Wednesday, September 13, 2018 designer Xinyin Xu presented her Spring/Summer 2018 Vicky Zhang collection featuring women’s and coordinating children’s eveningwear, during New York Fashion Week at Skylight Clarkson Square. The child models stole the show as they made their way down the runway in tailored blazers and ruffled dresses alongside similarly designed adult ensembles creating chic “mother and child” looks.
The Vicky Zhang (Vicky’Z) 2018 Spring/ Summer Collection was inspired by the Tang Dynasty seamlessly blending this high point of Chinese civilization with modern art.
Xu brought her couture sensibility to the creation of her parent & child collection incorporating Lotus flowers throughout to symbolize peace, love and harmony. Hollowed-out shading and beaded craftwork were special touches along with fine Chinese silks in gold, white and teal. Chinese embroidery, simple and delicate handwork brought the elegant collection to life.
