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

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.

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.
