During childhood, Bing witnessed her dad, a dextrous wood sculptor, building traditional Chinese fictional characters and telling their stories through carving and painting wood while embracing their Chinese roots. Inspired by him, Bing grew up to be a storyteller of her own. Every evening, she would sit by her younger sisters, enriching their dreams with original bedtime stories. Bing later created multiple illustrations through which she explored her identity by telling stories. An emerging fashion designer, Bing would start her collections from a storytelling perspective, using unique colouring schemes and sculpturing of fabrics, to reach her audience visually and emotionally.

During childhood, Bing witnessed her dad, a dextrous wood sculptor building traditional Chinese fictional characters. Inspired by her father, a sculptor in his local community, Bing was interested in the idea of interaction and interchangeability between 2D and 3D formats. As a fashion designer, Bing sees her designs in the format of 3D sculpture, as wearing of the 2D cloth­ing pieces serves as the most natural 2D-to-3D transformation process.

Bing’s mom, a typical Chinese lady, dedicated herself to her family and her husband’s career. In Bing’s memory, Mom would always smile and calm her down whenever she’s upset or impatient. But behind the softness there has always been power - Mom was the one who held the whole family together, through ups and downs. When building this collection, Bing was honouring her soft, yet powerful mom, her power of softness.
