My graduation collection is inspired by the nature and the impressive paintings of Giuseppe Arcimboldo, along with different pigeon photographs. According to Arcimboldo’s paintings, i came up with an idea of the use of animal skins in clothing nowadays, this use is now outdated and environmentally unfriendly and therefore this leads to looking at alternative sources of material which is not animal based. Therefore i tried to create some fake skins or fur-like materials instead using real fur or leather, which is more sustainable and affordable. I am fully influence by the structural and layering collage of Arcimboldo’s paintings.
Layering, Textiles, and craftwork, these are the elements, which are mainly seen on me and my work. I always wear earth tone and muddy colour clothes with multi layering. Highly interested in creating intricate pattern and delicate design details and textiles. Inspired by art and graphical elements. I always works with loose fit and unisex style. As I believe that there are no sexual differentiate between male and female in nowadays fashion. Structure silhouette and asymmetric cutting are usually seen in my work, i like to explore the character of the material and apply into her design and textile. What i thinks, what i likes, what i see, what i believe, are all about my love of fashion. In the coming future, i would like to have more hand-on experience in the real fashion industry.
