楊雨菲 服裝設計 本預
Fashion, once merely known as something related to clothing, now becomes a significant symbol carrier of self-expression and self-realization. In these three collections, I want to use my works to show people a new way of communication with both others and them.
The third project Project Me is the most representative collection for me. In this project, I chose the movie Cries and Whispers as my inspiration to talk about the ambivalent feelings in different kinds of relationships. This movie, set in the end of the 19th century, is about three sisters and a servant who struggle with the terminal cancer of one of the sisters. The servant is close to her, while the other two sisters confront their emotional distance from each other. Nowadays, everyone is too eager to be loved by others, but fail to know how to express their feelings. Ultimately, their relationship tends to be alienated and they start to blame each other. There is an inspirational scene in this movie where the main character (Thuli) takes off layers of her clothes and changes into pajamas, which is like us being wrapped in layers of constraint and finally can be real to face ourselves. Internal hiding and external extrusion are the main points of my design, so I decided to use layers of fabric to represent the external pressure and use the design of outside underwear to represent the real self that should be shown. I hope people can reflect on their own way of self-expression through my design and start to be brave to show the real self.
