Taste is the Warmest Memory

As a fashion design student from China, studying in the USA, Siyuan Zhao finds eating Chinese food can make her feel homesick. Her collection, ‘Taste is the Warmest Memory’ explores how taste can evoke memory, as well memory’s correlation with happiness and socialising.

Siyaun attempts to capture memories and keep them, by incorporating design elements from ‘Duo Bao Ge’ (traditional Chinese storage cabinet) into her collection using both chiffon and wool.
