LONDON - Chinese young fashion designer He Ping received applauses and acclaims on Friday at the London Fashion Week show, impressing the audience with her unique style of a dark romance and exposing her love for architecture.
At the catwalk show on Friday night, He Ping presented a collection embodied with the permanent white and dark color with modern twist.
In a monochromatic color palette, tough leather is juxtaposed with broderie anglaise details to create an elegant resistance.
The London-based fashion designer described her collection as "desirable to men and respected by women."
She said that her collection's signature style derives from her love of architecture, with the structured silhouettes combining with eye-catching details form the collection's aesthetic.
Employing contradictory concepts, He Ping's Spring/Summer 2014 collection sees soft and strong, elegant and powerful elements blended in subtle, neutral hues.
Designing for women, she said that her clothing truly empowers and flatters.
The 33-year-old fashion designer created her ready to wear label Ping He in 2011, with the support from Harvey Nichols' CEO Joseph Wan and former Chairman of the BFC Harold Tillman.
He Ping's creativity and vision were honed in through her work for fashion houses such as Alexander McQueen and previous appearances at London and Paris fashion week came when He Ping was entrusted with designing Aftershock's couture collection "Aftershock Gold".
