Tam's collection for the Fall was inspired by the Chinese character for nothingness: both the physical beauty of the character itself and the symbolical beauty — one of the tenets of Buddhism is that the material world is an illusion and that everything, being nothing, is one. From this symbol of unity and hope, Tam created a collection, mostly of cocktail dresses, in which the symbol was both literally and abstractly incorporated. It is a little gem of a collection of restrained elegance.
