I Shan Liou emerges in APAture

Fashion and knitwear designer alumna I Shan Liou represents the school this weekend at APAture Runway III: Third Annual Fashion Show of Emerging Asian American Designers presented by the Kearny Street Workshop and the Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center.


I Shan worked with textile designer Myoung Hee Kim in a collection that was inspired by Sam Francis’ paintings of earth, wind, water, air and fire. The two showed their collection at New York Fashion Week in February and now she brings it on at the APAture Runway show.
