/Artist 藝術家/

Dr Kristina Shin's research consists of 1) creative fashion design and 2) inclusive design. For the former, she shares a story through garments that are aesthetically pleasing and providing the perfect fit. For the latter, she searches for innovative solutions to real world challenges including post-mastectomy product design (i.e., mastectomy bra & prosthesis) for breast cancer survivors, compression garment design for sports performance, and hydrotherapy product design for rehabilitation. Dr Shin enjoys working with experts in other disciplines as they offer ample opportunities to view research questions from new perspectives.

Dr. Kristina Shin的研究包括兩個方面:1)創意時尚設計和2)包容性設計。對於前者,她通過美觀且合身的服裝分享故事。對於後者,她尋找創新解決方案以應對現實世界的挑戰,包括為乳腺癌康復者設計術後產品(如乳房切除術文胸和義乳)、為運動表現設計壓縮服裝,以及為康復設計的水療產品。Dr. Shin喜歡與其他學科的專家合作,因為這提供了從新角度審視研究問題的豐富機會。

Perspectives on Tradition and Future, Sustainability and Fashion, and Life.

Tradition and future, sustainability and fashion, and life intertwine through history, culture, innovation, creativity, and values. Tradition grounds us in heritage while the future gives us hope in life. We use fashion as a mean to express our nostalgia and fondness towards tradition together with hope for the future in life. In recent years, sustainability bridges between tradition, future, fashion, and life reminding us of our responsibility to steward the planet for generations to come.

The Concept and Description of the Work

This wasinspired by flowerslonging toblossom.The delicate petals, vibrant colors, and graceful movements of flowershave beenendless inspirationfor manyartists.Longing for blossom suggests an innate desire for growth, beauty, and the fulfillment of potential. Like a flower waiting to bloom, it speaks to the anticipation and yearning for transformation and the realization of one's true self. This longing can symbolize hope, patience, and the belief in the eventual unfolding of beauty and purpose. It's a reminder that even in moments of waiting or dormancy, there's an inner drive pushing us towards growth and expression.
