Tivona Ka Yu Yeung, Class of 2020 said:

‘We chose school uniforms because they connect the diverse East Asian culture with an element most of us are quite familiar with. Wearing a set of school uniform again after leaving our previous schools also reminded us a lot of our upbringing and lives before UWC Atlantic, which is especially nice when we are so close to presenting a conference about everything East Asia, the region we call home.
While there are many different types of school uniforms in East Asia, a lot of them actually look quite similar to each other: for example, a set of T-shirt, long pants and a jacket is especially common in Mainland China. Other uniforms also reflect the rich inter-cultural history of East Asian regions: for example, the tartan skirt of one of the school uniforms from Hong Kong is reminiscent of a Scottish clan’s tartan patterns. We also hoped to introduce some of the schooling dynamics within each region in East Asia through the fashion show, in order to foster understanding about the culture of our education systems – which can be quite different even within the same region.’
