Human beings have been exploring the mysteries of the universe since ancient times. This three-piece ensemble, which is made of silk brocade and exquisite lace accented with crystals and metal trim, captures the mysteriousness of the universe.
The three-piece special occasion wear is inspired by the connection between humankind and the universe, which includes a crystal-decorated satin cape, a rhinestone-trimmed corset, and a fancy transparent lace dress.
The top of the cape is decorated with crystals with a gradual transition. It demonstrates the starry sky of the universe.
The corset symbolizes the constraint of the human with the earth at present and the dream for freedom. It is trimmed by two different shapes of rhinestones.
Humankind is the existence of the immensity of the universe. We are so lucky to be here.
Meet the Designer
As a person who has been fascinated by design and creativity since I was young, I chased my dream to come to one of the top fashion design schools in the world. My “aesthetic” design is visually attractive, yet functional. I chose to focus on special occasion wear and also started my brand, expressing my aesthetics to the world. My thesis is inspired by the connection between humankind and the universe.
