• Ping He • S/S14 •

Ping He is a Chinese fashion designer who launched her eponymous label at London Fashion Week this season. I was lucky enough to attend the show and was also invited to the launch party but was unable to attend.

She had Mary Charteris DJ at the event. Mary is British aristocracy being the daughter of the Earl of Wemyss and March. She's also a model who's signed with Premier Model Management.

Ping attended Suzhou University (BA) and Nottingham University (MA) for fashion design.  Ping, who's worked for leading labels such as Alexander McQueen. Also she was the design director in London for label Aftershock. She even started the label's first couture line. She won the Outstanding Young Chinese Person in London Award at the British Retail Awards.

For Spring 2014 her girl was elegant and airy. A pleated midi length white skirt paired with a white top with sheer sleeves opened the show. Dramatic black lips with a gold strip running through them was very effective against the all white look. When the white and black empire waist gown hit the runway my heart stopped. I love a gown as much as the next person but this one was particularly captivating. 

Laura Whitmore, Poppy Delevigne and Tanya Burr were all sat front row at the wonderfully lit show. They each looked chic and rocked their own personal style.

Oozing femininity and airiness the clothes weren't to be missed.
