Trotec Laser Challenge was a competition for fashion and jewelry students at George Brown College to experiment and create fashion and jewelry projects using the Trotec Laser machine provided to George Brown College in 2016.

My goal for this competition was to fully express the utility of the laser cutting machine. I continuously developed my design by folding and drawing lines on the fabrics by using the state-of-the-art laser cutting and laser engraving technology. Treating leather like a piece of paper to create an optical illusion by manipulating the surface of the garment, much like the decorations on the ceiling of a Buddhist temple I saw on a trip to Japan in 2015, where the appearance of flatness was created by painting one side of the decorations in white and the rest in black.
