Qipao collars, Chinese Miao embroidery, blocks of bright colours in striking contrast. The clothes of the Miao ethnic group are the inspiration behind this year's collection from Shiatzy Chen. They're calling it "neo-Chinese chic", transferring historical Chinese aesthetics into modern fashion design.
This year's Shiatzy collection is, as always, a combination of Chinese handicraft and western cuttings. The culture of China's Miao ethnic group comes through in the delicate embroidery, adding a unique flavor to the design.
Miao embroidery and culture is in serious danger of dying out, and the designer hopes the collection will raise its profile and help it survive.
Wang Chen Tsai-Hsia, designer of Shiatzy Chen, said, "We have the obligation to introduce Chinese culture to the whole world. We hope that our culture can be accepted, since it has long history and it is worthy to be passed on."
Wang added that, for her, the show is the realization of her dream of revitalizing the beauty of Chinese ethnic minority culture, an achievement she feels very proud of.
