CHINA FASHION COLLECTIVE is a talent platform created in 2016 by HAN Media to connect China’s burgeoning pool of original fashion talent with the international industry. Each season, CFC selects exceptional Chinese designers to showcase in featured runway presentations at New York Fashion Week. For Spring/Summer ’18, China Fashion Collective returns to NYFW with China’s top bridal designer TSAI MEIYUE and new couture darling VANCY LAW. Declared “China’s most famous bridal designer” by China Daily in 2015 and having won the Mercedes-Benz Chinese Fashion Week’s “Top Ten Designers” award for three consecutive years, TSAI MEIYUE will redefine Chinese craftsmanship with her meticulously finished pieces that are modern reinterpretations of traditional Chinese wedding-wear. This season her collection casts light on the ancient art of Min Xiu, an embroidery technique native to Southern China from which she hails. VANCY LAW opened Wuhan’s first couture atelier in 2009 after graduating from ESMOD, since then she has been featured frequently in Chinese fashion media for her evening wear’s timeless silhouettes and stunning hand-finished couture details. Today her designs are loved by Chinese celebrities and often featured in editorials, her S/S ’18 collection aptly titled “Jardin Nuage” attempt to capture the ephemeral beauty of clouds at twilight, a theme painstakingly translated into stunning gowns stitch by stitch at her atelier over hundreds of hours.
