Thesis CollectionBeyond Boundary Beyond Uniform Winter 2024
In my latest collection, 'Beyond Boundary Beyond Uniform,' I explored the intriguing juxtaposition of Eastern tradition and Western dynamism. This collection weaves together the disciplined, uniformed ethos of Chinese school life with the spirited, individualistic essence of American football. Drawing inspiration from my own experiences at summer camp in the U.S., I delve into the visual and symbolic contrasts between the regimented daily routines of Chinese students and the expressive freedom of American youth sports. Through this collection, I aim to challenge the norms of uniformity, transforming simple school and sports uniforms into complex knitwear that reflects the nuanced identities of those who wear them. This line not only pushes the boundaries of traditional fashion but also serves as a narrative of cultural synthesis and personal expression.
