Patricia Wu Wu is an interdisciplinary fashion designer and researcher based in Scotland. She is a PhD candidate in the School of Design at the Edinburgh College of Art, and a part-time tutor on undergrad-postgrad courses involving design practices with data and design theory. She was formally trained in mixed media textiles at the Arts University Bournemouth, and later obtained her masters in Fashion & Textiles at the Glasgow School of Art in 2016. Previously, she has worked for independent fashion labels from haute couture to ready-to-wear, such as Iris Van Herpen, Leutton Postle and Derek Lawlor. She has also worked as a print designer for textiles manufacturing companies during her placement at the Zhejiang Fashion & Textiles College (Ningbo, China).
Her practice operates at the nexus of computation, digital fabrication and remote-sensing to create data-driven designs, in the form of 3D printed wearables, data visualisations, generative animation and moving image. Her work has been exhibited during Milan Design Week, Berlin Fashion Film Festival, New Designers in London, Fondazione Mondo Digitale in Rome, Museu del Disseny in Barcelona and Talbot Rice Gallery in Edinburgh.
