Dian-Jen Lin is an interdisciplinary designer with the academic rigour of a researcher, the analytical rationality of a scientist and the aesthetic sensitivity of an artist.
With over 6 years of professional experience, she has worked across costume/fashion design, graphic design, filmmaking, photography, contemporary art and silver metalwork. In addition, she has participated in numerous short courses of multifaceted natures to acquire a broad skill set with unconventional intelligence and aptitude for creative communication and innovative thinking.
As a graduate of one of the best fashion sustainability course — MA Fashion Futures from London College of Fashion, she is also the winner of Kering Award for Sustainable Fashion in 2017. She believes in harnessing the power of fashion to facilitate systematic paradigm shifts. After her studies, she continues to pursue the research in developing carbon positive materials with the Natural History Museum and the impact of design on consumer daily commodities with the Francis Crick Institue. “Design should always be drenched in sustainability and dignity” is the philosophy that has been pushing her trajectory towards ameliorating the status quo by proactive engagement and interdisciplinary collaboration.
