Melis Vural

2nd Year Junior Design & Construction

I am an international student from Istanbul Turkey, focusing on fashion design & construction in SAIC.

For the past few years, I have been at a very low point in my life and I have been struggling with my mental and physical health. So that
I started investigating the relationship between the world and me. As humans, we need to be in a healthy mindset and in balance with the world around us to function properly. As an artist and a designer, I am currently merging my healing and growing process with my artistic journey. I am trying to shift the rough experiences in my life to creative opportunities for my designs.

With my project “Feeling Blue”, I am exploring emotions and showing 3 different stages of emotional recognition. I am working with different transparencies and densities of knits in order to represent different densities of our layered emotions.
