“I think the idea of dressing for your body type can accidentally villainise aspects of our bodies that we should be proud of,” says Lisa Von Tang.
As the Chinese New Year approaches, we spoke with the designer on how you can invest in a Lisa Von Tang creation as your next traditional wear piece to own.
The Singapore-based designer of Chinese-German descent, Lisa Von Tang is making a mark in the fashion scene with her own fusion of South-East Asian culture and trendy silhouettes that you see today. From her iconic mandarin-collar bomber jacket piece to velvet kimonos and empress-style designs on straight-cut pants, it’s obvious how her designs are adored by many. While she’s widely known for her fusion of cultures, women empowerment and expressing that wow-factor, Lisa’s pieces bring triumph just by admiring it.
You’ll spot elements of cultures by her uses of luxurious fabrics, distinctive essence of the mandarin buttons/collars, intricate embroidery, and so much more on a silhouette that anyone can wear as everyday attire. Her latest Chinese New Year collection is the right balance of bold, sultry and traditional to embrace the festivities (even though we’re limited to celebrating indoors). Scroll down to read our conversation with Lisa on her label and how you can pick the right cheongsam silhouette for your body type.
