In this collection, Yina Hwang was mainly inspired by shapes that are symmetric and asymmetric with a touch of underground music culture. She curated this collection based on her pivotal moment of self embracement to create a collection of functional yet abstract garments and accessories to embody the story of her experience. Every print and fabric in the project is original and she mainly used PU leather, Satin, Power Mash, and Spandex for the base of the fabrics.
The first work in this series uses the existing temperature-change fabrics on the market, and the garment pattern is designed to highlight the structural line, and the structural line is closed with a sticker. During the temperature change, the closed structural line cannot interact with the temperature change. The material is also changing.
The Effect Of Paradox gives energy to all fashion products that this pattern is applied, and also gives sophisticated feeling. The glittering shape of plankton on the sea was expressed like blue flowers blooming. It is a project that expresses the beauty of nature that designer have seen in repetitive daily lives and can breathe light and hope into everyone who suffers from the hardships of the world.
Unisex scarves with unique digitally-printed contemporary patterns produced using a bespoke software programme called MovISee that uses body movement to reconstruct digital data such as photos and reveal organic details not possible solely by computer programming. The software enables the designer to create asymmetrical and non-repeat patterns, resulting in multifaceted and playful scarves that can be worn in different ways according to ones mood or occasion, and are unlike any other products in the textiles or fashion accessories market.
River to Ocean, seeing who you are while flowing your way. It combines Kou’s textile work with Nie's 3D wearable sculptures that resemble splashing liquid frozen in time. This capsule collection contains 6 looks in total, and it was divided into 3 themes which are “Meet with flowers”, “Meet with air”, and “Meet with earth”, which are also three metaphorical elements as one’s diverse experience in life to help him/her to see the true self.
DefeXtiles is a rapid and low-cost technique to produce realistic high-fidelity textiles on 3D printers. The work demonstrates that under-extrusion defects can be finely controlled to quickly print thin flexible textiles into complex 3D shapes. This approach enables a myriad of applications including printing full sized garments, deformable tangible interfaces, and ultra-tough shuttlecocks.
