Zhou Plays with Expectations Through Fashion

April 29th, 2019

 

Who are you? Where are you from?

Clothing can create a first impression that starts to answer these questions. For her senior thesis toward a certificate in visual arts, Jessica Zhou designed and produced a fashion show that puts a witty twist on those questions as they relate to her many identities — as a woman, as a Texan, as Chinese American, as a busy Princeton student.

“The focus of Jessica’s thesis is how we, and she in particular, change and adapt to cultural codes. … She has examined that through how we as a culture do that through our clothing, through fashion, through our dress. She’s a psychology major. That is intrinsically woven into her work,” said Jeff Whetstone, professor of visual arts in the Lewis Center for the Arts and Zhou’s adviser.
