DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Remains

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Contemporary QiPao

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration is from Chinese Relics. China possesses over six thousand years history. It is a great treasure. It is worth to study and investigate the evolve of the Chinese Relics. Among the Chinese Relics, “Ceramics” is the most representation which is most popular no matter from the royal and people. Even today, people are also fond of Ceramics. It is easy recognizing from the event of auctions which held seasonal in worldwide. “Ceramics”, as typically Chinese Relics, painting theme on ceramics is showing the life style and wishes of the people, not only the small scale of Royal, it is broadly present to the middle and lower class as well. In my study, core Chinese Aesthetic standards of fashion and Feng Shui (interior and environment design) are unchanged. They like see-through and layering. Inspiration from above, I would like to design a dress to bring the implication and feature of ceramics from the old dynasty to contemporary fashion.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
I recognize many designers will put Chinese style as their theme on runway show. Most of them trend to focus on royal class symbolic such as dragon pattern, Mandarin collar and golden material. My design is showing an importance sense about implication of graphics and Chinese Aesthetic standards resulted it by re-design from the old dynasty to now. And try to provoke people who are forgotten their culture and ethnicity whatever we are in i-generation.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Chinese Relics, Painting theme of “Ceramics”, the art of QiPao, the behavior of core Chinese Aesthetic standards and comparison with today, I-generation, we are in a Space.

CHALLENGE:
The hardest part is how to arrange belts grouping to fit the human bodies. Belt is without elasticity, thin and not like the fabric which can cover the whole body. The main challenge is how to convert the thin belt into fabric-like surface, how to express it’s graphic pattern on the hollow portion to enrich the visualize impact. Finally I decide to shape it directly on the human figure by only screw.
