memories with you
2019 Sustainable Womenswear collection
Moving to the next step does not mean I forget it;
I just found my way to remember you and everything forever
I would love to collect all of the memories from my life and share these most beautiful and precious moments with you; Life is just like the screen in the kaleidoscope, what we could only do is cherish this moment and try to keep it longer and longer.
Behind the collection
“Rhyme; memories with you” is the 4th collection from WEI-YU, he is inspired by the movie “flowers of the war“ and combines his feeling, life experience, and his culture into design. Wei-Yu applies the design techniques of up-cycling and reconstruction to a wide range of textile waste, including secondhand kimonos, fashion, and bridalwear samples and damaged lace, to create a collection which presents a modern take on the traditional Chinese Qipao. He also experiments with plant dyes and handmade bark lace, a traditional Austronesian fabric that he makes from wood scraps sourced from the furniture industry.
