Ban Xiao Xue FW15 at Shanghai Fashion Week, Xin Tian Di

First off, this was a HUGE collection. I had high hopes for it, and amongst the many, many, many looks that were presented, I found a lot to love. This guy is so talented, but I think he lacks the ability to edit… I think he, like many other young designers in China, just has too many ideas.

Scroll down if you have lots of time, or try and find the time to find out more about this brand because it is certainly one to watch. He will be a commercial success, and I think he will also be a creative success. It’s unfortunate that he won’t produce his more creative or expensive pieces, but hopefully his brand will evolve to include all of his runway looks because some are too good to be lost to an archive that most people will never have access to. Some looks could go there and humanity wouldn’t be worse off for it… I don’t want to see what designers create that is mediocre, so please next time edit.

I wouldn’t say this was his strongest collection, but overall I have to applaud not only his commercial prowess but also creative endeavors. China needs more young talent like Ban Xiao Xue.
