A strong interest in exploring unique materials for garments is the driving force behind Qi Rui’s designs. She is always welding, engaging in woodworking or screen printing and sewing in the making of her garment pieces.

Qi Rui displays the understanding of clothing to mould her collection pieces on a model, creating sleeves and trouser legs where required. The unconventional nature of the collection leads to possible varied styling options every time, lending a fresh look to the collection every single time.
