"This piece comes from the deep reflection about the relationship between fashion, the human being, and his individuality. The meanings of the links that exist between human beings and clothing, the dependence generated between them, and the importance of this aspect of the human behavior, which defines us, represent us, and makes us able to communicate among ourselves."

"My thesis collection is entirely about highlighting consumer waste in our society and our habits to possess in our closets much more than what is actually worn. My work is a visual statement of this issue of waste through graphic symbolism and construction. The design of each garment is developed from the concept of a stripe to symbolize an “item” in our closets and is multiplied to create a visual representation of an average closet. Various elements within my garments can easily be manipulated in order to create multiple silhouettes; thus, creating more options of wear and decreasing the need to keep adding more items to our closets."

The sculptural and articulated forms are inspired by organic abstraction and paper origami folding techniques, and expressed through interconnected layers of fabric and structure. The collection seeks to challenge the potential of three dimensional shape in relation to the female silhouette." Zhuxuan He
