Inspiration is from Chinese Relics, “Ceramics” is the most representation which is most popular no matter from the royal and people. In my study, even today the core Chinese Aesthetic standards of fashion and Feng Shui (interior and environment design) are unchanged. They like see-through, layering and wishing. I would like to design a Qipao to bring the implication and feature of ceramics from the old dynasty to contemporary fashion. And provokes people who are forgotten their culture and ethnicity whenever we are in i-generation.

Interview with So Yau Kai on The Remains Contemporary QiPao

What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
I think the icon of royal or dragon cannot really cover the Chinese culture. In my opinion, the Chinese Culture should be more close real living style of the common and express in Chinese public.
What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
I would like to use the typical Chinese flower's meaning of wishing to express on the updated Chinese layering technique.
Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?
I think human is getting on the track on I-generation (as 3D/4D dimension at fashion approach)
Is your design being produced or used by another company, or do you plan to sell or lease the production rights or do you intent to produce your work yourself?
I have no intention to put this design on production, instead, I will feel great is somebody will appreciate it.
Is your design influenced by data or analytical research in any way? What kind of research did you conduct for making this design?
Actually I haven't influences or conduct any research on my design. Instead, it was inspirited from the core of Chinese culture.
