Known for using 100% natural materials, the bespoke and ready-to-wear collections are hand sewn in London. According to show notes, everything from shoulder pads, embroidered buttons, inseam buttonholes to decorative silk petals are handmade.
Designer Cho Cho Cheng has a meticulous eye for tailoring techniques. He studied at Parsons School of Design and apprenticed in Savile Row, London which helped develop his traditional, yet contemporary, and expertly trained hand — evident in the round shoulders and oversized collars.
His models walked the collection with pinup style hair accompanied by a bright red lip to a jazzy score, instantly transporting the audience six decades back.
