Christine Jiwon Ra is a multidisciplinary creative with a degree in Fashion Design and Fine Art from Parsons School of Design. As a citizen of South Korea, a permanent resident of Hong Kong, raised in England and Japan, and currently residing in New York, she takes an introspective and soulful approach to making cross-cultural references in her artwork. Her designs are rooted in critical thinking and redefining the traditional codes of dress through challenging the infrastructures that are entrenched in waste and inefficiency. Through linking her innovative textile experimentations with her unique cultural perspective, she continues to push the boundary between fashion design and academic discourse.
