The first time one does anything is always special. It is a culmination of tiny decisions that lead to one single action.
For Ginette Chittick, the reason for any “first” is simple: “Just try, lor,” she says. “Just try” was what led her to join a punk girl band when she was 15. It sparked a lifetime of firsts for the now 43-year-old.
And most recently, Chittick, a mum of one and a lecturer and programme leader at the Diploma of Fashion programme at Lasalle College of the Arts, added another first to her list in March 2019: She moved beyond her design and music background to launch her first art exhibition called Planes and Envelopes. It features pieces crafted from woven yarn and other materials, it was jointly held with her friend, fine artist Hazel Lim.
