张小薇 服装设计 本科预科
I am a fashion designer and like to decorate every series of works with exaggerated silhouettes and many distinctive fabrics. In the first work Orlando, I want to try the possibility of collision between Rococo style and Cyberpunk elements to show the aesthetic feeling between the two boundaries. The final piece is a ready-made garment with a big skirt. I combined the Rococo style dress of the umbrella skirt with colorful Cyberpunk elements, decorating the skirt body with fresh pastoral patterns and the skirt with bright lights. The collision between them has produced a unique aesthetic feeling.
Also, I try to reflect on social phenomena via my works. Nowadays, most people pay attention to body shape. Some people are ashamed and dissatisfied because of their size. I express this social phenomenon in my work Fat Fetishism. People often force themselves to take in sweets and fats to make themselves happy due to pressure and reasons. I think this is uncontrollable. Elastic bands are used in my works. Because elastic bands don't have any restrictions on body shape. Therefore, I hope people don't feel ashamed and afraid because of their size, which may also be happy. Art can show ideas that cannot be expressed in words uniquely. The artist's instinct is to discover the beauty in life and society and create a different artistic world.
