Helen Xu

Grade 10

Helen Xu is a Grade 10 student who created a dress inspired by the Rococo period. The dress is clear and aqua blue and made of modern-day PVC material.

Throughout the process, Helen learned that she has a lot of innovative ideas that she simply needs the resources to express. In creating this fashion item, she was able to explore the possibility to create a piece of clothing from non-traditional fabric. Helen’s favourite part of the process was assembling the parts of the dress together because she found this part more challenging than the designing stage. She found enjoyment in being able to practice her new skills.
