This tutu draws on current research into the side effects of radiation, and represents the invasion of nuclear-mutated flowers eating up the natural habitat. The designer aimed to demonstrate how ballet might evolve over time, as the art form assimilates new elements and ideas while retaining its
classical foundation.

Choryin Choi is the designer behind “Cydelic by Choryin”, an artistic luxury brand of clothing and accessories. The Cydelic Brand launched its first capsule collection for Toronto’s LG Fashion Week attendees. With just two years of industry experience, Choi received the Textile Design Award and Fashion Arts Award from the Fashion Arts program at Seneca College. He also nabbed a prestigious design consultant/SEVCONair (artists-in-residence) position with SEVEN CONTINENTS, an internationally-branded retail fixture and merchandising design and production facility.
