    All Things Change - The Inspiration Behind the SS17 Runway

     “All things change,” Buddha proclaimed at the end of his earthly journey. An array of wild animals surrounded him, from sinuous snakes to fearsome tigers. You recall the story of Noah’s Ark, this time as seen through the eyes of artist Wu Junyong’s fantastical retelling “The Flying Ark.” Watch as the creatures float upwards as if in a spiritual declaration. The playful imagery captures your dreamlike desires to rise. 

    Look above. Take in the bright blue skies that are as vast as an ocean. The waves of clouds seem within reach. You long to be like the merciful goddess Guanyin. She stands at the ready to lead the fallen. Glorious as the deity, your awakening begins.

    Spring 2017 is an ecstatic vision of rebirth. Animal prints in electric hues make a sensuous armor. Soaring parachute skirts, voluminous and carefree, are harnessed. The heavens descend and adorn the body. In this life, the tangible and ethereal become one.
