“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” 
― Friedrich Nietzsche

Enclosed, fashion design student Hao Du explains his master semester project.
What happens when the clothes are worn and the wearer moves? The body does not one-sidely control and move the clothes; the clothes and body are equal – the two move independently yet influenced each other while accommodating the subtle spaces between them. When the body and the clothes – both equal in the natural environment – perform their individual movements, they move while mutually embracing or diffusing the gaps that form between them.
By ephemeral beauty, I prefer to the atmosphere generated between the body and clothes, which is expressed using the word ‘space’. In this sense, wearer participation is not about saving space; rather, it is a technique that implies the supposed existence of an atmosphere space body and clothes. What makes the simplicity of a piece of clothes with enough space beautiful is not that no interference is possible; but that it alludes to the abundance of space that can be accommodated by the clothes.
The inspiration of my collection “keep dancing, remain thinking” comes from a piece of contemporary dancing of Pina Bausch called Café Müller. Dancers are cuddling and separating, it is an abstract description about the relationship of garments and body.
I believe the beauty of an object does not lie in its eye-pleasing appearance, but rather in the significance it embodies.
