Christina Ni is a fashion designer who graduated from Parsons BFA fashion design in 2022. She was born in L.A. grew up in Beijing and moved to L.A after completing elementary school. In 2019, she goes to New York to pursued her fashion studies and is planning to finish her graduate degree in London. This experience of living and seeing different cultures away from her hometown and family pushes her work to focus on her personal experience and emotional journeys. She likes to work with vibrant colors, experiment with different textures and materials, and layers with different shapes and forms.
Being afraid of growing up and facing the adult world, I discovered that the protection from my parents, school, and the world I live in is shielding me in a big bubble, dividing and protecting me from the world outside. By studying my childhood photos and the world I lived in, “Nina” expresses my struggles, uncertainties, and self-doubt. My thesis goes down a path of self discovery and reflection.
