7x7: CCA's Emerging Talent Award in Fashion Design Goes to Tiśina Parker

For CCA grad Tiśina Parker, fashion design is more than stylish, trend-setting apparel, and her collection—4th Dimension—for CCA's graduation fashion show illustrated just that. She delved deep into mathematics, all the way to the 4th dimension, an abstract concept that she says "is derived by generalizing the rules of three-dimensional space by applying complex rules of vectors and coordinate geometry." The heady concept she used for this work can be found both in nature and architecture, and she complemented her designs with origami and textile folding, which also build upon this same idea (but are much easier for us laymen to understand!).
