Parsons MFA Fashion Design and Society Presents 2020 Class Collection
Every year during New York Fashion Week, the designers graduate ParsonsMFA Fashion Design and Society The program sends their unique creations running down runways and out into the world.
This year, as the Coronavirus continues to disrupt live plans and events such as fashion shows, MFA programs, like other events. Parsons and The New School, coming up with innovative and attractive solutions to showcase their students’ work.
Partner with 1 Granary, Shelley Fox Program Director and JOFF Associate Director created a documentary film which captures the designers as they work to complete their thesis collection. The designers were also interviewed about their collection inspiration, their changing perspective on the future of fashion, and the benefits of completing their degrees remotely.
Below is a view of each designer, as well as a statement about their thesis collection.
“A man wears a dress, which is taboo against social values, which is a forbidden pleasure that I enjoyed very much when I was a child,” wrote Chi Yu Han in his thesis statement. “At that time I had not been taught what a dress means in terms of gender or as social significance, but I saw the dress itself. I was blown away by its softness, huge volume, and how it moves with my body. Something soft like a cloud or jellyfish, something with a beautiful floral print, something that makes me happy. Growing up made me rethink the relationship between dress and myself.
It is the fragile side of masculinity and the aggressive side of femininity, how they rely on and appear on each other, or perhaps the very crumbling and hazy moments captured during aggressive interactions. I further developed and visualized this idea by re-experiencing the dress. I noticed how I felt mentally and physically the next time I put on a dress after all these years – which was surprising instead of feeling awkward, I felt empowered, free and comfortable. “
“My collection is all about programming opportunities,” explains Jessica Guzman in her thesis statement. “I created a coincidence procedure in knitwear that allows for variety to emerge. The nature of knitwear is both precise and technical, so I’m interested in exploring new ways to rethink knitwear that allow for more fuzzy results that can’t be anticipated. I see the potential for knitwear not only in the traditional sense, but to really inform the shapes and silhouettes of all kinds of woven fabrics. I approach knitwear as the inner structure of the garment, so that woven garments that are usually very precisely formulated are freed from these pre-designed silhouettes.
In my practice I think it’s important to relinquish control over the process to allow room for unaccounted for variations to arise. By creating a process that cannot be controlled, matter is given the freedom to develop and change. The end result is always different. Proper replication is not possible. This means that every time a garment is produced, a different shape will appear and only arrive at its final form when it is worn on the body. “
“I started making my own comic strip from a young age and Henry Darger had a big influence on me,” Kaiwen Shi explained in his thesis statement. “Darger’s most famous work depicts floral landscapes inhabited by children and fantastic creatures. However, there are other terror scenes depicting young children being tortured and also slaughtered. The images are informed by her childhood experience of escaping from a gruesome orphanage. The wonderland is almost like another universe, but the war between the children and the soldiers powerfully reveals real-life lessons, which is a magical way of seeing reality. I am very curious about the tension between imaginary fantasy and real life, and comics are my fantasy land to recreate the things and people I know in real life.
The choice of materials in the collection is closely related to my image preferences. Most of my fabrication is made of synthetic materials such as beads and glitter thread, they create this world with an unreal feeling. I use different types of beads to make my fabrics with various techniques such as wire beading, beading weaving, and beading embroidery. And I’ve also used the tassels technique to mimic the drawing process, which makes this collection a lot of fun. “
“I like to work within the boundaries of something serious, like a suit, and by abstracting, create something funny and have a sense of humor,” explained Karen Heshi in her thesis statement. “The suit can be cut so that you can’t tell the difference with the naked eye, but it retains the elements of the suit. I want to ask the question, why should a suit look like a suit? Why should all clothing have one definition or one form? Why do we live in a society of rules, dress codes, and expectations? I think we can be whatever we want, life and existence, physical and digital, can be as abstract as we make it, and that’s the ideology that translates into my entire collection. “
“This collection is an exploration of cultural melancholy, seeing the longing, loss and incompleteness,” said Lily Xu in her thesis statement. “This is a manifestation of the ongoing dialogue about identity, connection and release to cultural roots and kinship ties.
Based on old photos taken by my grandfather who I don’t know very well, various past photos and unknown places inform the development of the knitwear. By reinterpreting a photo using a variety of techniques from print, painting and knitting, the images are brought together through different clothing layering and fabrications. ‘On Longing’ is a reconstruction of non-existent memories, making emotions and intangible thoughts come true, through experimental forms of clothing and knitwear making. “
“This collection is based on the relationship between me and mass-produced goods,” explained Qingzi Gao in his thesis statement. “Born and raised in central China, I consider mass-produced toys and plastic accessories to be one of the most important components of my childhood. My parents took me to a small commodity market to buy dresses and accessories to dress me up. With ten plastic butterfly hairpins in my hair, I feel like a princess.
Through my collection, I want to use the toy production process to tell a story that has two sides. One side, is I celebrate the “fruit” of mass production, synthetic feasts. The tag “Made in China” has always been associated with negative and critical words such as “cheap” and “poor quality”. From my point of view, these tags make all the plush toys and adorable accessories accessible to me. And Chinese production is advancing with time that I’m proud of. Everyone in the world benefits from it. These “made in china” items are associated with all the love and memories in my life. They are priceless for my childhood. The intense, hyper perfection I’m trying to achieve comes from a small commodity market that’s visually overwhelming. Being so influenced, I am like a mass produced toy and I want to tell real toy stories through my collection. “
“My job as a designer centers on blurring the fixed functions and codes found in objects, garments and accessories and finding solutions to not only free our fluid bodies from the confines of clothing, but also extend the life of objects over time in wardrobes and spaces. our household from time to time, ”explained Samantha Diorio in her thesis statement.
Functionality is at the heart of my design practice, because I believe the true essence of design is about solving problems, particularly with regard to the longevity of clothes and bodies. Because of this, I’ve created a garment system that can be expanded, flipped, and dissected into clothes and accessories that can be adjusted simultaneously. It is engineered with fixed and free deadstock as well as reusable fabrication such as stretch, webbing, and melt knitwear to create functional, adaptable pieces that can change between garment and accessory. This customization and functionality allows for a performance-based approach to dress and evokes sentimentality that reflects my interest in enhancing the intimacy we have with clothing in our domestic space and in our lives as a whole. “
“STRANGE REAL, BORNING FICTION is an exploration of how superficiality growing up on the outskirts of a city can lead to an interest in strange or taboo things,” Sarah Lim explained in her thesis statement. “Strongly influenced by the strong graphic language of industrial and experimental music / noise and b-grade body horror films, the film takes a DIY zine-making approach across a variety of media, including illustration / print design, knitwear, and tailoring.”
“For my thesis collection, I explored the tensions between traditional cultural identity and displacement status in the modern landscape. By combining personal experiences with traditional Chinese art forms, I tried to rethink the meaning of culture in a personal way,” explained Shuxuan Li.
“I chose Chinese calligraphy as a symbol to explore” meaning “for me, inspired by the radical construction of Chinese characters, meaning starting from the first stroke, followed by the second and third strokes, the literal meaning of the character is then resolved through the practice of graffiti by graffiti. . So based on this thinking, instead of following the traditional cutting system on clothes, I tried to construct the meaning of clothes by following the principles of Chinese Character construction – the process of scribbling by strokes. Using the strokes of Chinese characters as negative space, by changing the scale and tension of the positive and negative spaces on a sheet of cloth, to create different effects on the body, tension between fit and loose, stability and collapse, restraint and rebellion, solid and brittle … I want to use the whole journey to find traditional self-expression in my own fashion language. “
“My thesis collection is about the visual recording of images on my body,” explained Zhuoran Li in his thesis statement. I started to draw “marks” on my body and then used transparent paper to trace the drawing. I never dared to face my body head on because I always walked slower than others. But this time I want to face it. I thought it was special. I want to communicate with my body.
Knitting is a means of representing “marks” or the making of my second ink and skin. Also, I use color as a tool to express shadows and divide shapes across the knitwear design. With a fully crochet form, I link it into a geometric shape to explain how I view certain body parts as specific geometric shapes. And I rearranged the spatial relationship between body and geometry at different angles. The softness and texture of the knitting make geometry and body form a close relationship. “
