Cao always has a passion for using story and movies as imaginative tools to cross the boundaries of reality and float into a fantasy world. She likes to find unrelated or impossible things to make possible and balance in her way, fake and surreal, romantic and gothic, beautiful and horror, something twisted inside but interesting. She hopes that when people see her designs, they will feel beauty and happiness, but also apprehension, which Cao describes as “ the feeling when you are jumping into Wonderland”.
