Chinese menswear designer Ruojing Wang is heavily influenced by travel, street culture, and principles of menswear construction. The collection “Anesthetize,” incorporated wool, cotton twill, merino wool roving and jersey knit. Vibrant colors of pumpkin, cobalt, tomato, and periwinkle flooded the runway.


The two collections, “Ukiyoe” for menswear and “Commensalism” for womenswear stood out among the rest, with an avant-garde, incredibly abstract collection. London-based designer Shuai Zeng was inspired by Chinese art. Tailored jackets were created to pop dimensionally and express that the objects live in one body. An explosion of seafoam green, canary yellow, with white and nude, sashayed down the runway.

The Beijing native showcased a collection merging calligraphy and fashion. Yi-Ting Lee’s collection, “Characters complete Characters” reintroduced traditional Chinese elements into post-modern designs. Shades of black and white blended perfectly in wools and organzas. 


The collection L-i-o-n was inspired by traditional Chinese lion dance. We saw various embroidered prints in neon pink, green, and blue almost perfectly timed to dawn the runways just after Chinese New Year.

Chun Han

A great take on winter fashion – designer, Chun Han, presented his sultry collection in gray and black, showcasing fine tailoring of both women’s and men’s wear. From evening looks made of poly and nylon to gray cotton blazers – all looks were accessorized with pearl strings.
