/Artist 藝術家/

I am a junior student from Donghua University with a strong interest in sustainability and new materials. This year, I have also chosen sustainability as my major, and I possess a wealth of imagination and creativity. I hope to offer new perspectives and possibilities for the sustainable development of the clothing industry.


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

As a fashion design student, I believe sustainable fashion is crucial for the industry's future. Embracing eco-friendly materials and ethical production practices not only reduces environmental impact but also promotes social responsibility, ensuring a healthier planet and fair labor conditions for all.

The Concept and Description of the Work

Mushrooms, a fascinating organism composed of mycelium and fruiting bodies, inspired me to think about sustainable materials. I wondered if mycelium, which is found in the soil, could also be used as a unique material. The structure of mycelium exhibits a lightness and tension, like a bird's wings, that can provide the ability to soar. Additionally, mycelium has a thin and transparent quality that is highly attractive. This inspiration was rooted in the imagination of spreading wings in the light. It symbolizes freedom, strength, and respect for nature. Let us feel the symbiosis between humans and nature and respect for nature in the light of spreading wings.
