About Me

HI, MY NAME IS ZOU JIATONG, A 2021 GRADUATE FROM BUNKA FASHION COLLEGE

At the core, I am a conformist rebel, and I live in the future from the past.

Most of my inspiration comes from nature. And I like to express design with pop style to add more playful elements to my design. I also like using color that expresses a positive and optimistic attitude towards life. I hope to make people feel love and happiness through romantic and innocent colors.

INSPIRATION

MY INITIAL IDEA STARTED WITH THE CHINESE TUNIC SUIT, COMBINING WITH VARIOUS FLOWERS

The Chinese tunic suit is a combination of Chinese and Western culture, and once was widely worn in China. Now it has developed into a Chinese cultural formal wear that is rarely worn on a daily basis. I hoped to add modern design elements to traditional Chinese clothing and create clothes that people would like and accept in todays age.

Fashion is a cycle, and I wanted to find design elements to incorporate that could be determined popular in the past or present. At the same time, I’m committed to the principles of D&I (diversity and inclusion). I think people can wear whatever they want. Everyone should get rid of the shackles. A free nature should not be the so-called principle of imprisonment. I finished this series with a sense of optimism, hoping that it would provide people with some comfort in these difficult times.

DETAIL

FUSING THE CHINESE TUNIC SUIT WITH PLAYFUL MACARON COLOR PALETTE AND FLORALS

In order to create a relaxed feeling for the series, I added modern design elements such as oversize, hollowed out cuts, asymmetry and so on. A lot of hand-painted orchids and plum blossoms, as well as floral decorations made out of resin were created in the Pop style, and an organza is used to express the feeling of natural lights and shadows being cast.
