Bei Na Wei sculpture
Bei Na Wei is one of the extraordinary new innovative designers that I discovered a few months ago at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Sydney. Her designs can be described as having a modern femininity with a touch of luxury. Bei Na Wei uses fabrics in such an innovative way to give shape and form to garments. So much care and attention is given to create these intricate designs. Looking at these garments is like looking at a sculpture. You appreciate the shapes, dimensions and texture. And you can feel the atmosphere of calmness and beauty that it radiates.
This outfit reminds me of a beautifully spun silk cocoon. Its shape is sturdy and strong but at the same time it looks so delicate and soft. It is a design that cannot be described with only one word. There is an architectural strength with a feminine twist. One of my favorite innovative designers. I cannot wait to see the new collection.
