SO MINT! I AM ROOTED, BUT I FLOW by Shuting Qiu

Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp '19

SO MINT! is a series of posts on fresh graduates in fashion, jewellery and design from around the world. Handpicked by Current Obsession.

If I were not a designer, a writer would be my dream.

My way of expression has gradually changed from words to relying on visuals to deliver emotion. I worship Virginia Woolf; her persona is an inspiration, and I want to render her in my collection. Visual inspiration came from my trip to Mumbai this year: rich colors of India and the textures of beaded embroidery. Referencing English style, I will combine masculine tartan fabrics with rich floral prints and cut and suiting with colorful beaded embroidery, so as to present a free and heroic, romantic and neurotic ‘writer’.

 

Jewellery inspired by the ethnic headpieces and hairstyle, collaboration with Vann Kwok.
