EXHIBITION| Nova Chiu FEB'13
After a "whole bunch of travelling", Nova Chiu's Autumn/ Winter Collection landed in the Fashion Scout showroom, exhibiting to members of the international press and buying market. The polychromatic quirks of duo, Nova Chiu's and Jeff Archer's forthcoming collection were inspired by Nam June Paik's 'Electric Super Highway', which in turn was a point of reference stemming from the pair's travels across American and Chiu's native, China. We caught up with the two designers to find out how what's changed since they last showed with us in September.
"... [This season is] an evolution of last season. Last season we were doing a mass road-trip across China and America so we did a lot of prints last season with a lot of bright colours. This season we've still got the colours but we haven't got every colour of the rainbow. We wanted to bring black back into it too so we've got that."
... and on working with Fashion Scout for a third consecutive season:
"Last season we were in Paris for the first time which was awesome, we really liked it. Martyn's a big supporter so we really like working with him and the whole team at Fashion Scout are really cool."
