Yujin Chen’s graduate collectionwas inspired by the grunge movement and Corrine Day’s photography. The dressing style and persona of grunge musicians like Kurt Cobain and Courtney love inspired Yujin to create a unisex collection exploring identity, music culture and gender fluidity.
During the process of blending the grunge energy into fashion, Yujin developed print and bleach technique on floral fabric and different shade of denim, putting pattern together with irregular ripped seams. Each look of this collection was bleached from top and bottom, creating a clear line in the middle to create a strong visual impact.
This project is quite personal to Yujin Chen as music is part of her identity. She wants to mix the distorted energy and worn-out texture with the fashion world she creates, through the combination of unconventional print, pattern cutting and details.
