Vanessa Sun was an intern for Minika Ko, LLC (August 2018-March 2019) and worked on a variety of tasks such as video editing, content creation, design, communications, and retail. She also wrote press releases and supported the lead designer for 2 New York Fashion Week shows and 4 total fashion shows.
For International Women’s Day 2019, she participated in the KOllision fashion show. She was one of the 45 artists who used Minika Ko’s KOVASKY collection as a canvas to create a piece of wearable art. The dress she created, in collaboration with Lawrence Castillo, was a commentary on how women are often judged for the clothes they wear in the workplace when their thoughts and ideas should be valued the most. You can find the documentation for the Arduino code on Github. She also interviewed and filmed numerous artist interviews to promote the event on social media.
