" Cynthia has the tallest tales to tell, may you believe. At the age of 3, her father discovered her immortality in an incident one night in their humble home, America, 1885, where he substituted the chicken for his only daughter in the weekly stew. This meant business, oh yes.

Within the next hour he had set up his own circus, demanding the 3 year old to walk the life as the trapeze artist - 60 feet in the air.

Slowly but surely, she had mastered the art of trapeze, failing and falling every time for 30 years until her moment of grandeur. Sadly, that is where it was too late for the still aspiring father. She had unmistakably fallen in love with her costume. Such pretty colours and glorious textures of the fabric, not to mention a cushier landing for each fall. Where do such pretty things come from? Well I dunno, in such day and age, poor folk gets none. How about she makes her own? The story continues 123 years forward."

About us:

OMAIIdesign is an online portfolio created by two students who study under the University of Arts, London. This website was fabricated for students and aspiring professionals from anywhere to showcase their work for Online Public viewing plus allowing anyone to purchase items and ideas made by the designers.

Currently there are four confirmed designers at OMAii exhibiting their work and there are more to joining in the near future as we recruit more talent, allowing OMAIIdesign to expand to reach more people.

OMAiidesign.co.uk is our place to say this is what I am; this is what I do.

Let us take this opportunity to thank the ones who allowed this website to become reality. Thank you Pea and Chris for your constructive feedback and great ideas. Also, we would like to thank Jon and Bob. Without their immense continual aid, this website would have never gotten past mark 1. How are we ever going to express our gratitude with my poor vocabulary? We'll draw you both a picture.

Thank you :D and certainly, we, ourselves deserve a pat on the back.

Projects and Works

This was a summer project, which is for mainly handknitting and exploring the boundaries. I became obsessed with buttons and the way to embellish the yarn with found objects, and I created this outfit. Thank you to Aiko for the photo and thanks to Sohui for modelling.

Up and Above - CFST S/S 2009
Inspired by the bird's eye view of city structure, an 8 look jersey and knit collection was created. This collection is dedicated to detailing through the use of lines and drapes the material creates around the body. The focus of details are enhanced by the simplicity of the black and white.
