East meets West – LAN YU debuts bridal collection at MBFWA2014

Lan Yu is the first Chinese fashion designer to show at MBFWA. She presented her enchanting bridal collection in ‘The Box” at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia with Jesinta Campbell posing in one of her most remarkable designs.

The ethereal collection featured floating delicate white gowns with crystal embellishments, feminine silhouettes and lots of tulle around the body.

The young designer has began learning a type of traditional embroidery known as ‘Su Xiu’ from her mother at the age of six, followed by her studies at the Fashion Institute of Technology both in Beijing and New York, where she picked up the best of both worlds delicately balancing exquisite Chinese embroidery techniques with Western structural design and fabrics.
