Kelley Liang

Grade 8

Kelley Liang is a Grade 8 student who has created a jean jacket. The structure of the jacket is made from felt, covered by a pattern layer of laser-cut denim. Her jacket features roses along the sleeves.

Kelley joined the Fashion Forward club as she was curious about the process of creating a piece of clothing using technology. She enjoyed going to the Royal Ontario Museum for design inspiration prior to creating their designs. Throughout the process, Kelley learned that certain fabrics are not strong enough to have structure. Her advice to future participants is to be prepared and plan out your work sessions.
