Title of graduation collection: BEHIND THE FASHION SCENE
Researching elements of fashion that people usually don’t care about and therefor know very little about, Chorong Lim stumbled on a particular collection by Maison Martin Margiela that perfectly illustrated her fascination.
One garment, for example, looks exactly like a mannequin wearing pattern paper. This set Chorong Lim off on a series of experimentations of her own, involving mannequins and pattern paper as well as garment bags and other paraphernalia.
“These experimentations set the direction for my graduation project. However, the process of converting 2D images to 3D was never easy. I had collaged the images I produced and began to develop through these images.“ The bottom line of the collection Behind The Fashion Scene is to say there is no meaningless thing.
