BFA Parsons The New School for Design

Graduation year


Xinyi Tao (preferred name Tao) is a fashion designer and 3D artist. Born and raised in Suzhou, China and now based in New York. She explores the dimensions and boundaries of fashion design and achieves this with a unique patternmaking skill. Tao’s "Syn-biomorph" creations challenge conventional notions of fashion by blending opposing visual elements and materials. Donna Haraway's work has been instrumental in shaping her understanding of the "cyborg" as an entity that blurs the lines between human and animal, organism and machine, natural and unnatural. The artist fuses sci-fi aesthetics with Biomorphism and reinterprets organic forms through a unique, futuristic lens.
