Cooking Up a Collection - A Fashion Omakase
Jiayi Shao is a fashion designer graduating from Parsons School of Design. Born and raised in Shanghai, China, she’s deeply impacted by its culture and sees design as her way to express her aesthetics, culture, experience, and value.
She seeks inspiration from daily life and tends to magnify the beauty of the little but important things that people might neglect.
She believes what the world lacks is not the quantity of designs, but those ideas that are more meaningful to the earth and the people. Therefore, Jiayi always looks for possibilities to combine different systems and make designs that are practical, sustainable, and thought-provoking. She hopes that her audience could get the stories behind the art by looking into the process and details, which matters the most to her.
