Welcome Mimi Rose Cummins…

‘Chinese Whispers’ - Mimi's graduate collection - looks at the distortion and exaggeration of messages within culture. The fundamental research for her collection is based on the exploration of her western and Chinese identity.

"By having a more dominant western identity, my Chinese identity has become fragmented and my understanding of my chinesness is distorted. My collection presents a juxtaposition between Imperial, communist and appropriated China, whilst designing with a western perspective."

"These strongly different eras and perceptions of China reveals my lost in translation between east, west, past and present; with the emphasis on messages and culture being distorted by my own doing."

Mimi's inspiring collection shows impeccable craft work and intelligence, conveyed through her high levels of detail, bursts of colour and bold structural forms.
