Ma Ke . Chinese fashion masterpieces
Ma Ke . Chinese fashion masterpieces
Sometimes it happens to be strucked, mesmerized, crushed or simply amazed by something you never could conceive in your imagination but someone else did through superb craftsmanship.
I’m talking about the work or better, pieces of art of the artist and Chinese fashion designer Ma Ke, who stands in opposition to China’s mass-market production and consumerism presenting in his work local cultural value, sustainable materials like natural cotton, linen and silk fibers. Ma Ke says: “ Believing that genuine fashion should not follow trends, but should uncover the extraordinary in the ordinary. In a world of conflict and never ending wars, of polarization between rich and poor, we face a deepening environmental crisis caused by the short sightedness of human activity. Our resources are running out, while our desires are proliferating. Cultural variety and regional diversity are being assimilated through economic globalization. Traditional craftsmanship is disappearing from our daily life. Through these tremendous social changes, my country is undergoing a heart breaking loss of tradition for the sake of an irresponsible pursuit of the future. Designers must be responsible for damage done to the eco system through their production, and must not work for purely commercial interest”
