This collection is about creating a dialogue between the garments and people who communicate through music. Peiyang wants to recreate musicians’ images on stage and transfer musical symbols into garments, textiles and accessories. Color schemes and textiles designs were reminiscent of musical narratives created by designer. Performativity is explored through silouhettes and functionality. Emotions are expressed by the rhythm of patterns and movements of garments. Pieces in this collection could be styled in different ways to match new stories. This collection also includes textiles made with Chinese artisans, to present designer’s cultural heritage, and save endangered artisanship. Peiyang is eager to tell stories through unique fabrications and honor the impeccable craftsmanship.
