The Qixi Festival is approaching, and the big names have started festival limited push. I have to say that the red main items are full of strong rituals.
Of course, our romance is not only a limited series of Chinese Valentine’s Day. Under the blessing of Chinese emerging designers, some local designs are even more atmospheric than big names.
According to the “2021 Guo Chao Search Big Data Report” jointly released by Baidu and the People’s Daily Research Institute, Guo Chao’s attention in the past ten years has increased by 528%. Behind the national tide, there are more and more Chinese designers today, and they move with creativity. After all, the romance in our bones knows better.
So today I will talk about Rui Zhou, Shuting Qiu, Yuhan Wang, Susan Fang, Shie Lyu, the five young Chinese independent designers, sexy and romantic for women.
Speaking of the explosive king in 2021, it is certainly indispensable for Dua Lipa, DOUTZEN KROES, Hyuna, He Sui, Zhong Chuxi, etc. These tights connected to a piece of knitted fabrics with small roundads are from the hand of RUI ZHOU (Zhou Rui).
This Chinese designer was black horse. He first maintained textile design at Tsinghua University, and then studied clothing design at Parsons, a famous fashion school. After graduating, he worked at Alexander Wang and founded RUI in 2019. This resume is dazzling enough, and it has become the only Chinese designer to “LVMH Prize 2021 young designer Grand Prix”, which is a label to prove her strength.
In a media interview, RUI ZHOU had said that she was not too enthusiastic about fashion and trend, but the road of art learning made her closely close to fashion. In each design series, she uses the advantages of studying textiles to complete the work with different knitted fabrics and unconventional connections.
“A dress is like a device. When I make a three -dimensional cutting or sketch, I always regard my body shape as a framework.”
As she said, she started to explore the space between skin and fabrics with her more familiar female bodies. In the design series launched every season, the clothes that are not covered on the body are like the second layer of skin shows the healthy and confident body of women.
The designer Shuting Qiu (Qiu Shuting) loves the very popular route of “playing tricks”. If you see a lot of colors and asymmetric design on the clothing, it is her clothes.
She graduated from the Royal Academy of Art of Antwerp with her professional first grades and was recorded in the graduate student of the school. She was a master van Beirendonck, one of the six gentlemen of Antwerp. By the way, her mentor was a master who played printed and color.
Antwerp is not a traditional fashion capital. Without restraint, her design is fearless. During the college, she and headwear artist Leo Carlton designed the head art device inspired by Kathakali Dancer’s traditional headdress. This series of design also participated in VFILES Show and was selected by Vogue China.
The aura is not only there, Shuting Qiu has also been shortlisted for the H & M Design Award, LVMH Prize 2021 Youth Designer Grand Prix, and the youngest shortlisted by Bof China Prize.
In 2017, while she continued her studies, she set up a Shuting QIU. The autumn and winter 2019 series is her graduate design. Shuting Qiu uses the method of “more is more” to make addition on the fabric, complicated patterns, and different materials to create a strong visual impact.
In the same year, Shuting Qiu was invited to board Milan Fashion Week, and was rated as one of the “6 new designers who must know this season” by the New York Times.
Her work is like a “treasure map”, full of bold colors and rich printing patterns. The details are also full of exquisite embroidery. Study each place in detail to discover different surprises. The exaggerated artistic techniques make the clothing connect with the body, which also directly expresses the romance and confidence of women.
“My ideal girl, they are not necessarily very beautiful, but they must be different from everyone and have independent personality.”
The creative inspiration of the 2021 Autumn and Winter series is from Swiss artist Miriam Cahn and installation artist Viola Lanari. The image of the feeling.
Designer Yuhan Wang is good at combining classical and abstract elements.
After graduating from San Martin, she had no intention of self -reliance, and first joined Marni as a designer. But after participating in four Fashion East shows in succession, she gradually had the consciousness of creating her own brand. Then she decided to resign and return to London to focus on developing Yuhan Wang.
Yuhan Wang likes to study the 18th -century women’s wearing. She thinks that dresses itself is a manifestation of women’s power, so when doing a series of works, she will highlight the characteristics of women itself.
She tried to dig out the deeper attraction of historical clothing, combined with the skills of landscape painting from an early age, and the abstract feeling of ink and ink to express the design in a subtle way.
Therefore, you can see that there are Victorian clothing to the body package in Yuhan Wang, and the designer uses different transparent fabrics such as mesh, coloring, and organic cotton to create a sense of hierarchy with three -dimensional cutting.
Yuhan Wang’s work has always been exploring the “private part”, and she hopes that her design will become a metaphorical curtain. Just like her graduation design, the creation inspired by the hotel opposite the apartment, the row of windows with curtains. The clothing decides how to express the body and how much skin shows people.
“In Asia, we don’t show so many skin. For me, women’s clothing and powerful are not just sexy. Sometimes you don’t need to show the skin, just show the shape of the body.” Yuhan said.
The ultimate romantic aesthetics performed by her 2021 spring and summer series is also the best interpretation of women’s characteristics and strength.
Susan Fang, who graduated from San Martin, founded Susan Fang in 2017 and successfully shortlisted the LVMH Prize Young Designer Award two years later.
“Air Weaving” is exclusive to her personal design label. In the initial version of “Air Weaving”, she uses soft lines and tough wire brackets to create clothing with three -dimensional and liquidity.
However, it seems that the fairy woven has the shortcomings of complex workmanship and time -consuming. In order to solve this problem, Susan Fang also developed special production tools, which not only allows 7 people to weave at the same time, and layout of multi -layered materials at the same time, but also gives air weaving more effects.
Through continuous attempts and upgrading, in the spring and summer 2019 series, she no longer uses iron wire to support the outline of clothing. Instead, she uses lighter gauze fabrics to combine more complex weaving to intuitively present a sense of space.
The 2021 Autumn and Winter series “Air • Time”, she and the artist’s Great Benemmed Universe jointly reshaped the space -time vocabulary to explore our perception of time. Bubble sleeves, weaving long skirts, beads, dreams of different art forms, weave a smart picture here.
The “air weaving” created by Susan Fang shows the vitality she pursued. The net -shaped clothing full of fantasy also gives the way of dressing another possibility.
Designer Shie Lyu is different from several designers introduced today. She likes non -traditional clothing materials. Every season of Shie Lyu has recycled materials for reconstruction, such as cotton pads, puff puffs, and organic glass. These daily necessities that have nothing to do with clothing can become her creative source.
She has lived in New York, London, Tokyo, Sydney for many years. After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in financial degrees, she went to Parsons, New York to formally contact the fashion industry. However, before entering Parsons, Shie Lyu began to explore fashion — using his spare time to study fashion courses.
In design, she is good at using embroidery, weaving and other techniques to turn waste materials into fashion elements. For example, the 2021 spring and summer series in China was produced in the period when she was the worst epidemic. Because she couldn’t buy the materials, she recovered the remaining inventory around her. The process of hand -made to help her slowly get rid of anxiety, which has the theme of “Glamour Buffer”.
Different sizes of transparent sequins are arranged combined with the deconstruction design of fluorescent colors and black systems to create a level like a high -quality texture. And these well -made clothing also evoke people’s reflection on excessive consumption.
In addition to experimental creation, Shie Lyu’s clothes are also wearing both. She has a bright personality that she hopes that her works can bring a strong and vanguable style to women. Therefore The shape is also not restricted to the established framework, and the details are bold. In the fabric, she chooses to use men’s fabrics, and is freely deconstructed through the connection of the metal structure, so that the wearer can DIY diverse matching details.
In the traditional impression of the public, Chinese design often rely on traditional elements to emphasize its design attributes. But these emerging designers have interpreted the local design from different perspectives -the original clothing does not have traditional elements, and can also interpret Chinese romance.
On the other hand, people’s pursuit of fashion has become a new lifestyle. The new generation of consumers have higher quality requirements, the story behind the clothing, and the unique tone of clothing, which is even more attractive.
Consumers are no longer attached to the trend. It is a rare opportunity for independent designers, but it is not easy to stand out.
Not only must they have creativity, but they also have a keen business mind at the same time. The designers behind the Chinese fashion circle like Shushu/TONG Jiang Yutong and Lei Liushu, with only 100,000 yuan for starting gold and continued profitable designers. There are too few designers.
How to balance creativity and business is a challenge for old designers. However, it is certain that in the continuous development, young Chinese designers with deep cultural heritage will continue to romance.
