For her MA Fashion graduate collection at Kingston University, BoYang chose to depict the relationship between moving bodies and clothing. She turned to contemporary dance for inspiration and looked at alternative patternmaking theories to best create garments for a body in motion. The two inspirations for her collection came from famous choreographer and dancer Silvia Gribaudi and the patternmaking specialist Rickard Lindqvist – both of their work centered around movement with the body. Through this research, BoYang was able to inspect the different elements of dance to identify the correlation between expression and movement. She then transformed these movements into her garment patterns.
