About:

Justin Chi is a Taiwanese designer who focuses on user experience and functionality in fashion design. As an attentive observer, he is inspired by the curiosities and queries of things that we are familiar with, and how they integrate into the life of the user. Through various types of research and production processes, such as repeated experiments and collaboration, he emphasizes the forgotten detail in a simple way. His designs are informed from observation and integration, not just focusing on problem solving. From personal research to cross-disciplinary collaborations, he establishes his own design methodology which centers around the target user joining the design process to tell a story.

Specialisms:

Fine Art Apparel

As an attentive observer, the designer is inspired by the curiosities and queries of things people are familiar with which integrate into daily life. ‘Put on – Take Off’ explores the relationships between everyday fasteners, user actions and clothing structure in a playful way making wearing more interactive. To dress, the body interacts with different fasteners, moving fingers, bending arms or straightening legs. Fasteners may be buttons, zips, snaps and so on. Through the combination of these objects and body actions, each piece of fabric connects together and moves closer to the body. The design simplified the clothing silhouette and sewing process. Each look has an assembling instructions book, consumers can shop the pre-cut fabric package, following the steps to make their own garment.
