Hazel Liew, founder and lead designer of Gaëlle, is a Canadian who has travelled extensively, now considers Singapore as her home. Having lived in Australia and Canada, she developed a penchant for Classical European designs since young. As such, she draws inspiration from popular Western motifs to establish a brand concept based predominantly on this elegant European style, fusing them with Asian functionality and preferences. Gaëlle products are hand silkscreened preserving the arts and livelihoods of regional craftsmen; still using the process to print traditional batik patterns. The fabrics distinctive custom colours and patterns lend themselves to the charming product applications Hazel has personally developed for interior design and fashion accessories.
