Qianqian Jia

I am from China and I am a brand designer and fashion designer. The keywords to me are minimalism, architecture, and quiet. I am also interested in metal and all elements related to nature. I think that garments should be based on personal temperament and daily life. Walking with the dog in the morning, grabbing coffee with friends, reading a book in quiet afternoons, or doing nothing just lying on the grass in the sun.

“How do you do to make yourself happy? “

“I don't know, maybe spend £6 to buy a bunch of tulips from Tesco.”

People who live in cities are often suffering from too much stress. Me too.

I was inspired by a poem: The Immortal Imagination by William Holdsworth. “To dialogues of business, love, or strife; But it will not be long. Ere this be thrown aside, And with new joy and pride.” In the busy and efficient environment of the city, people and nature always heal each other, leaving, returning, hurting, and accepting.

At the Columbia Flower Market at the weekend, I bought some random flowers for my project. I used calla lilies as the main flower form to develop, creating a series of metal accessories, garments, and bag. The altered shapes are more like embracing the wounded. Being hurt, being healed, then starting again.
