Walter Wu is a Year 2 menswear designer who likes to investigate the function and construction of historical and modern garments.
Deconstruction plays a large part within his design process, he questions garment structures and function and finds new ways to reconstruct. Even the way a garment is folded will inspire his design details.
Walter is currently gaining valuable experience in a fashion company in his home town in China. He has let us know that his own designs are being sampled and how incredibly interesting it has been to take his conceptual designs and commercialise them. Considering the process towards selling his items has been a valuable learning curve.
We are looking forward to Walter returning for his final year, to seeing him further his pattern cutting skills and fulfilling his creative ideas into garments that can be worn by the people he loves.
