"Geometric and asymmetric aesthetics, juxtaposing philosophy, and more-than-garments soul."
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Xingyuan Xu (b. 1994, China) graduated in 2016 from Parsons The New School of Design (NYC) with a bachelor degree in Fashion Design. Informed by her love for fine art and literature since young, she has developed an abstract and two-dimensional perspective of the world. When the complexity of perception and memory filters through, it turns into confrontations between spacing and density, asymmetry and balancing, as well as lines and colors which conceal and reveal each other in front of her. Xu's design materializes her perspective and brings it into three-dimensional garments. Featured this unique design process, her works are mostly results of a self-producing system rather than having a concrete reference like an established style or trend.
Xu's work was selected into Parsons BFA 2016 Fashion Show, displayed at Saks Fifth Ave, covered by The Impression, WWD, Schön! Magazine, Risk Magazine and FGUK Magazine, and published on Sicky Magazine and Photo Vogue.
ABOUT THE BRAND
Named after the designer, XINGYUAN XU's founding (since 2016) is based on the idea of "becoming"— it is moving parallel but without intermingling with the times. XINGYUAN XU refuses to be defined and refuses to repeat itself visually. It is the antithesis to things "that have been created, known and categorized".
Vision of XINGYUAN XU: A person with invisible personalities. Identity is separate from her past, education, or cultural background. Her stereotypes are erased, leaving mysterious silence to be explored. She is the mixture of many elements, while she is also the blank space that can look like anything but doesn’t belong to anywhere. She does not fit into any deceptive ideology, and she’s always wandering outside the everyday life that treasures simplicity. She carries in herself a reasonable amount of absurdity and theatricality without trying to.
