The collection Oblivion, which is complex and controversial takes its inspiration from a seductive, witchy Diva and is dealing a lot with symbolism and spirituality. The part of the labyrinth which can be seen in every outfit through the massive strips, embroidery and self-designed print is metaphoric to personal thoughts and feelings- not to get lost. All different aspects are elaborated enchanted and bewildered, equally through the massive volume but also provocative suspender pieces, knitwear, the mirror headpiece, tarot and delicate fabrics such as silk, velvet and pure cashmere.

Inspired by a famous choreographer - Yin Mei’s wise words “I can create an architecture space using my joints, which is already telling a story”, Sense Move Costume is a geometrical kinetic sculpture folding following along with the movement of the body. It communicates sensitively through the body movements of the dancers, and enhances the emotional transmission between the dancer and the audience. The different light effects express the costume’s emotions by the pressure sensor; for instance, a slow fade is breathing, and a flash conveys excitement.
This design tells about the Great Silk Road, a unique social phenomenon when the East became acquainted with the West and both worlds were enriched with knowledge of each other.
