Bright, bold –and sometimes, funny– is how Ping Hatta perceive fashion. Her recent works celebrate the excitement (and the unexpected) that the fashion industry brought into the world. The series also pay homage to the world’s renowned fashion designers: Fendi, Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Junya Watanabe, Dolce & Gabbana, and more. Hatta also brings together her favorite elements – exaggerated silhouettes, quirky confidence, street-art-inspired girl characters.

Part of Ping’s work is a visual diary of her life, capturing moments and bringing out the best character in people with a sense of humor. She finds comics and cartooning as a relatable and fun way to tell a story about everyday life (and struggles) through her frankness and humor.

Collection of (tired) Newyorkers in the subway
Commissioned and unpublished illustrations for Alice and Olivia's social media and e-vites to show Fall collection.
Ping Hatta’s signature Cat Lady characters and her cats with sunglasses are inspired by the amazing women and cats that the artist have encountered in New York. They both share the same qualities: confident, charming, strategic, rebellious, and strong will.
In this collection, Hatta brings back her playful characters with signature pointy eyeliners while continues to explore dichotomies: small hands and feet versus big hair, voluptuous body versus child-like paint strokes.
Her works intend to empower women to be bold, fiercely independent, demanding at all her wills to go get what she wants to achieve, and never be influenced or told by others what to do – just like cats! In all, the artist hopes that the audiences will be able to recognize their cats, or themselves in her art.

"This is the type of art that makes a house a home” wrote the owner of the twins jumping on the bed piece (shown below) when she hung it up.
These pieces, like the one of the two girls holding hands (right) and hung when a family moved to their new home, have a feeling of nostalgia because they both capture a specific moment from a photograph, but also because they are made from the children’s outgrown clothes.
Recognition of the familiar colors, fabrics, patterns and most of all body language make them special.
Another appliqué, the small clothes design was made for a mother who wanted to do something with the clothes her daughter wore when she was adopted from an orphanage in China. The sleeping child was handed over to her new mother wearing “everything she owned” including hand-knitted pieces with wonderful texture. Her mother wanted to preserve these clothes, shoes, and memories so we maintained the shape of each item and then fit them together in a design that the family could enjoy and reminisce about.
“The piece arrived on Christmas Eve and I was able to hold off opening it until Christmas Morning when we had my mom and dad here too! I was in tears and shaking with love once I saw it. What a blessing you have given us with your creativity and talent. It will be treasured for many lifetimes. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and care in putting this together. You have BLESSED US RICHLY with your gift.”
