Applying consciousness, passion, and substance as tools to emphasize a refined dressing experience. Designer Wanbing Huang embraces art and experimentation as leading components for Spring 2019.  Focusing on female's most subtle emotions, and their journey of self-discovery. This season's, theme "La Lumiere Interieure" was gathered from the designer's inspiration, "La cicatrice Interieure." An avant-garde French film, where a woman overcomes her emotional agony and desolation through self-resistance, eventually learning the definition of life.  Being deeply moved, Ms. Huang reflects on her influence from the film to present this breakthrough experience, creating a feminine yet persistent style as the foundation for her designs.

The romantically fluid collection of elegantly draped gowns that molded beautifully to the frame of the models, and the impeccably tailored suits with a splash of glamour, attached an artistically opulent aspect to the collection. It's no mistake that the charming style of the garments was visually fascinating and intense.  However, there was something devilishly intelligent about the evening ensembles. The designer's use of lace and organza, overlapping each other caused the silhouettes to appear more prominent. Plus, the use of exquisite embroidery techniques to form three-dimensional floral embellishments added a layered look to the garments.
