Design show artist and local graduate, Sophie Ho presents an after-hours opening to discuss her own fashion collection.
In Chinese Arts Centre’s second graduate design show this year, the gallery will be filled with a host of UK-based Chinese designers’ work, this time all searching for one thing in common – the perfect form. Inspired by the principle of geometry, and the connections between science and nature, their work showcases future-facing designs for fashion, graphics, interior design and jewellery in a stylish, space-aged installation. Tonight, Manchester School of Art graduate, Sophie Ho and St. Martin’s jewellery design graduate, Dian Luo, talk about their work. It’s also the last chance to see the first UK solo exhibition by Taiwanese artist Wu Chi-Tsung, which features a new commission, “Crystal City 004.” Part of Fashion’s Night Out. Chinese Arts Centre, Market Buildings, 13 Thomas St, M4 1EU, 6pm-9pm Thursday 11 October, free.
