Ris­ing Star: AN­GEL CHEN

Marie Claire (Malaysia) - - Fashion -

Chi­nese de­signer An­gel Chen is one of the coun­try’s ris­ing stars of fash­ion. Born in Shen­zen, the Cen­tral Saint Martins alumni cut her teeth at March­esa, Vera Wang and Alexan­der Wang in New York. She launched her epony­mous la­bel soon af­ter grad­u­a­tion and has since pre­sented her col­lec­tions at Mi­lan, New York and Shang­hai Fash­ion Week. Chen is known for her charis­matic fu­sion of East and West. Cou­pled with bold colours, her unique de­signs have won her an in­ter­na­tional fan base and has drawn in­ter­est from celebri­ties such as Fan Bing­bing, Kris Wu, Chris Lee, Char­lie XCX and Bella Ha­did. Her la­bel is now stocked at 70 re­tail­ers in­clud­ing Sel­fridges, Lane Craw­ford and Luisa Via Roma, fur­ther ce­ment­ing her spot amongst a new wave of bright Chi­nese tal­ents. The de­signer also re­cently col­lab­o­rated with Swedish high street gi­ant H&M and is the first Chi­nese de­signer to do so.
