There is no question that we love what the students at SCAD are up to! Recently, over the course of ten weeks, SCAD Hong Kong photography and fashion students worked in collaboration through sketches, process books and test shoots to create this year’s Senior Collection Look Book. Working with professional models and hair and makeup, the students spent two days in the studio photographing 38 looks from nine collections - all with distinct sets and lighting to enhance the designer’s brand. Have a look at their fantastic work below!

Dualism is the marriage of two opposing worlds; black and pastels, geometric and organic lines, the two sides meeting together to celebrate this edgy yet feminine collection. Pixel art is the inspiration for many of the aesthetic elements found within the collection such as the precise manual arrangements of square isolated shapes. Laser cutting, bonding, and color blocked intarsia were used to manipulate fabrics, and create unique shapes and silhouettes. Fabrics used include black satin and organza, along with leather in varying shades of pastels. The collection is for women looking to combine a soft yet strong wardrobe, age 25-35.

The concept of “Breakthrough” is to ask people to show every aspect of themselves, good or bad, right or wrong. True authenticity emerges from an honest and transparent state of being. The garment silhouettes are inspired by Victorian Era fashion, which are big and structured to represent a strong image. By tracing lines from original collages of body parts, lines and graphic designs emerged, which were stitched into the collection fabrics. The colors used are a variety of cool toned purples as it has a feeling of royalty and dignity. Silver was used to create a modern touch and a light reflective contrast. The fabrics are a mixture of wool, leather and an original had generated fabric manipulation using layers of destroyed chiffon fabric. Buckles and straps tie the collection together and represent the creeping feelings of confinement and isolation. The target customer is a woman who likes young and sporty looks and is willing to take a sartorial risk. The clothes are meant to make women feel both strong and empowered, yet vulnerable.

Restrained is a conceptual collection inspired by Hong Kong’s buildings and politics. Bondage elements have been used throughout the collection to show the restrained struggle of its residents. Black and gray represent the urban concrete jungle and the hopeless, oppressive feelings of despair. Red signifies the fight and anger over the many political injustices that culminated, resulting in the Umbrella Revolution. Garments are made of denim, wool and leather in a minimalist palette. Bleaching, dyeing and pleat details provide a unique customized look and texture. To create a modern and clean aesthetic, heat bonding was used to finish seams and frame the perimeter of garments.

VAPWKW is a collection inspired by the music and art micro-genre Vaporwave, and Wong Kar Wai’s masterpiece ‘In the Mood For Love’. The collection contains dark colored fabrics and iridescent plastic associated with Vaporwave, which mixes nostalgic and surrealist references. ‘In the Mood For Love’ provides aesthetic inspiration of Hong Kong in the 1960’s, through color, texture, print and written text extracted from the film and subverted to create unique and contemporary fabric manipulations. Texture is created through multi-colored embroidery applied to denim and bonded jersey. Laser engravings on denim were inspired by the wallpaper prints from the film. Heat transfer tape was laser cut and bonded to digitally printed textiles. Dramatic shapes and silhouettes were achieved by draping on the form. The target customer is women age 18 to 35, who love unique streetwear.

Dark Paradise takes inspiration from the notorious club kids of the 80s, the club scene where these strange nocturnal animals came to life. They are a subculture that emerged out of frustration and a prejudicial society. They were anti-establishment, youthful and believed in unity, having fun, and creating a safe place for people to break free. Dark paradise puts a modern take on this ideology; taking what matters to our generations’ youth such as freedom and justice and tying it all together with the concept of the nightlife and the excess life, such as the violence, the mayhem, the fun and the bond we establish within our outcast bubble. The collection makes a statement with a bold patterns of a manipulated psychedelic tropical print that’s digitally printed, paired with a two toned nylon fabric that reflects the concept of dark paradise. Techniques such as embroidery, crystal embellishment, laser cutting, quilting and bonding are used throughout the collection.

City of Darkness is a men’s street-wear collection. It’s inspired by vintage denim style and the Kowloon Walled City in Hong Kong. Denim is durable and necessary. It represents the tough working class residents and the complex pieced together construction of the Walled City buildings. The collection is contemporary, with asymmetric shapes and layering. The silhouettes are huge and loose fitting. Garments feature dramatic stitch lines, and the combination of both raw edges and well-finished tailored details. The color-way varies from off-white to dark indigo, and is highlighted with primary colors: red, green and blue. Both wrong and right sides of the fabrics were used to represent the patched together disorder of the working class homes and contrasted with the order of the original heritage buildings.

Don’t Look is a circus-inspired unisex collection that portrays a dark and quirky feel, along with Chinese aesthetics. The idea is to create something simultaneously beautiful and terrifying allowing the viewer to question their perspective and further investigate the imagery presented. Terrifying images taken from an original photo-shoot were transformed into digital prints with a kaleidoscope effect. The designer purposely attempting to shock the viewer with perceptual illusion. The collection is named “Don’t Look” to toy with the viewers through reverse psychology. The use of digital prints in varying colors and proportions is a highlight of the collection. Garment details include destroy textures, volume by way of box pleats and ruffles, laminated film bonded onto placement prints. The silhouettes are oversized and asymmetrical, with big sleeves, drop shoulders, and relaxed in fit. The target customer is someone age 25-35, and unisex / gender-less.
