About the programme

Can fashion promote dignity and/or diversity? Our previous artist residency, Elisa Lim from Will & Well, will be discussing how the brand approaches these topics in their work. In this session, she has also invited a guest to share about his own experience with these matters as a person with disability. Join us on Zoom to learn more about how that might look like for the marginalized and how Will & well as a brand represents some of these issues in their work.

This talk is held as part of the Inclusive Fashion Exhibition by Will & Well, at library@orchard's Trend Gallery from 2-31 January 2022.

About the speakers

Elisa Lim is the founder of Will & Well (@willandwell) and a spirited social entrepreneur that started her journey with an interest in fashion design. Along the journey, she discovered a deeper interest in social design and innovation. She believes that the approach applied in designing inclusive apparels could also be used through other mediums and in other industries.
