Ying Gao is a Chinese fashion designer who creates outstanding pieces combining urban design, architecture and multimedia. She takes inspiration from the transformations of social and urban environment. For Ying, garments are fragile protective space between body and external interferences. To express the mutations of the body and the world, she often uses sensory technologies that allow garments to become more impactive and interactive.
For example she designed an interactive dress made with super organza and electronic devices. That dress moves like a jellyfish in the water.
The dress you see in the picture above is her last “creature”: an interactive dress made with super organza, photoluminescent thread, PVDF and electronic devices, activated by spectator’s gaze.
