DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Improbable Journey

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Womenswear Collection

INSPIRATION:
“Improbable Journey” is a collection, which expressed the journey that I experienced in New York City half year ago. The uptown and downtown architectures and the urban artworks along the subway stations such urban concepts have been transferred to the design elements with hand-interlacing technique and felting technique to archive the philosophy of Multi-cultural Manhattan. Beside of that, the cutting of the outfits are inspired by the soulful subway station at 14st. By applying the elements of the subway station to express a soulful feeling which I have first felt on that midnight. Also, the outfit style also aimed to expressed 80s fashion with sportswear inspired style mixed with elegant style which influenced by New Yorkers style which I met in New York. Bomber jacket and denim jacket are the iconic style from New York Hipsters. The combination brings a concept of the difference between Uptown and downtown cultures. The colors of the collection reflected the mood of New York City which inspired by a rail-road garden named” Highline” at Chelsea area. Sunlight, apartments , sea and evergreen garden can be found together in Manhattan.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Collection is about expressing the diversity of a metropolitan by handmade textiles (hand-felted wool and hand interlacing technique)and innovative silhouette. Transforming different shapes of the architectures in the city into the outfit's silhouette is the main design direction to show the abstract idea of the fusion of the architecture and multi-culture of a metropolitan.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The collection includes 29 items.
