SUSAN FANG is a London based contemporary womenswear brand, established in 2017 after Susan Fang graduated from Central Saint Martins. With a focus on perception and mathematics, each collection combines innovative textile, colours, and silhouettes to create garments and accessories with artistic originality.
Originally from China, Susan Fang grew up in Canada and the United States, and then moved to London to study fashion at Central Saint Martins. Following her previous experience at Kei Kagami, Céline, and Stella McCartney, Susan wanted to launch her label to translate her worldview into conceptual fashion pieces. SUSAN FANG is inspired by concepts relating to the perception of beauty and the instinctive allure of nature-the-ever-present fractals. These precise mathematical formulas of repetition and rhythm create the most beautiful chaos with understandable geometries.
For Autumn/Winter 2018 Susan developed an entirely new weave technique she named as ‘Air-weave’, which allows the fabric itself to float between two and three-dimensional realms, leading to a design and textile innovation that presents colours and forms with fluid movements. A technique she further explored in Spring/Summer 2019 and continues to develop and expand for future fabrications.
The vision of SUSAN FANG is to not be led by trend or style or even an aesthetic, but to surpass the realm of design to express a mirage of artistic illusions.
