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

Traditional Chinese culture is a huge valuable treasure in my opinion, I really like it! Different forms of traditional Chinese intangible cultural heritage in different regions have their own special strengthsAs designers, we can discover interesting design elements and carry on the cultural heritage.It likes a connection from past to the present and the future.

I strongly support sustainable designI have seen the physical pollution caused by various dyes in different parts of the factory in Fujian, China, and at the same time, we also felt the noise pollution and the impact of smell. The factories in China are small and scattered, 80% of the factories we visited are like this, we can't change the way they operate, but as a designer we have a stronger position on the concept of sustainability in our daily life.

The Concept and Description of the Work

This design is inspired bythetraditional Chinese architecture, borrowing elements from the architectural features of the Song Dynasty in southern China. The incorporation of water corridors and vegetation creates a unique cultural ambiance. The patterns are derived from famous ancient pagodas, temples, and bridges, and are arranged in a continuous four-sided pattern. To embody the concept of sustainability, we have employed eco-friendly digital printing technology, combining it with fashion. The design utilizes mesh fabric and incorporates techniques that create a sense of depth, aiming to express the fluidity of the water town in southern China. This collection showcases the beauty of a unique modern Chinese style while conveying the significant values of sustainable development. By integrating eco-friendly digital printing technology, we not only reduce reliance on chemicals used in traditional printing processes but also minimize energy and water consumption, thereby promoting the concept of sustainable design.
