Antiquated magician props, Luna moths and the toxically revered Jimsonweed flowers local to Zhang’s hometown, each draw parallels to the deceptive techniques of magicians.

Water movement is captured through the considered manipulation of resin along with crystal teardrop accessories and concise glass beading.

Meanwhile, asymmetrical tailoring, peplum cinched waists, caped shoulders and winged forms contribute to an otherworldly atmosphere.
