Mastering the art of fusing technology and fashion
together, Diana Eng created a collection breaking
the conventional ideas of design. Using her "fashion
nerd" abilities through her knowledge of mathematics,
science, and design, Eng was able to create magical
clothing that changed shape, inflated, and lit up!
The Fairytale Fashion Show was an experience that
was truly out of this world. Though pieces like
her inflatable gown, or her balloon dress are more
conceptual than commercial, they put on an excellent
show while challenging the way we look at clothing
and engineering. Her designs show a stylish relationship
between the two. It's always exciting to see what
Diana Eng will come up with next, hopefully men’s
pieces! Why did she have to be eliminated too soon
on Project Runway season 2? Keeping in the spirit
of Project Runway, designer Malan Breton attended
the show, giving Diana a helping hand!
