Ruoyu Wang is an RMIT Master of Fashion (Design) student and enjoys experimenting with unconventional materials and techniques to find balance through clashing. Following her Bachelor degree in Fashion Design (Honours) at RMIT, with a graduate collection that was selected for the Melbourne Fashion Week student runway as well as ID Dunedin Emerging Designer Award, Ruoyu aims to translate design concepts through innovative forms, that put an emphasis on textile design. Her Masters collection explores the relationship between material, scale and fit, through the concept of nostalgic childhood memories.

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.
