Jade Juanyu Liu Fall 2012 collection at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion week. A native of Shanghai, Jade took her inspiration from her collection by French collage artist Damien Blottiere, who had an innovative layering technique that creates shadows and empty space. I especially liked her quartz bonded microfiber top and skirt, which made fashion effortlessly easy and chic.
