  • 3PROFILEFor you life ought to be a silver dancer:

    In moonlight, starlight, dancing through your heart.

    For you the dream of beauty should be burning,

    Trembling with the passion of your yearning,

    Even as your days may come apart;

    Even as you rummage for an answer,

    Not knowing that it lies within your art.

    By Nicholas Gordon

  • 4Long has paled that sunny sky

    Echoes fade and memories die

    Autumn frosts have slain July

    Ever drifting down the stream

    Lingering in the golden gleam

    Life, what is it but a dream?

    By Lewis Carroll

    Gold And Cream Crochet Dress

  • 5UENO is a womens wear label that speaks

    of modern romance. The concept whips up a

    collection of childhood memories, fairytales,

    romance, mystery and magic. A dreamscape

    collection that whispers of free-spirited

    beauties, individuality, delicate sensibilities,

    and the bittersweet melody of life that f lows

    within. The intricate details, feminine shapes

    and folkloric fabrics create enchanting designs,

    while bold and contemporary cuts and

    stylelines evoke a certain confidence;

    A desire to Dream, to Aspire, and Inspire.


  • 6THE BOUTIQUEThe UENO store is not just a store, but a special place that stimulates the

    senses, celebrates the freedom of expression and the spirit of individuality.

    Just like the way a girls daydream takes her into her own heart, or silly

    thoughts and ideas inltrate her mind, UENO takes the customer to a girls

    room, a pixie dust trail into her dreamy mind, the source of inspiration to

    those poems hidden safely in her heart. From the colours of cosmetic bottles

    scattered across the dressing table, to the cut out of faded pictures in photo

    albums, the room tells a story of a girl, in a way thats as intimate as her diary.

  • 7The store is to look like a girls room, complete with a day bed, dressing table and

    shelves. The arrangements of the decor is to depict a scene where a girl had just left

    the room in its original state. This includes the scattered English cosmetic glass

    bottles and dresses hung over the couch. The window gives the room an English

    boudoir atmosphere, overlooking a garden. The room is complete with o-white

    decorative wall panels, dome ceiling and chandelier giving it a classic feel.
