalgia attached to the places I visited there. That said, to me travel is all about immersing yourself in another culture and learning, and I’ve been inspired and grown so much as a person from most places I’ve been. It’s hard to pick just one!
