Ada/Yi Xuan Gao

Fashion Design & Marketing Student with Creative Direction expertise

Work Location

London, UK

As a BA Fashion Design and Marketing student at Istituto Marangoni London, I combine my performance art background from Shanghai Theatre Academy with my passion for up-cycled fashion and Chinese horror aesthetic. My goal is to create innovative and sustainable designs or provide marketing strategy that challenge the conventional norms of the industry.

I have gained valuable experience and skills in PS, AI, ID, CLO3D, and creative marketing strategy. I have demonstrated my ability to hand-sew complex garments, fix 3D-print pieces, coordinate with stylists and dressers, assist with casting, fitting, styling, and dressing models, and communicate effectively with diverse teams in a high-pressure working environment. I am eager to learn from and contribute to the fashion industry with my unique perspective and aesthetic.
