Graduation year


After earning her undergraduate degree in Applied Mathematics, Yiwei entered the Post-Baccalaureate Program following an internship as a user interface designer at Microsoft in Beijing. And now she continues her exploration in master program in SAIC. With a strong foundation in mathematics and professional mathematical experience, transitioning to fashion design is not a random leap for her, but a journey to connect these two fields. Yiwei is inspired by the many questions that arise naturally along the way as she finds exciting new paths to pursue. In her eyes, math has its own rhythm that inspires art works just waiting to be discovered. She evolves through each new experience, resistant to pressure as she adapts to different ideas. As Yiwei always says, ‘Never forget why you started, and you can accomplish your mission.’
