Fashion designer and rising star Jamie Wei Huang caught our eye during Milan Fashion Week. The 28-year-old Central Saint Martins graduate has already gained visibility among young designers with her cutting edge creations.
“What caught my eye was how she combines the traditional material and techniques from fine art such as glass, porcelain, and mosaics with the new and unseen futuristic elements. Jamie manages to skilfully translate these elements into original, wearable garments with beautiful details, silhouettes and cut-outs.
She is definitely one of our MUUSE x VOGUE Talents 2013 contestants that we (and apparently Lady Gaga) are keeping a close eye on”, said our Online Media and Marketing Director, Isabella Hemmersbach, after meeting Jamie at Milan Fashion Week.
London based Taiwanese designer Jamie Wei Huang recently founded her own label, after interning for both Alexander McQueen and Christopher Kane. Her conceptual, eclectic approach of mixing fabrics has been noted by celebrities like Lady Gaga.
The former MUUSE x Vogue Talents contestant’s background in fine art makes her collection stand out. We are looking forward to an in depth interview with her!
