Wu Zetian is arguably the most representative symbol of feminine power in ancient China, and she serves as inspiration for this collection. Following a theme of ‘Magic Journey’, glossy, fluorescent and metallic patterns were featured. Prominent swathes of traditional Chinese embroidery contributed an imperial effect.

Carina Lau is considered a symbol of independent and autonomous women. Here in the new collection, Lau was inspired by the image of female awakening in the 1980s. The series featured masculine elements, including leather and metal wires, generating a tough and self-sufficient image of the modern female.

Rosamund Kwan stuns the world with her new designs inspired by the American Vintage style of the 18th and 19th centuries. Here Kwan envisions surrealism through neat garment silhouettes, exotic linings, prints, and feathery embellishments. This is a versatile collection: classic, romantic, vibrant and energetic.

‘Gypsies’ are a recurring thematic inspiration within fashion – the European nomads are known for taking pride in their mysterious charisma, freedom and unique culture. This collection adopts glossy fabrics to create an air of mysticism, while the ‘starry’ details evoke the gypsy tradition of astrology and palm reading.
