The London Fashion Week at the Somerset House: home of famous, new and rediscovered designers. Among them, Apu Jan is a young designer who has been doing a fantastic job since 2013 and represents one of the most interesting talents in UK. Apu Jan comes from Taiwan, but he lives in London, where he graduated from the Royal College of Arts, with a MA in Fashion Womenswear and a main focus on knitwear. His ability in working with knit is incredible: he an combine history with fantasy, real and surreal, thread after thread. Oriental traditions merge with modernity, innovation and randomness unite in unique and particular pieces, which are beautiful to admire, but also ready to wear.
The FW 2015 collection is called “Deep into the Woods”, an evocative name for a mood that is a mixture of fairytale and mystery. Apu Jan loves to tell a story through his works, made with jacquard patterns, digital print and different knitting techniques. A collection of tales of fantasy in the darkness of the woods, an atmosphere that during the fashion show becomes real, thanks to the choice of lights and music, which made the clothes and the catwalk even more appealing.
