Father collection was my thesis. It is based on my father, Paul Shin-Cheng Yu from photographs, both as he grew up in Taiwan and when he moved here to America.

For a collection that is meant to be so permanent, I couldn't find anything as permanent as character. And nothing as permanent in character as place. Because it should be about myself, I looked at my father. In some way I must be like him. Both in his clothes and in his lifestyle. It is likely that everything I make will feel this way.
