Chictopia SS15 Fashion Show at FashionNow, Beijing

So Chictopia was the main reason I went to Beijing… I’m not the biggest fan in the world, particularly because of the pollution (which was “hazardous” while I was there), but I had to make it to Beijing for her show specifically. She and Helen Lee were the first Chinese designers to sell at Lane Crawford, and it was 2011 when I first presented these designers to the venerable department store… It took them a couple of years, but Chictopia has delivered one season after another and her consistency is admirable to say the least. She constantly comes up with endearing, exclusive patterns and illustrations (her background is as a textile designer, which is a huge bonus in China), so you’ll always see something different from her. But she always sticks to her own aesthetic, which is fun and feminine and flirty (and this season DELICIOUS), which you can see below:
