Fashion Scout, the international showcase for fashion innovation, can now announce Cassandra Verity Green, Keiko Nishiyama, Min Wu and Youjia Jin as the SS15 Ones To Watch designers.
Cassandra Verity Green
Taking inspiration from her personal experience, emotion and memory, knitwear designer Cassandra Verity Green’s body of work is one that intertwines a playful sensibility with innocence. Recently graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2013, the technique driven designer has gained sponsorship from Spinexpo and Santoni Shanghai and already caught the attention of press among the likes of Dazed and Confused and Hunger.
Japanese born Keiko Nishiyama graduated from MA fashion design at London College of Fashion in 2013 before starting up her label. Showing her graduate collection to positive review, her designs play with imbalance and are crafte from delicate hand-drawn prints. Her attention to detail and innovative work have already been featured in publications such as i-D Magazine.
Min Wu designs her collections with a bold modern woman in mind. Interlacing lines and fluid shapes to create strong visual contrast, she was a part of our graduate showcase in September 2013. An individual who strived to explore the original beauty that is born from the deliberate combination of functional materials, with particular emphasis on technology and the reflection of this in the world today, we look forward to seeing what she brings to the One to Watch showcase in September.
Youjia Jin, fashion designer and buyer, graduated with an MA in womenswear from the London College Of Fashion this year. Having been previously educated at Central Saint Martins and the Beijing Institute of Fashion and Technology, she was awarded a top 10 menswear designer award in China. Her previous collections have received huge praise from top UK and international press, including that of British Vogue, British GQ, i-D and iLOOK Magazine.
