Xiang Zhang Fall 2012

Xiang Zhang Fall 2012 collection at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion week.Originally from Shanghai, China, Xiang Zhang has a very interesting philosophy in fashion‒ the highest form of beauty can be explained by mathematics. In his collection, Xiang took his inspiration from Plato’s theory of golden ratios, to determine the proportions, number of stitches, and pattern orientation in all of his designs. His flirtation with taupe silk and mohair wool dress immediately caught my attention.

Amy Bond Fall 2012 collection at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion week. Born in Idaho and growing in Texas, Illinois, and Pennsylvania, Amy was always interested in complex shapes and construction without the frills and the drama. She especially wanted to achieve these complexities in the most minimal and clear way. In her collection, Amy made great use of silk tricot jackets and aubergine wool dress to create a flowy, goddess look in her models

Wu Di Fall 2012

Wu Di Fall 2012 collection at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion week. Native of Liao Ning providence of China, Wu Di took her inspiration from the work of printmaker Aaron Coleman and his use of geometric shapes. In her collection, she richly embedded angular silhouettes and geometric patterns by using cashmere knits and double-face wool. The mesh of soft ivory and camel colors and more subdued gray and black made the bold crossover patterns to attention.

Jade Juanyu Liu Fall 2012

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.
