Summary/Artist's Statement
Image 1: The lightweight and water-repellent parka blurs the line between the daytime wear of a career professional, yet stylish for an evening party. It combines a tyvek shell with detachable sleeves and an organza layer revealed by a leather piece, which can be worn as a skirt or a strapless dress separately.
Image 2: Featuring a new level of versatility, this three-in-one parka is perfect for commuters. It can be mixed and matched with an adjustable bra top and wide leg leather pants.
Image 3: "Hood up or down, depending on the mood." The epaulettes with snaps for a backpack are ready for a city adventure.
Image 4: This outfit is designed for the athletic wearer to go for a run in the breeze. The discreet opening at the back neck is a good fit for a ponytail.
Image 5: With namesake brand logo prints in black and fuchsia gradient, the backpack can be transformed into nylon bermuda shorts (Look 2) and a tote bag.
Video1 : "Betwixt and Between" collection, look one: This collection is designed for women of all backgrounds, to encourage and empower them to find strength within themselves, along with moments that they can savor.
Video 2: Behind the Scene: designed, prototype-developed, pattern-made, fabric-cut and sample-sewn by Jingwen Xuan
