XY Global Fashion Collective NYFW S/S 2019
XY is the first letter of the word Xiyuan, which can be roughly translated as "Cherish Predestined Relationship", a concept that has a lot to do with Buddhism philosophy. "Yuan" can be understood as good karma perhaps. In terms of her inspirations, most of them stem from ethnic Chinese cultures with a focus on the finer elements in the embroidery works of the ethnic Miao people, fused with Chinese red and contemporary fashion concepts. She transcended the solidarity and constraints of traditional ethnic culture and expanded on the concept of "what's ethnic is international". The totems in red in her works represents the mythical energy guarding the people living in the mountains. The red totems give life to modern fashion, radiating love and passion for life. They are utterly different and out-of-this-worldly, a metamorphose of vogue and a lasting classic. She was born in Guizhou Province, known for its diverse ethnic cultures and pristine natural sceneries. She's 46 years of age. She has a bachelor's degree and has been working as a freelancer. She's multitalented and works as a fashion and interior designer. She's also a popular writer with several books published and is well-liked by travel story readers. Her graffiti-style paintings with vivid colors have been invited to exhibit in many art galleries. She has been invited to show her design works by many organizations worldwide and has won accolades by professionals and the general population alike.
