Withering Flower

Angela Chiang is a recent print design  graduate from Central Saint Martins with an eye for withering flowers and Oriental myths. The concept behind her graduate collection focuses on the withering flower. The idea came to her whilst replanting a country garden with her grandparents on a trip home to Taiwan. In fengshui and Chinese cultural myths, a withered flower is a symbol of jinx and which is perceived as a sign of bad luck. It also foreshadows a woman’s misfortune in classical Chinese literature. Angela sought to explore these mythological symbols in her print designs.
