With a primary focus in fiber art and fashion design, Bo Choi envisions clothes as both rendering explicit their capacity to represent the self, as well as building upon, and breaking with, past conventions in order to allow an endless refashioning of the self disallowed by the limited vocabulary of much art and fashion today. She completed her MFA 2009 in Fiber at School of art in University of Washington, Seattle, WA.  Her undergraduate studies were at University of California, Davis, in Fashion Design and Studio Art. Previously, as a fashion designer, she created a fashion line that explores and transgresses the typical ways the body contour interacts with clothing. Choi’s solo fashion show “Second Skin” was presented at Jacob Lawrence Gallery in University of Washington, Seattle in collaboration with Catherine Cabeen.  In 2009, she was a finalist at the InspirAsain Fashion Competition, hosted by International Examiner where her wearable art line was presented at the Bell Harbor Conference Center. Internationally she has presented her designs at the Wearable Art Awards in Port Moody, BC, Canada, 2009 and 2010 and had a residency at Kulturprojekte, Berlin Germany in 2008.  Currently, she teaches fashion design at IADT Seattle.
