A new birth after ten years’ preparation Anything of value needs to go through a process of refinement, just like this graduation project, it is a reshaping of traditional aesthetics, a ever-changing process of multiple reconstructions, and the Path of Sichuan created over several decades from scratch.
Remodeling: Combining Eastern elements with Western minimalism, utilizing textile intangible cultural heritage elements such as Sichuan embroidery, tie dyeing, and ethnic clothing craftsmanship to re apply and rediscover the natural harmony between clothing and the human body. Here are the reshaping of the mysterious symbols of Sanxingdui, the reshaping of traditional Chinese clothing silhouettes, and the reshaping of fashion values in the post pandemic era.
Rebuilding: Faced with the new trends of the digital age, everything is likely to be split, restructured, and rebuilt. By comparing the weight of materials, complementing the shades of colors, and contrasting the complexity of texture changes, we seek new breakthroughs in symmetry and balance. After reconstruction, there is a simple, natural, and comfortable lifestyle attitude of "less is more". In the process of cultural collision between the East and the West, it achieves the harmony and inclusiveness of each beauty and the common beauty.

Since our graduate design work first participated in China International College Student Fashion Week with the theme of "The Path of Sichuan" in 2021, we have been updating in the inheritance and innovation of Sichuan culture and the inheritance and promotion of Sichuan spirit! This year's design work is more dynamic than previous designs, and reshaping and rebuilding not only requires courage, but also wisdom and perseverance.
