Yvonne Tian is a Grade 9 student who designed a dress inspired by the theme of “sweet sixteen.” The dress is a light shade of pink to symbolize compassion and love, and is made of poly silk. The design features lights built into it.
Yvonne joined the Fashion Forward club because of her passion for art. Seeing the previous year’s Fashion Forward creations, she was curious about the journey of creating a unique project. She learned that every step in creating a fashion item has to be precise and thoughtful. Her advice to future participants is to never give up on something, any mistake can be fixed if you are willing to put in creativity and effort.
