Following the nature and body-inspired A/W10 and S/S11 collections, this season sees Shao Yen take on the theme of "goddess" and continue to marvel us with exaggerated, empowering silhouettes.

Having recently participated in Selfridges' Bright Young Things project in February and Nicola Formichetti pop up shop in New York in Sept 2011. He also designed a new dress for iceland singer Bjork for her new music project in 2011. With inspirations from the elegant, mysterious, and powerful goddesses from the East and West, Shao Yen replaces the soft lines of drapes and pleats that often associate with the classic image of goddess with the cording technique and transforms these soft lines into more graphic, relief-like contours. Carefully blended with Swarovski crystals and voluminous fur, Shao Yen's A/W11 collection presents an eclectic lineup that sets him ready for a new departure.
