DESIGNED WITH A STRONG AND INDEPENDENT WOMAN IN MIND. RU CONSIDERS CLOTHES AS ARCHITECTURE AROUND A WOMAN’S BODY. INSPIRED BY EXPLODING AND CRACKING BUILDINGS, RU ATTEMPTS TO NEGOTIATE DIFFERENT GARMENTS’ SHAPES WITH WOMEN’S BODY THROUGH DECONSTRUCTING CLOTHES IN DIFFERENT TYPES AND MATERIALS. AFTER TWO YEARS STUDYING MA MATERIAL FUTURES AT CENTRAL SAINT MARTIN'S, RU AIMS TO COMBINE TEXTILE AND MATERIAL DESIGN WITH DECONSTRUCTED GARMENTS RESULTING IN EPIC VISUAL IDENTITY AND CASUAL BUT STRONG STATEMENT IN CONTEMPORARY FASHION DESIGN.

RU ALSO HAS EXPERIENCE IN CONTEMPORARY PERFORMANCE ART. HER DREAM IS TO PUSH THE IDEA EVEN FURTHER AND COLLABORATE WITH CHOREOGRAPHER AND DANCER ON A WIDER COLLECTION OF FASHION ACCESSORIES, COSTUMES AND A FULL-LENGTH DANCE PIECE. 

RU CHEN HAS BEEN AWARDED FASHION SCOUT'S COVETED "ONES TO WATCH" AWARD FOR AW17. SHE WILL RECEIVE A SPONSORED COLLABORATIVE CATWALK FOR AW17 ALONGSIDE THE OTHER RECIPIENTS, SUPPORTED BY FASHION SCOUT DURING LONDON FASHION WEEK.
