Marine Rongrong Wei, B.F.A. Menswear Design, grew up in Shijiazhuang,Hebei, China, and graduated from the Xi’ An Academy of Fine Art. The inspiration for Marine’s graduation collection comes from vintage crafted clothing
during the time of the Great Depression in the United States. She was interested in how people combined fabrics with different textures and weights, as well as the oversized silhouettes of that era. Marine is currently working as an Alteration
Specialist at Uniqlo. The collection will be featured in the Academy of Art University’s spring 2014 show at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week.
For the ninth season, the show will be streamed live at: http://www.academyart.edu/fashionshow/
