I first heard of Xander Zhou is his role as a guest editor for iLook magazine, he came up with the concept of  “coming out”, that became the most controversial gay issue of the mainstream magazine. Educated in the Netherlands, Xander is a fashion designer, I don’t really want to label him as a Chinese fashion designer, for his work is very international.

Sitting on the front roll of his fashion show in a warehouse in 798 Art District in Beijing, together with many familiar faces in the industry, the seating was way to intimate to take any good photos.

Xander’s presentation is progressive, bold and confrontational. Thumbs up.
