關於傳統與未來、永續與時尚生活的看見

I believe that sustainability in fashion is not just a trend but a necessary evolution for the industry. Teaching students to integrate eco-friendly practices, such as using sustainable materials and reducing waste, is crucial. We must instill a sense of responsibility towards the environment and encourage innovative design solutions that balance aesthetics with sustainability. By fostering a mindset that prioritizes ethical production and mindful consumption, we prepare future designers to lead the industry towards a more sustainable and ethical future, ensuring that fashion can thrive without compromising the health of our planet. 

我認為時尚的可持續性不僅僅是一種趨勢,而是行業所必需的演變。教導學生融合環保實踐,例如使用可持續材料和減少浪費,是至關重要的。我們必須灌輸對環境的責任感,並鼓勵創新的設計解決方案,平衡美學與可持續性。通過培養優先考慮倫理生產和有意識消費的心態,我們為未來的設計師鋪平道路,引領行業走向更可持續和道德的未來,確保時尚在不損害地球健康的情況下蓬勃發展。

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

This design concept is inspired by the "Tao Te Ching," drawing upon the infinite variations created by a beam of light expanding from small to large, forming corresponding patterns and motifs. It also integrates concepts from the "Book of Changes," resulting in two symmetrical shapes with contrasting yin-yang patterns that reflect the principles of "the interaction of opposites" and "mutual dependence." The overall design utilizes laser surface treatment on non-woven fabrics to present abstract and versatile patterns, incorporating changes in light and shadow to embody a contemporary design aesthetic. 

這個設計概念靈感來自《道德經》,它藉由一束光從小到大擴展所創造的無限變化,形成相應的圖案和紋樣。它還融合了《易經》的概念,產生兩個對稱形狀,並具有對比的陰陽圖案,反映了“對立相互作用”和“相互依存”的原則。整體設計利用激光表面處理非織造布,呈現抽象而多變的圖案,結合光影變化,以體現現代設計美學。
