One to watch, Zhixiang Wang based her distinct London college of Fashion MA16 final collection on San Mao, a Chinese poet and writer. The Chinese designer presented exaggerated oversized bows, and tucked hems in a feminine play on proportions and simple colour palette of white and orange.
‘San Mao spent her life seeking freedom and true love. I grew up reading her stories; my collection is kind of like a small dream, representing her poem with my designs. Hers was a sad, romantic story but she was a very strong woman.’
