The Business of Fashion on Instagram

The Business of Fashion on Instagram

An essential daily resource for fashion creatives, executives and entrepreneurs all over the world.

Back in March, designer Caroline Hu won the inaugural #BoFChinaPrize, in partnership with @yu_holdings. Today, it was her moment to shine again as she showcased her collection to international buyers, press and other members of the fashion industry during an intimate presentation at Paris #HauteCouture Week.

Having also been shortlisted for this year s LVMH Prize, it is no surprise that insiders were already tuned into Hu s tableau of modern femininity. Slivers of pink and green along the neckline of a pastel yellow ensemble recall Monet s Water Lilies, while tufts of tulle cascade alongside painstakingly smocked strokes of lace and silk, forming a vibrant textural  camouflage.  Navel-baring, deconstructed silhouettes made the pieces more covetable, less Versailles excess. Her complex signature is the product of hundreds of hours (Hu s more colourful creations can take a week to execute when she s working alone) of solitary work and an instinctual eye.

Learn more about the young designer, her aesthetic and how she plans to grow her emotionally charged couture label into a resilient business. [Link in bio]
