Graduating from RMIT’s Bachelor of Design (Fashion)(Honours) in 2018, Qing Wei’s Masters of Fashion Design project builds on dyeing and printing techniques of previous work to explore how perceived ‘boring’ garments can be reimagined as interactive, playful wearables. This is formed in a collection that engages with the wearer by embedding elements of colour and play that references children’s toys and interactive games. Qin’s garments explore the relationship between the garment and the human body, by showing the dynamic beauty of clothing through movement.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
