Chinese designer shines at New York Fashion Week

Added On September 10, 2018

 Chinese fashion designer Vivienne Hu presented her Spring/Summer 2019 collection at the ongoing New York Fashion Week.

Her latest collection plays with the idea of good versus evil.
The collection is more vibrant and youthful than before, featuring fabrication such as ruffles, lace, velvet, floral prints, silks and sequins, and emphasizes bright colors to create a playful mood.
Hu's latest work was inspired from flowers and fruits.
She said the good and evil as concepts are not always black and white, and can be presented through the dichotomy in clothing.
SOUNDBITE (Chinese): VIVIENNE HU, Chinese Fashion Designer
"I was born in China, and I love my country very much. For me, if I have the opportunity to use Chinese elements, I will spare no effort. Our last season's Dunhuang series was very successful. It was the first time for us to use Chinese elements. Many people can see it. We actually combine Chinese elements with New York's street culture. I think our last season's attempt was extremely successful."
At the heart of Hu's design philosophy is the spirit of independent women; she displays both femininity and individuality with her own unique style.
Hu grew up in China and obtained her bachelor's degree in Finance at the University of Hohenheim, Germany.
Prior to studying fashion design at Parsons School of Design in New York, she worked as a financier at a leading investment bank on Wall Street.
