uring my semester abroad in Shanghai, I was constantly interested in how the fashion industry was different to Western countries. I started with conducting some research online and then talking to a couple professors, who gave me some great inspirations and ideas on where to look and who to contact. I immediately came across the china fashion collective website created by Timothy Parent. He helps young fashion designers with creating international marketing tools, primarily with communication in a foreign language. I met Timothy Parent at a private members club with a beautiful garden for a casual coffee, which then turned into an interview and casual photoshoot.

fter the meeting with Timothy Parent I consulted with my professor on how to transform my research into a final project. We collaboratively decided to transform the previous work into a lifestyle magazine article. In this article I combined my InDesign, typography, photography, layout design, visual hierarchy and communication skills.
