Electroluminescent Fashion by Vega Zaishi Wang
Born in 1985 in Liaoning province, Vega Zaishi Wang moved to Shenzhen with her parents at the age of 8. She left at the tender age of 16 to move to London to study fashion design. For the next six years, Vega studied at both London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martins College of Fashion Womenswear, during which she also interned for Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood. All of these experiences, combined with the infectious charisma of British culture, inspired Vega to push her creativity to a brand new level. In 2008, she returned to China to establish her eponymous brand VEGA ZAISHI WANG.
As a recent graduate,Vega has already been recognized as one of China’s independent designers in terms of both originality and quality. Most products are hand-made with a majority of fabrics sourced from across Asia and Europe. Her aesthetic certainly reflects her cultural heritage but is also largely influenced by her time spent in the UK. The shapes and silhouettes are slightly exaggerated, but she focuses specifically on a purity of tone, exceptional hand-craftsmanship, and a quiet charm that has already resonated with clients around the world.
