Perspectives on Tradition and Future, Sustainability and Fashion, and Life.
關於傳統與未來、永續與時尚生活的看見

My interdisciplinary approach as a textile sculptor and designer merges tradition with innovation, sustainability with fashion, and life with art. Through upcycling, I revive manual, ancestral techniques, breaking free from impersonal industrial production. This shift fosters a deeper, more personal connection between creator and garment, resonating with consumers. It's a fashion renaissance, reinventing the industry for a more human, sustainable, and respectful future.

我的跨領域方法作為一個紡織雕塑家和設計師將傳統與創新、可持續性與時尚、生活與藝術融合在一起。通過再利用,我喚醒手工、祖傳技術,擺脫冷淡的工業生產。這種轉變促進了創作者和服裝之間更深層次、更個人化的聯繫, resonating with consumers。這是時尚的復興,重新塑造了行業,迎接更人性化、更可持續、更尊重的未來。

The Concept and Description of the Work
關於參展作品的創作動機與設計理念

"Armadura de Sol" is a suspended dress merging yellow collars, resembling a tent-like silhouette. Initially conceived as a personal sanctuary, it has evolved into a profound coping mechanism, offering a safe space for emotions. The variety of yellow textiles evoke positive emotions and provide comforting warmth. More than a visual piece, it serves as a conduit of positive energy and emotional resonance, inviting viewers to engage in an interactive experience by placing their heads through the openings. This interaction transforms the dress into a portal for uplifting narratives and emotional connections. It reflects hope, resilience, and the capacity for positive transformation amidst life's challenges, weaving symbolic elements into a fashion expression. 

"太陽護甲" 是一件懸掛的連衣裙,融合了黃色衣領,形成了類似帳篷般的輪廓。最初構想為個人聖所,它已演變成一種深刻的應對機制,為情緒提供了一個安全空間。多種黃色紡織品喚起了積極的情緒,並提供了令人安慰的溫暖。它不僅僅是一件視覺藝術品,還作為正能量和情感共鳴的媒介,邀請觀眾通過穿過開口來參與互動體驗。這種互動將連衣裙轉化為一個載有振奮故事和情感聯繫的門戶。它反映了在生活挑戰中的希望、韌性和積極轉變的能力,將象徵性元素編織到時尚表達中。
