Hello, a bit about Me...

Press Released in UK

Kai Ting Chen is a recent graduate of FIT. She is a Taiwanese Fashion and Technical Designer, currently in New York City.

Her signature design is all about unexpected shapes and textiles based on skillful pattern making and draping techniques. She is specializing in experiments on fabrics and texture, using draping and unusual patterns to break the structure.

Before her studies in Fashion Institute of Technology, she has been honored as the finalist of FJU Talents Prize and released her collection SS19 on London Fashion Week with her namesake brand Kai Ting Chen.

Kai Ting’s concepts are usually inspired from her personal experience, and also probe psychological and philosophical issues in contemporary society. She aims to initiate reflective thinking and resonate with the audience through her collection.

This was a new take on menswear, and the increase in volume with each look was certainly a unique idea for a runway show.
