ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Hu Sheguang 胡社光 is a designer of Mongolian origin that graduated at the Dutch academy for fine arts and design Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. At just 16, Hu ventured alone to Europe, where he washed dishes as a part time job to learn Dutch, while pursuing his education in fashion design. His passionate hardworking attitude attracted admiration from those around him. He once produced 45 fashion shows within a year. Hu has lived abroad for 25 years, and he has designed for the Queen of the Netherlands.
Throughout his years abroad, he designed many dresses for attending Cannes, all statement masterpieces. Among his previous designs there were many avant-garde series which pushes the fashion boundaries, all of those were done in fine European couture. When he returned to China 3 years ago, Hu began to think more about how to incorporate Chinese elements into his designs. He has since used elements combine Oriental European art in fashion to interpret his inspired fashion, and has made a bold fashion launch and name in China.
