Chinese University Design Competition
14 May 2019
We recently hosted the 5th annual Chinese Mohair Design Competition in Shanghai. 5 universities chose their top 10 applicants, with 50 students showcasing their designs in the final show. Leandi Mulder from the Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology took first place with her magnificent mohair woven design. The jacket and trousers were hand-woven combining colours, various yarn weights and textures to create an expressive radiant and unique surface. The loose fitting cowl-neck top was created with hand knitted squares which were then stitched together creating a simple sleeves top combined with patchwork appliques.
