Born in Beijing, China, I am a creative and innovative fashion design major who attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California. With a detail-oriented approach, I possess extensive knowledge of fashion design, the industry, and fashion software programs. I graduated with a BFA degree in May 2022 and showcased four sets of clothes during the graduation runway that appeared in Vogue magazine. Following my success, I returned to Vancouver to live and prepare for postgraduate study. For me, fashion is more than just clothes - it's a powerful means of self-expression and connection to the world around us. My collections are inspired by the current state of people in the world and often reflect the status and mood of these individuals as a central theme. My ultimate goal is to create clothing that resonates with people on a deeper level, helping them feel seen and heard.
The collection draws inspiration from the moody and atmospheric streets of a foggy metropolis, set in the year 2033 where a lack of sunshine and unpredictable weather patterns have led to a society focused on basic survival. With worn-out clothes sewn together and oversized garments to hide their thin bodies, people's emaciated faces are covered with coal dust. Despite their circumstances, they have put thought into their hairstyles and clothing, resulting in avant-garde elements mixed with a sense of starvation. The collection features pieces that evoke a sense of mystery and intrigue, with layers and textures that capture the damp and ethereal feeling of a foggy day.
