From the press release:
Nika Tang, M.F.A. Fashion Design, was born in Guangzhou, China, and grew up just east of San Francisco in Berkeley, California. Nika’s Spring 2014 Collection focuses on volume, movement and texture. The initial shape of the
garments takes on the half dome and ruffled silhouette of a sunfish, and the fabric reflects the textures of caviar eggs. Additionally inspired by the stone carvings of realism artist Kris Kuksi, the designs of Swiss architect Mario Botta, and the sculpture of South Korean artist Byoungho Kim, Nika’s collection combines traditional macramé and tailoring techniques, with modern textile printing and fabrication.
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/
