Our featured designer is Judy Wu, a graduate of Central Saint Martin's in London. Judy Wu has worked for the House of Holland, Jasmine De Melo and Ne-tiger - a couture house in Shanghai, before embarking on the launch of her own label this year. Representing chic elegance with a playful yet hard edge, Judy Wu combines structural pattern cutting techniques with with the finest fabrics to create truly unique garments.
Her debut A/W 13 collection 'A Crack in Time' is inspired by an ancient Chinese totem. Totem symbols such as dragons, clouds, waves and fire are recreated through laser-cut tinted suede, silk and leather. Juxtaposing fabrics sit together to represent different symbols living in tandem. Luxurious fabrics are used to create each piece including 100% wool, cashmere blended wool, 100% silk and lamb nappa leather. As a luxury women's wear label, the recommended retail price begins at £200.
Judy Wu is currently stocked widely across Japan and the label is now focused upon establishment within the UK market. You can visit her website here to learn more about Judy Wu, an insight to her collection and images of her press coverage.
