Shie Lyu focuses on exploring the possibility of craftsmanship and bringing back the artistic values of fashion. For each collection, there are always fully handcrafted pieces that are produced sustainably by recycling the leftovers, dead-stock or flawed materials. Through the exquisite couture techniques like 3D embroidery, weaving, knotting or crochet, these useless materials grew into garments in a sculptural approach and finally turns into sophisticated styles.
In Shie Lyu’s world, futuristic craftsmanship forms the most glamour chaos and futuristic femininity without losing the elegant wearability.
