Close your eyes and think of Technology… Obviously, a lot of input, images come to your mind. Then, if you close your eyes again and you try to think about what is Modernity in design today? Blackout? Blurred images and faded inspirations?

No worries, here is some help…

 

Wang Li Ling comes to my mind: she materialized Asian Modernity. As a former winner of the Taiwan Fashion Design Award, she was among the outstanding designers showcasing endless creativity from Taiwan. More than just a designer, Wang Liling is an entrepreneur with a purpose…

I N S P I R A T I O N S . . .

They come from everywhere, especially in my dreams – Walking down the street, I get inspirations from the air, the sun, the mist, the breathing, and the wind. However, it is in my dream state that the inspirations form into ideas. I’d have to give this credit to my nonstop working brain.

 

A R T . . .

Art is an artist’s spirit.

It’s about how the artist presents his/her idea to the world. Anyone can be an artist, it’s not about the technical skills. It’s about the way to reveal a deep secret from the heart.

 

 

T E C H N O L O G Y . . . 

In fashion-technology field, it’s always been the fusing of art and science. It creates a new point of view, with a playful touch, in design.

 

A T T R A C T I O N . . . 

I’m attracted by the fact that technology is an easier tool than nature. To make invisible into visible, technology can help interacting with nature.

 

 

 

D O W N S I D E . . . 

Although technology has brought us much convenience, it’s also making people less motivated.

 

F U T U R E . . . 

Technology will replace lots of human jobs. Pollution will get worse. Natural resources will get less and more expensive in real terms. That means the idea of power-efficient will be essential in any product we use. Also, reuse and recycle will be more important than ever.

 

 

 

T E X T I L E . . .

I wish there will be more smart textile designs by then. Ones that would save our planet such as solar paneled textile or accessories that could collect kinetic energy. Presenting them in an aesthetic and interesting way.

 

C O L L E C T I O N . . .

In this collection, I tried to recreate an experience I had once in New York during the Fashion Week. After it snowed, I was observing the process of the snow getting dirtier from people’s footsteps. In this collection it’s about the color story. It started with white and graduated to grey and finally to silver. We also added the signature ‘silver-grey’ and our newly developed ‘reflective white’ into this color story.

 

 

 

T E C H N I Q U E . . .

Every season we incorporate the idea of interacting with nature. We use a lot of functional materials relating to light element.

 

A C T  O F  R E B E L L I O N . . .

Despite the advanced technology that we have nowadays, we have many changes in front of us that we need to face. It requires a lot of courage from people to recognize these problems and to speak out. Today, all the movements calling for more equality and self-conscious about society issues are the way to express a form of awareness: environmental problems from plastic ban to ocean cleaning for instance reminded us the importance of sustainability and rebellion.

 

P R O P A G A N D A . . .

Revver magazine always points out spontaneous outlook from art. That’s what makes art so appealing. It reflects different feeling and thoughts on people but it let people to share and to connect.
