/Artist 藝術家/

Clothes are more than fashion to me; they hold life stories. Witnessing them fade sparked a mission to safeguard and share them. My artistic soul craves fusion of fashion and heritage and to understand the business behind beauty. I curate second-hand clothing, blending past trends with contemporary values that resonate with this generation: sustainability, authenticity, and a connection to something bigger than fleeting trends. I deliver training programmes to upskill teams, laying a foundation for my commitment to protecting diverse traditions. I bridge fashion and heritage, ensuring these stories become brighter, and our planet stays green along the way.

衣物對我來說不僅僅是時尚,它們承載著生命的故事。目睹它們逐漸褪色,激發了我保護和分享它們的使命。我充滿藝術靈魂,渴望將時尚與傳統融合,並理解美麗背後的商業運作。我策劃二手衣物,將過去的潮流與當代價值觀融合,這些價值觀與這一代人共鳴:可持續性、真實性,以及與超越短暫潮流的某種更大連結。我提供培訓計劃,提升團隊技能,為我致力於保護多樣傳統奠定基礎。我在時尚與傳統之間架起橋樑,確保這些故事變得更加光彩奪目,同時讓我們的星球保持綠色。

Perspectives on Tradition and Future, Sustainability and Fashion, and Life.
關於傳統與未來、永續與時尚生活的看見

I believe fashion shouldn't cost the Earth! We can honor tradition and sustainable practices by giving clothes a second chance, waste materials a chance, rocking new styles with safer technologies and saving water and landfills. It's about being fashionable while respecting tradition and protecting our planet for future generations. Let's make a more conscious relationship with fashion, one that benefit our lives, and the planet we call home!

我相信時尚不應該以犧牲地球為代價!我們可以通過賦予衣物第二次生命,給廢棄材料一個機會,運用更安全的技術創造新風格,並節約用水和減少填埋場來尊重傳統和可持續實踐。這關乎於在尊重傳統的同時,保護我們的地球,為未來的世代著想。我們應該與時尚建立一種更有意識的關係,這種關係既能改善我們的生活,又能保護我們稱之為家的地球!

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

I imagined a fresh future for fashion, where traditional denim gets a cool makeover! Inspired by "White Wings" a symbol of Earth's purity and beauty that should be preserved. The top is created with the selvedges waste. The closed high neckline, a nod to traditional styles represents protection and gives a sense of security. The feel of the top evokes gentleness and affection of wings. The laser bottom's texture was influenced by the fluidity and movement that wings convey. They were washed without bleach and stone with zero water discharge. The pattern and repetition found on the wings are represented by the inverse darts in the front pockets, and the garment's shade flow reflects the wings' colors. The nano-based softener is applied through eflow to complete the look. This circular design, utilizing innovative technology, reusing and reducing waste embodies the future of traditional denim and sustainable fashion. 

我想象了一個時尚的全新未來,在這個未來中,傳統的牛仔布煥發出新的酷炫風格!靈感來自「白色翅膀」,象徵著地球的純淨和美麗,應該被保護。這款上衣是由廢棄的布邊製成。高領設計,致敬傳統風格,代表保護並給人一種安全感。上衣的感覺如同翅膀般溫柔和親切。下擺的激光紋理受到翅膀流動性和動感的啟發。它們在沒有漂白劑和石頭的情況下清洗,且無水排放。翅膀上的圖案和重複性在前口袋的反向褶裡得到了體現,服裝的色調流動反映了翅膀的顏色。通過eflow技術應用的納米基柔軟劑完成了這個造型。這種循環設計,利用創新技術,重用和減少浪費,體現了傳統牛仔布和可持續時尚的未來。
