Here at MANIERA DISTRICT we like to bring you news of up and coming talent. In this issue we focus on Chinese born Min Wu, an emerging fashion designer who has had a great deal of success in her short career. She graduated from the London College of Fashion with a Masters degree in womenswear in 2013. In September of the same year she gained a place in Fashion Scout’s internationally recognized graduate showcase and subsequently presented her Autumn/Winter 2014 and Spring/Summer 2015 collections at the prestigious London Fashion week.
The images featured here form part of the SS 2015 ‘Attach/Detach’ collection which incorporates a layered look using contrasting and complementary fabric textures. The use of light transparent fabrics creates a fresh almost ethereal look to her designs with an interesting use of cool but bright pastel shades.
Wu explains the concept behind the collection:
“…the realness of “one” will be different if a part has been “detached” then “reattached”. If a piece of cloth is cut in half and then reattached to its original form, has a new object been created or is it still the same piece before the cut was made? Is it the same as before or has a new piece formed? Taking in to consideration the above, Wu continues to explore the original beauty that is born from the deliberate combination of functional materials, with particular emphasis on technology and the reflection of this in the world today. With advanced technology surrounding us, humans are able to experience and see things from all over the world without being present.”
