oqLiq Virtual Catwalk for NYFW
A virtual city constructed by a möbiusband provides the key stage design inspiration where daily life and street scenes of Taiwan are merged, for presentation during the New York fashion week.
It’s a cyberpunk futuristic city where home is still home, yet people have been transformed into Mahjong cyborgs.
The concept of oqLiq 21Fall/Winter extends from the Spring/Summer theme of “Natural Blessing” from oqLiq custom to present a complete, holistic concept through two seasons.
Needle punch made by customized PET recycled materials and technical textiles 3XDRY® CORDURA ® are utilized to represent the balance of Taiwan culture and urban functionality.
The functional features are inspired by 4 main characters: Sword, Instrument, Umbrella and Dragon of Chinese classic novels, and the Creation of the Gods. The Fall/Winter collection features the combination of traditional oriental silhouettes and technical functional textiles. The Chinese language characters are transformed into garment dimensional structures with sophisticated vintage military style functionality.
