China Fashion Week is not only a platform for established designers, but also one for young rookies to show their stuff. A show that features works by students from the Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology, clearly demonstrates the strength of up-and-coming designers.
Literately translated as "Shape Freely and Move at Ease", this show focuses on creative design through technology and materials, but also wearability.
Twenty-two sets of clothes are all business menswear. Some display a sense of volume by patching different materials together, highlighting the gentlemanly and masculine.
Others are inspired by movies, and give a new feel to urban menswear. Designs and colors are a combination of creativity and functionality.
The students provide an energetic and youthful flair ahead of the known fashion gurus and aficionados.
As the show’s title suggests, the designs abound with unrestrained imagination.
Watching these works is like watching the future of Chinese fashion. And this show might very well be the beginning of something big, as these students strive to start careers in the industry.
