Taking an abstract concept into design, Yu Ching’s work explores the different facets of love through colour and textile. Colour is used to map the differences in temperature felt by the nuances of love – red for heat and passion, white for simplicity and serenity, black for sadness and torture - whilst textiles are used to represent the physical environment of love. Using a variation of knitting and weaving techniques, Yu Ching’s garments reveal layer upon layer of hidden detail. Each detail links to a specific aspect of love. Fluffy lightweight and bright coloured yarn is used to express the romantic side of love whilst dark, twisted and uneven textiles are used to express the dark side of love. Weaving these two parts together in a chaotically seamless way, Yu Ching’s collection literally enables you to wear your heart on your sleeve.
