A CMU graduate student’s collection was selected as a finalist in one of the best-known and competitive international student competitions in the world, the 2018 International Arts of Fashion Competition.
Li Jiang, a master’s degree student in apparel design from Hebei province in China, created a fashion collection titled “Surface and Essence.” She was inspired by optical illusion artworks and transforming 2D prints into 3D garments. Li’s collection will combine digital textile printing and laser cutting technologies to embellish the surface of the garments.
This year’s competition involved 104 schools and universities in 32 countries. Among 340 applicants, Li was picked as one of 50 finalists from 17 countries and 28 schools and universities.
Li’s collection will be shown Oct. 14-15 at the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco.
