Cher Xue is a fashion designer graduating from Parsons School of Design. Born in Shanghai, China, she moved to the United States when she was in middle school. Cher is often influenced by her cultural background and her childhood experience as an immigrant separated from her family and everyone who she knew. Always feeling homesick and insecure, she tries to express her emotions with her thesis collection. She sees beauty through the combination of different types of materials, especially when they are weaved and intertwined as yarns to become fabrics using knitting or crochet techniques.
