Polly launched LOOM LOOP first collection shortly after winning the corporate fashion project for the Philippe Starck-designed hotel, The South Beach in Singapore. Since winning the project, she has gone on to win the SME’s Youth Entrepreneurship Award in 2015, the Design for Asia Award 2015 (Bronze), Perspective’s 40 under 40 Award and HKDA Global Design Awards (Silver and Hong Kong Best) in 2016.
In weaving, the basic purpose of the loom is to hold the warped threads. In knitting, the basic structure contains multiple loops of yarn. Looming and looping are the fundamentals in knitting textiles. LOOM LOOP focuses on materials and adds value on them to make the collections elegant and valuable. The brand also uses luxurious Canton silk, a traditional fabric that requires a high degree of craftsmanship, in its collection extensively.
