Fly Me To The Moon by Fangwen Xu
In the latest seasons most of the collections realized by famous brands sometimes lack in innovation, of course there are exceptions, but if we want to find something really experimental we need to follow the pupils of the major international fashion schools; there are young designers who have their imagination free from stale iconography and ready to propose new languages of style mixed with art. Fangwen Xu, student of the London College of Fashion has charmed us with creations came from distant worlds, from the moon in this case, but with a high quality of tailoring that challenge the now-known fashion experts. Different lines design different shapes with shorter lenghts and voluptuous volumes, the white dazzles through its textural mix, the light is reflected by the difference of fabrics.Transparency is suggested by geometric shapes that redesign the waist. Fabrics transform the body into ephemeral transparent figures. Stripes have always been my strongest passion and they are here stressed with an avant-garde design for future outfits.
The designer: “Considering my design, I would not use fashion, elegance, minimalism or other specific words to describe my style. I have used my pure imagination to present an art and a state of being. It presents the vulnerability, silence and wonder of life, a human form that leaves the restriction of reality away to reach an unlimited space. It seems everyone has in his/her mind a subtle piece of garment indicating the secret dwelling of his/her soul. Once it is found, a consistent state of being will be discovered. The garment seems to reveal life experience and secret. It uncovers an infinite and extraordinary vision epically out of the restrained physical form. My design is for a harmonious world full of pure delight, dream and romance; and for people who are attractive and warm hearted”
