design in china

Uma Wang, Qiu Hao, Pari Chen, Alex Wang, Vega Zaishi Wang, Xander Zhou, Keevan Zhai and Zhang Na are just a handful of the exceptional new design talent originating from China today.  As China expands beyond a country focused primarily on industry and development and starts to nurture creativity such as fashion design, architecture, art and even molecular gastronomy, we are starting to see a unique creative voice that is inherently and unabashedly Chinese.  Their designs are often inspired by Chinese shapes and traditions, but their overseas education has allowed them to fuse references from their homeland with international influences, making their designs thoroughly exciting and original.  Surface Asia, one of our favourite bimonthly magazines, recently ran an extensive expose on eight up-and-coming fashion designers in China today; what Surface found was a group of young creatives with a fierce dedication to their craft, a deep appreciation for new technology and textiles, and an infallible desire to make their mark on the fashion industry.
