Shan-Liao Huang, Shih Chien University, Taipei, Taiwan
Huang’s unconventional proportion play and daring textile choices won him GFW’s International Prize, beating other students from as far away as Japan and Norway. Space-age meets robot was the theme of his catwalk, in which models were accessorised with metal ankle straps and industrial-style carry cases. Thick, felted fabrics were manipulated into pumped-up blazers, super-sized coats and restrictive columnar trousers, layered over frayed cottons and shredded web-like knitwear.
