Significantly influenced by her upbringing in Taiwan, a country of complex culture background, Sabrina has cultivated a keen passion for different cultures. After graduating from the University of Shin Chen, Sabrina then went on to intern for Jason Wu in New York. The dynamic art scene and cultural climate in the American city provided her a wellspring of inspirations and nourishment.
Titled “the Art of Travel,” Sabrina’s first collection was enlightened by her journey to Williamsburg in Brooklyn, where the vigorous street art blends in the Jewish neighborhood. With the aim to reproduce the conflicting, a little mysterious feel of the process while diverse cultures confront and integrate, Sabrina deconstructed and reassembled art paintings to create daring and unique patterns, and accentuated the contrast with Jewish traditional clothing-inspired clean-cut silhouette.
The result is vibrant, delivering an unafraid verve and sophisticated charm. The thoughtful tailoring of Neoprene fabrics turns into garments that perfectly interact with the movement of the body. Intricately sculptured lace details emulating the deteriorated poster leftovers on the street wall, further add a little theatrical touch.
