Shanshan Bai, M.F.A. Fashion Design, is originally from the Hami, Xinjiang Province in China. During her time as a student, Shanshan was the winner of both the 2013 Four Seasons Hotel Uniform Design Competition in San Francisco, as
well as the 2013 Sea Fashion Challenge. Shanshan was inspired by the natural curling lines of floral panels, and the continuous twisting of sculptured surfaces.
She constructed her garments using a blend of silk gazar and wool, as well as linen yarn. She collaborated with Winbo Shiau, M.F.A. Fashion Design and Knitwear Design, on their Spring 2014 collection. The collection will be featured in the Academy of Art University’s spring 2014 show at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week.
