BFA Fashion Designer Chin “Winnie” Wong was born in Hong Kong, China and grew up in San Jose, CA. Winnie found inspiration in a simple inventive geometric wooden box made by artist Kay Sekimachi. She began her design process by draping paper on the dress form creating structural shapes and well-refined contours, which she kept when moving onto fabric. She also backed her fabrics with organza to keep them crisp. Winnie is a Sister City Scholarship Exchange Program winner and will spend next year studying abroad in Paris at Studio Berçot.
