The Withering Flower Printed Textile

The Withering Flower is a celebration of the power of the flower image. The flower is a popular subject written as personification in Chinese literature. In contrast to the blooming flower’s popularity, images of the decaying flower are often associated with jinx and taboos. The collection looks at what shapes a community’s perception on what is sublime and abject. Designed in 100cm to 200cm length of tulle dresses, silkscreen printing on translucent mesh fabrics, the textile technique allows the prints to stay opaque and stretchy on mesh, creating an appearance of prints afloat in the air.

Angela Tsai-Jung Chiang, Taipei City based independent visual artist and fashion designer. She holds a Honours Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Design from Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design. Angela's 2016 graduate collection at Central Saint Martins devoted in languages of Oriental floral symbolism. Her graduate collection of screen printing and translucent patterns inspired her following years' research in recreating Chinese historical patterns via contemporary IP library system. In 2017, she collaborated with Shinehouse Theatre to design costume collections and unique patterns inspired by each character's symbolism in the story. The performance "The Third Episode of Armageddon" took place in Taiwan's National Experimental Theatre. Angela worked on bringing Romanticism and Maximalism into the performance through abundant layering of sheer printed florals. In 2018, she again collaborated with Shinehouse Theatre, performing the novel, "YUKOKU", by Mishima Yukio, taking place in Taiwan Traditional Theatre. The costume and pattern collection designed only in cyan and magenta colours, hand illustrated florals as metaphors to the brutal deconstruction on exquisitely subtle sentiments. In 2018, Angela designed an exclusive collection of Malaysian textile inspired uniform and pattern for ibis hotels in Kuala Lumpur City Centre. Joining Malaysia's national flower "Hibiscus" and the geometrical elements in traditional Malaysian Batiks, the heritage embraced design further aspired Angela to forward her research in Oriental pattern IP system. In 2019, Angela works in collaboration with Pumpkin Creative Inc. Together the two business partners create Jung's Wardrobe, an original character IP brand. Angela currently works across visual art, fashion, illustrations and pattern designs. In addition to her designworks, she is currently working on building her label of patterns, intimately inspired by the floral in her memories, and her love for the flower symbolism in Oriental literature.
