“ Chaos of Mountains and Seas ”
On October 13, 2017, MUKZIN depicted a “mind map” cross time, space and cognition on the subject of “chaos of mountains and seas” at the Fashion Week A Venue in Xintiandi, Shanghai. MUKZIN built up an expedition that pierced mists of history and shuttled between two parallel universes: the world of Classic of Mountains and Seas and the Jurassic to explore sources of the ancient Chinese’s imagination from a childhood’s perspectives and to regain awe and worship of nature. “Chaos” means abundance and diversity in archaic Chinese and hence reflects the bizarre and motley fantasy about the nature that the ancient Chinese nourished in the Classic of Mountains and Seas. “Chaos” also refers to the confusion of multidimensional space and the overlap of time. MUKZIN presented unique stage settings, performances and model makeups for this show. Renowned artists were also invited to create posters, videos, music and derivative products for the collection. Over 700 guests from the fashion industry embarked on the wonderful adventure with MUKZIN’s “chaos of mountains and seas” expedition.
