Artist's Statement
In some areas, especially Asia, gender rates at birth could hit 300 boys for every 100 girls illustrating the most severe situation of baby girl gendercide. The collection reveals systematic gender inequality in multiple aspects ranging from basic birth and living rights to societal engagement and to self-realization rights. To present these issues, the looks focus on computer-aided silhouette design and patternmaking as well as colorful fabric prints that are developed from hand painting. Hand pleats and beads are used to add textural sensation to the collection, while 3D color printed hardware brings in more depth of detail. The collection is realized with special thanks to sponsors Mimaki and Swarovski.
Raised in Beijing China, Shine He Sang combines architecture with fashion in her designs. Prior to earning her MFA at FIT, she studied fashion at Parsons, and holds a graduate degree in architecture design from Columbia University. Her work integrates digital approach with craft methods from 2D to 3D to address societal issues, especially feminism topics. She seeks an ideal Tomorrowland free of gender bias. During her study in the program, she received the Mimaki 2021 Innovation Award and was a finalist for the 2021 Geoffrey Beene Design Masters Scholar Award.
