Wei-Chi Su is a critical fashion practitioner from Taiwan, based in Arnhem. Her works connect theories and practices which are driven by personal care about equality of all kinds. She explores how to redesign Western-dominated fashion educational practices and its effects on colonial aesthetics. She believes that recognising the differences will give us an option to confront the classification and ranking of people and regions which are the cornerstone of colonialism.
