Her BA collection, titled “She Lives in a Wonderland”, was inspired by a trip on the road from Marrakesh to the Sahara Desert. She was touched by the striking scenery of nature and was immediately reminded of the landscape depicted under the lens of Wim Wenders, in the film Desert Flower. The female protagonist, Waris Dirie, is portrayed as a powerful woman who struggles and strives against all odds—a persona of womanhood that Shuting wanted to capture in her collections. Reflecting upon her experience of traveling and Desert Flower, Shuting illustrates a confident and strong woman with a gentle and romantic side.
