This film is part of the program Mode vs. Folklore, entre traditions et transgressions : Carte blanche à Andreina Aveledo.

It Is Not Spring, Until All Flowers Blossom is the début collection from design label YA YI. The collection is a response to the designer’s personal experience working alongside the Chinese immigrants that make up the garment factories in New York, whose names are scarcely mentioned by the industry nor celebrated designers. The title comes from Shui Mak Ka, a factory worker who initialized the 1982 Garment Strike in New York Chinatown, attended by over 20,000 garment workers — almost entirely women. They donned union hats and raised picket signs to press for the renewal of their union contracts. United, immigrant Chinese American women called for workers’ rights that would forever impact U.S. labor history.

Curry Sicong Tian is a US-China based multidisciplinary visual artist, whose talent ranges across Director, concept/​digital artist, 3D mographer, and fashion photographer, not in a segregated way but artfully blending the vastly different mediums into a seamless harmony of leading edge expression. In 2020, Curry won a Student Academy Award for her short film Simulacra, and in such a short span of time created masterful works for clients such as Mercedes-Benz, Apple BEATS, Canon and more. Born and raised in China, Curry’s mission is to bridge the gap between eastern and western cultures through video art and film, all led by the art of story.
