Y: What are some of the key features of your designs? Upon which tropes do you rely most heavily?
V: My designs are generally succinct and linear. I prefer handcrafting and natural things.
Y: Which fashion designer do you most admire? What type of fabric do you like most?
V: Ann Demeulemeester. I like natural fibers like wool and silk.
Y: What do you think about style in Beijing?
V: Most people here still go after namebrands. Beijing is a multifaceted place, but it is still only a minority that understands what it wants style-wise.
Y: From whence came the inspiration for your graduation collection? I’m curious about how your beautiful designs were able glow?
V: I tend to express my emotional state through my designs. The items in my graduation show used E.L lamps or Electroluminescent Light – thin, flexible and energy efficient lights embedded in the fabrics.
Y: Where can your designs be purchased?
V: In Beijing, you can come to my workshop. Others can go to my taobao store.
