Prompt: I will combine some classic Chinese elements that I have extracted from Leslie to create and transform. I was wondering if time permitting, if I could produce a series of works to express the elements of Chinese fashion photography. Because many traditional Chinese elements are delicate, I will use origami and paper cutting to express these elements. Because it is my inspiration for fashion photography, if time permits, I hope to shoot a group of films with Chinese culture, so that these origami art can be combined with the characters.

Inspired by Chinese fashion photographers, collecting the important elements in their arts, I made this installation. Although China didn’t stepped in fashion photography until recent years, thanks to all the efforts fashion lovers made, Chinese fashion photography and editorial became more and more popular and well-known. Like the candle, all the melted wax contributes to the brightness and height of today and future Chinese fashion status.
