BA Final Collection, 2014 Ravensbourne Fasion Graduate.

Wei-An Chen’s S/S 15 collection “WHEN 60’S MEET PLEATS” combines 60’s fashion trends “space age” with Japanese paper craft origami to create a dynamic and colourful aesthetic. Chen’s exploration and experimentation with various origami styles are conveyed into three-dimensional textures within her collection. Chen’s print is inspired by Italian Artist Luciano De Liberato, and his use of simple lines combined with a vivid palette. She plays with the scale of her print to create a complex effect that transmits depth and dimension. Due to the mixture of bright-coloured digital print, Chen chooses to keep the silhouette simple yet sharp.

The starting point of this collection is the impasto oil panting by Jan Ironside. Visible brush strokes remind me of Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh.

The colours of this collection are from the impressionist painting characters: mixed and unmixed colour, to achieve an effect of intense colour vibration.

Iris is the key print of this collection from Vincent Van Gogh, with brush stroke effect. Claude Monet ‘s garden series influenced this season’s knitting; mix different types of yards, to create an intermingling of colour effect, uneven surface.

Overall, this collection is about mix with various texture and intense colours, wear skirt and trousers at the same time, to give consumer a fresh idea of how to dress in another way.
