Claudia Li is a designer who has just graduated from Parsons New School, New York. Here are some images from her graduate MFA collection called Origin, which has incredible silhouette and texture.
"The starting point of my collection was my birthplace, a very small rural area by Lake Dongting in China. This collection marks both my origins, as well as the origin of the technique I developed, which I call “roving.” While I was born in a small town in China, I lived in Singapore and then New Zealand as a child, studied in Beijing and London as an undergraduate, and now live in New York. The collection is very focused on experimental pattern making, creating new shapes and new silhouettes. To me, rather than making garments, I was sculpting with fabric." Claudia Li
