Laurence Xu Paris Haute Couture Spring 2015

Laurence Xu is one of China's most successful fashion designers, designing exquisite pieces for celebrities and princesses. His haute couture collections have wowed the crowds at catwalks across the world, including at Paris Fashion Week. Xu made his impressive debut in Paris at the haute couture collections in July 2013 with his exquisitely embroidered cocktail dresses and jumpsuits, the colourful summation of thousands of hours of delicate handwork at his atelier in Beijing.

On Jan. 27, 2015, he returned to the Paris catwalk with his second presentation of hand-painted and vividly embroidered cocktail dresses and gowns inspired by the extraordinary Buddhist frescoes that decorate the caves in the Dunhuang region of northern China. Xu might find international admirers but when it comes to clientele his classicism and unfaltering Chinese aesthetic can be limiting.
