Fashion design has always been my passion, but when I pursued my fashion diploma at Lasalle College of the Arts, I realised luxury fashion didn’t quite resonate with me. I began questioning my place in the fashion industry.
Will & Well founder, Elisa Lim, designs inclusive yet easy-to-wear clothes for people with disabilities. It took Elisa Lim five years of research about designing clothes for people with special needs and disabilities before she started her inclusive fashion brand, Will & Well.
For some of us, adversity has undoubtedly played a part in paving a new route to success. I always believed that tough times don’t last, but tough men do. As cliche as it sounds, it holds a certain truth as pushing through failure makes success a sweeter victory.
When the passion for fashion originates from a heart full of compassion, what comes out are clothes of unparalleled distinction. Clothing that any person with a disability can be proud of is what fashion design student, Elisa Lim, created after her final-year project for LASALLE College of the Arts.
Alternatively, we have local entrepreneur, Elisa Lim, and her dedicated team, who have been redefining the concept of fashion with their label, Will & Well Singapore, a unique clothing line that produces inclusive apparel that are both comfortable and functional while staying aesthetically pleasing.
Elisa was feeling uninspired about creating fashion for fashion’s sake. Then the final year fashion studies student at Singapore’s LASALLE College of the Arts got an unusual request from a doctor friend. "He was looking for someone to design clothes for his bed-bound patients. I agreed as I had been looking to do something more meaningful with my skills,"
