A fashion designer and university professor, Ying Gao has achieved personal distinction through her numerous creative projects.

Gao questions assumptions about clothing by combining urban design, architecture and media design. She explores the construction of the garment, taking her inspiration from the transformations of the social and urban environment. Recognized worldwide, her designs are frequently shown in museums and galleries. The design is the medium, situated in the technology rather than in the textile realm: sensory technologies allow garments to become more playful and interactive.

Ying Gao explores both the status of the individual, whose physical contours are transformed by external interferences, and the garment’s function as a fragile protective space. Her work testifies to the profound mutation of the world in which we live and carries with it a radical critical dimension that transcends technological experimentation.
