Introduction | 展覽介紹
This exhibition attempts not only to develop the way how the Eastern perspectives of the body and dress can be interlaced with modern fashion design elements, but also to present an opportunity for the viewers to witness how an ancient underlying philosophy of the Eastern culture can be embodied in the form of creative fashion art.
Various aspects of the Five Phases theory (五行) transformed into essential design elements for this project. The colors and motifs chosen are the five colors and four heavenly creatures- blue dragon (靑龍), white tiger (白虎), red phoenix (朱雀), and black tortoise (玄武). Transferred from the mural paintings of the Complex of Goguryeo Tombs onto the various surfaces of the works by digital printing.
