Shao Yen – Experiment with materials and forms

Shao Yen is a London-based knit designer, who was born and raised in Taiwan. He has graduated successfully with a womensline in Central St. Martins and despite his young age, he already managed to intern at Alexander McQueen, Claire Tough and Hussein Chalayan.

The idea behind Shao Yen´s Designs is to combine traditional knitting techniques with unusual and innovative materials. He mixes nylon string with cashmere, a touch of lycra and other miraculous materials to form extraordinary bold, graphic yet soft silhouettes. Quite impressive, so we think, and wonder what comes next. But first, let’s have a look at Shao Yen’s fluffy oeuvre:
