Booth reportage by Paul Carey-Kent:


"At A.I., Singaporean WeiXin Chong cleverly linked the vanitas tradition of the floral still life with the beauty industry’s contrary pretensions to counter the ageing process. The Beige Dreams series – referencing the ideal skin colour recalled from her girlhood memory of the crayon considered ‘people-coloured’ – applies make-up (in this case YSL Touche Eclat Shade 2.5) to flowers to yield a look similar to decay."
