Turquerie places the Ottoman Empire inspiration into a modern background, for an eclecticism of styles with an ethnic influence. The materials used, such as jacquard, velvet and chiffon, create both chromatic and rigidity contrasts, thus adorning the simple shapes and the clean lines. Made of six silhouettes, the collection gives a range of outfits to choose from. As for the campaign, the project puts together the author's Moldovan roots together with her passion for multiculturalism, for a rich blend of colour, print and texture.
Collection creates a new aesthetic through waste and scrap from the sewing industry. Model design is born from a vivid combination of scraps, colours, proportions and textures.

Models created from pieces symbolize versatility and multiplicity of a person, inspiring users to rethink their values and re-create their self's. For the presentation, author chose a place that sometimes resembles new constructions and sometimes an apocalypse, which makes to rethink future scenarios.
The Growth Curve project carry out innovative experiments on the clothing structure, with fish bone as the support frame and elastic fabric used to wrap the surface, so that the clothing presents a 3D structure like "soft sculpture". At the same time, the clothing structure has the function of expansion and deformation, which can provide a variety of wearing methods for the wearer. The waste fabric produced in the process of clothing production is less, which is conducive to promoting the environmental protection and energy saving of the clothing industry.
In her collection, Flatter Your Body, Yunji Lee presents a revamped version of corsets. Using angles and optical illusion, the designs alter the shape of any figure without the discomfort of original corsets. This collection consists of unbalanced and oversized versions of classic items such as suits, tailored jackets, and dresses with menswear elements. Most compelling is the light-weight wool dress, with straps that can be adjusted around the bust, waist, and hips to flatter the body. It seems that even the word fitted can take on a whole new shape.
This raincoat is a combination of a rain coat, an umbrella and waterproof trousers. Depending on the weather conditions and the amount of rain it can be adjusted to different levels of protection.
