Vincent Wong

Vincent Wong’s graduation project addresses the complex issue of identity in a globalized system, stating: “We are dressed to globalize. Technology has made us vulnerable. The media is disguising our true character.” Vincent decided to take responsibility and help people dress to protect their identities from drowning. His collection “Juvenile Oddity” is just as uneasy to stereotype as anyone who wears it. Working on the basis of classical menswear and with an intricate research into pattern making techniques Vincent developed a way to anticipate unpredictable shapes on the male body. Cutting, draping, shaping, twisting, the familiar is blurred and distorted. “This encouragement for self-expression is my way to preserve not only peoples’ personalities, but also long appreciated tailoring and material. By using left over stock I try to rephrase the trend. People should understand that retaining is not going back nor old fashioned; it is simply a sustainable vision in a globalized future.”
