张威 服装设计 本科预科
I focus on balancing the sense of design with wearability when designing garments, and I love finding inspiration from past fashion, which is reflected in my project "TIMES". The collection drew inspiration from the black-and-white film "Modern Times," which portrays the struggling working-class life in the United States during the Great Depression in dark humor. I researched typical Americans wearing in the 1930s, extracting some popular fashion element at the time, such as H line dress, as well as the neat and tidy suits of the capitalists in the movies and the tattered oil-stained aprons and denim jumpsuits of the working class. I also combined the screws, buttons, gears and other elements that appeared in the movie to make fabric manipulation samples. I slightly burned some gears, screws and buttons using a flame gun, trying to create a retro yet modern casual style.
