Hello my lovelies,
As I promised I am bringing you here interview with Haizhen Wang, straight from his studio. I am still under the massive impression of talking to a designer like him, so wanted to pass on all the excitement as soon as. Sorry about the photo and text overload, but I am sure you will find him very interesting, just like I did. You can check out Haizhen Wang label right HERE
1. When did you realise you wanted to become a fashion designer?
My passion for this job started while I was still in China. I was doing my diploma in interior design, and in the last year changed it to fashion. I understood that fashion is my destiny, so when I came to England I pursued my dream.
2. What was the first piece of clothing that you designed?
In the beginning I was only designing clothes for myself, mens’ clothes. And that’s when I won a competition by a surprise, so started realising that people appreciate my work.
3. How would you define your personal style?
I love dark colours and edgy style, however my first collection was a bit different. I loved darker colours from the beginning of my career, even though I wanted to change and add a bit of colour in my first collection.
In the shop with Anna
7. What is the difference between Paris and London Fashion Week for you?
Sometimes its street market from Portobello, architecture…Sometimes I pick pictures, from historical families, but it can be anything really.
I imagine a woman 25-45 years old, very confident woman that knows what she wants, and has a certain social status. Those women care about quality of life and can be a strong career woman, but does not have to be. I am still trying to expand the styles and make it as versatile as possible. And I am also planning to do a small menswear collection.
12. I have noticed that all of your designs are created in England. Have you considered creating your clothes in China?
Production in England is very expensive and its hard to create a jacket or a piece that is under £600 of good quality material and still earn from it. People are stopping to buy clothes that is produced in England, because its too expensive, but otherwise there is no profit. Companies that produce in China still have a big profit and are covered for expenses and can easily afford best fabric for it. To produce a piece in England it costs around £150 , so when you sell the item people think the price is too high. Its the writing “Made in England” that costs so much. So I am definitely considering at the moment production in China.
Thank you all for reading this interview. Hope you like it, and hope it gave you an idea of what fashion industry from that side is like.
Love you all xoxo
