Inspired by tailoring and corsetry history, Zexi Yu is quite literally a menswear fairy tale come true. She translated her otherworldly, risqué attitude into garments filled with intricate silhouettes, dutch satin and effeminate detailing.

Yu augmented her garments through elaborate lining and shoulder pad silhouettes. This allowed her to fashion ingenius designs that were further heightened through adept tailoring. The effeminate colours and idea of lingerie allowed her to reinvent menswear in a more open minded way.

Her graduate collection has an attachment of mystery and excitement. The contrast of masculinity and femininity enhances Zexi’s designs. Her attention to detail captivates her audience and her richly deep and sophisticated colour palette fits perfectly with each textural weave creating a breathtakingly memorable collection.
