Elegant Beach Sun-protection King

Unlike the plain appearance of functional clothing on the market, this design, for instance, a beach dress, uses terry cloth for post-swim absorption. The wrap-around skirt, inspired by traditional Chinese deep clothing, allows for quicker ventilation and drying in hot weather. The sleeves feature an inner lining made of UV-protective cooling fabric, and the outer layer uses discarded silk dyed with turmeric for added flow and aesthetics. This design maintains both practicality and fashion sense while incorporating elements of traditional Chinese clothing. The storage method of the bag draws inspiration from the classical Chinese concept of "Nine Squares Returning to One," using zippers to form a final bag. The first version of this work won the 2023 Sustainable Fashion Award and has been permanently collected by the National Wool Museum of Australia.
