She even dabbled in womenswear this season, with a few strong pieces that show promise if this young designer ever chooses to branch out… But this season, Jiang Ling asserted her position as one of the leading menswear designers in China, and probably the edgiest and most provocative… But don’t take my word for it, take a look yourself and let me know what you think!
