Melody Zhang


Class of: 2027

Major: Fashion Design BFA

Medium: Digital (multi-media)

Prompt: Design Your Pattern: Creating your own textiles using digital textile printing. By exploring various styles and techniques, students will draw inspiration from nature landscapes to develop visually compelling patterns. The project will have three phases, allowing students to apply their designs to a tangible object.

“The World is Your Oyster” is a phrase that represents how there are unlimited possibilities in this world for you to explore and make the most out of; akin to opening an oyster and discovering the pearl that lies within. This is particularly evident in New York City, where the craziness of our existence truly unfolds. My digital textile patterns (subsequently made into a garment) intend to be a physical manifestation that anything can happen in your lifetime.
