Zhang Na, Designer and Humanitarian

Zhang Na is an upcoming domestic fashion designer who is gaining popularity for her unique eye. The young fashion designer graduated from Xi'an Academy of Fine Arts in the department of Fashion Design Education. She later studied in France at the MOD'ART Institute of Fashion Design. After returning home, she served as the brand director of a domestic clothing brand for several years. Following this managerial experience in 2008, she created her own respective brand named FAKENATOO. The new brand received widespread domestic attention and was quickly sought after by the industry and the media. After just a few years, FAKENATOO has become extremely influential within China's fashion industry. 

 
Finally in 2011, Zhang Na set up a project called Reclothing Bank, that is designed to encourage recycling and to assist less privileged Chinese. The project was built around Zhang Na's philosophy that clothing, and fashion is a blend of past and future. Discarded or donated old clothes is an essential resource for her program in which women's cooperatives split, reorganization, and distribute used clothing. 
 
NEEMIC is inspired by this designer's humanitarian work as well as her effort to recycle clothing. We hold Zhang Na as an example to work towards and hope that others in the industry will follow suit.
