New Beat is a juried competition featuring select works by international design students who demonstrate inspired creativity through material manipulation. Resist dyeing, such as shibori, is a specific form of traditionally patterning cloth via manipulation and dye. Its versatility combined with modern technology has gained popular appeal with contemporary artists, including major fashion icons Issey Miyake, Oscar de la Renta and Prada. Bridging this gap between traditional and contemporary poses an interesting challenge, one that the truly imaginative and creative seize as an opportunity to travel new paths in textile’s future.
