YOUZ FW15 at Fashion Now, Beijing
This was the first time I’d ever seen a YOUZ collection in person, and I was very happy I finally did. The designer is a professor, and you know what they say about those who teach…
But perhaps the man behind YOUZ is something of an exception, as he not only teaches but also does. He succeeded in balancing more creative endeavors with more commercial ones… Perhaps there weren’t many pieces that were both, but altogether the collection was balanced. There were pieces that I loved and others that I really didn’t love at all… But it’s impossible to please everyone, right? Well, he’s had a degree of commercial success without doing many shows, so he has to be reaching and pleasing some people here on the Mainland.
I’m looking forward to seeing future collections, although I’m not convinced he will be showing on the runway again… But I look forward to seeing how a more mature talent will develop, regardless of where I see his collection.
