Substruct is a collection focusing on the critical elements at the foundation of every structure. The collection began as an exploration of the cities Shanghai and New York, the city I grew up in and the city in which I currently live. Photography has been my passion long before I started studying fashion, so I attempted to capture the structural significance of two of the most modern cities in the world through my own photography.
During this process I placed an emphasis on the documentation of important architectural frames and foundations while exploring scale and verticality though experimentation. I collaged, layered, and reconstructed to arrive at a unique aesthetic. The final outcome presents a personal perspective of these urban environments and the underlying principles that are present in all structures, whether they are buildings or garments.
