As a proud Taiwanese national of aboriginal descent, I draw inspiration from design elements in my culture as a recurring theme in my designs. In my 2018 Fall/Winter Fashion Collection, Traditional x Unconventional, I revisited my aboriginal roots to inspire my textile design and color palette, and I combined these with the spacesuit construction techniques I was developing from my internship at Final Frontier Design, a Brooklyn based spacesuit manufacturer. The patterns of my collection can be distinctly linked to the unique designs of traditional aboriginal beads made by the Paiwan tribe, which is considered one of the three treasures of Paiwan culture. I also decided to create a motif of the hundred pacer snake totem that is revered by our tribe.
