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

Tradition and the Future: Tradition is the foundation of our culture, the accumulation of history, and possesses unique value and significance. Tradition and the future are not opposing concepts but rather complementary and mutually reinforcing.

Sustainable Development: Sustainable development refers to meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. We need to focus on the rational use of resources, environmental protection, and social equity, achieving a balance between economic growth and ecological harmony.

Fashion and Life: Fashion is a part of popular culture, reflecting people's pursuit and expression of beauty. Fashion is closely related to life; it is not only manifested in clothing and beauty but also represents an attitude and way of life.

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

The inspiration is drawn from the qipao, featuring a qipao collar design adorned with button decorations. The leather utilized is vegetable-tanned leather, dyed using the unique tie-dye technique of the Bai ethnic group in Dali. The modern design of tie-dyed leather products harbors a more diverse style tendency, juxtaposing traditional cultural attributes with contemporary aesthetics, resulting in a unique sense of fashion. Dyed leather is combined with waxed leather, and leather embroidery is applied to the leather surface, accentuating the beauty of Chinese-style aesthetics.
