ICAD (International Conference on Art & Design) is an annual exhibition of international design exchanges organized by the Korean Society of Science and Art. ICAD 2020 is co-organized by the Korean Society of Science and Art, Handong University and Van Lang University, attracting artists, designers and students from 13 countries and territories to work together to exchange academic knowledge in the field of art and design.
It’s the first time that students of Fashion Design – Faculty of Industrial Fine Arts of Van Lang University confidently participated in the exhibition with products and works with friends in area. It can be seen that the students of Van Lang Fashion Design department are interested in many social issues with diverse design fields and perspectives as well abundant expression skills; In particular, each work has its own personality, conveying clear personal messages.
Students of Fashion Design Department of Van Lang University have participated in ICAD 2020 with their best works which clearly show their personal view of creativity, ability to find ideas and develop products, and expression techniques, whether they are applied or artistic designs. This result comes from the long learning and training process in an environment where students are given the spiritual and physical condition to freely unleash their potential, to look for personal ego which is totally different and mature every day.
It is noticeable that the fashion products have shown the diversity in creative topics, from natural topics such as flowers, animals to topics of war, memory, culture, painting, even subjects that seem unfamiliar for fashion like zoombie or human meat have been successfully adapted by students into fashion works, showing their ability to sense and effectively convey its specialized language.

It is clearly that every aspect of life is perceived by students and transformed into fashion language in very own ways. The strong creative personality and the ability to apply the techniques in diverse and skillful products are two factors that make the costume outstanding in quality at ICAD 2020. That’s the way our Fashion Design students introduce their creative ego to the public.
