About Moon Jung Chang : Moon Jung Chang earned her master of fine art degree at Fashion Institute of Technology of school of grad study (2017-2019), as a first cohort. When she graduated, she won the first prize from the department due to the excellent works.When she graduated, she won the first prize medal from the department due to the excellent works. She earned her BFA fashion design from Pratt Institute in New York (2016). When Moon entered Pratt, she received $96,000 scholarship, and awarded as Seemann-Burse Fund scholarship recipient because she placed in the President list annually, and she has graduated from Pratt with honors and received Pratt Circle Award. Moon’s aesthetic focus on the dichotomy between beauty and ugliness is an invaluable asset of her own visual vocabulary as a designer. The massive size and weight of black with cute elements such as a flowers, bows, and ruffles create the tensions of contrasts and emphasize the aesthetic of massive minimalism as well as the cuteness in ugly ways.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Moon’s aesthetic focus on the dichotomy between beauty and ugliness is an invaluable asset of her own visual vocabulary as a designer. Her binary perception illustrates the contrast of beauty and ugliness, and she always questions this as a designer and wants to solve the cliche and stereotype of the society as a designer's perspective. Her strengths are visualizing her ideas into 2D through 5D, including visual, sound, taste, with all senses, textile development, and creative pattern making and draping.
