Gorgeous Fall 2019 Huishan Zhang Runway Black & Silver Sequin Dress w Feather Sleeves
Huishan Zhang was launched in 2012 and his label has garnered a loyal following. He studied at Central Saint Martins College and worked at the Dior's Haute Couture Atelier during his 3rd year. In 2014 and again in 2015, Huishan was named the BOF 500 as one of the people shaping the Global Fashion Industry. He was also awarded the International Chinese Designer of the Year at the Elle China Style Awards in 2014. In 2015, he was a finalist for the LVMH Prize and in 2017 he was a nominee for the Vogue Fashion Fund. He is a bright and talented designer sure to do even more great things and I am very pleased to have this stunning piece by him on the shop.
The film Sabrina, starring Audrey Hepburn, was the central inspiration for the show mixed with couture ideas of the past. This was one of the strongest looks of the show and part of the closing line-up. The dress is easy to wear yet packs a tin of impact. It is cut in a loose and easy caftan feeling shape that skims over the body in a loose and easy shape from head to toe. The neckline is set wide and the sleeves are short and each ends in a magnificent pouf of feathers. These add so much drama and movement to the dress and I love them. The front of the dress is done in black sequins set into diamonds that run across the entire surface. The backing behind the sequins is in a black and this sits over a white lining to create a bit of depth and define the border of each diamond. Then when you turn he has done the entire back in the opposite using silver sequins on white for a stark contrast. The back is also dipped into a low V so that when you do turn and walk away it is almost a shock to see the silver and bare skin. I love it. The dress has all its original tags and has never been worn. Excellent condition
