Helen Lee presented her eponymous collection on Sunday night at 800Show to Shanghai’s fashion elite, such as this beautiful young lady (my friend Hart from shanghaistylefile.com also noticed her):
The young Chinese designer is known quite well for her INSH collection, but that’s a bit more commercial than what she’s been wanting to do… She seems to have very stylish clientele, so why not launch a higher-end collection after the success of INSH?
The looks from the show were fine (not my favorite, to be honest), but I did love the hair and makeup (the hair wrapped under the chin, in case you can’t see… sorry, I was in the second row). I also liked the volume of this particular look (it was mostly pretty flat):
She also presented nice and comfy looking menswear:
The womenswear also had that cushy/fluffy vibe:
Overall, Mrs. Lee should be proud of this first presentation, but of course there’s always room for improvement. It’s a step in a more risky direction, and I really hope it pays off for her! I’ll continue to update you all on any developments 😉
