Valencia Prizzi

Bachelor of Creative and Interactive Media

Students from the Queensland College of Art recently worked with their Chinese counterparts at the Shanghai Academy of Fine Arts and Shandong University of Art and Design on a collection that melds futuristic fashion with traditional Chinese motifs, creating cutting-edge wearable technology.

The results were exhibited at a fashion show in Jinan, which featured blue-tooth enabled accessories, light-up PVC dresses, and 3D printed, interactive LED garments. For Bachelor of Creative and Interactive Media student Valencia Prizzi, the trip was a life-changing experience.

“This was my first time overseas. It was a total culture shock and a big learning curve. It really tested us and pushed us in new directions. We learned so much from working with the Chinese students.”
