About the designer,

Growing up in a family of surgeons and seeing her parents whose shared life goal was to cure peoples’ illnesses sparked her conviction to boost empathy and overcome her own challenges. Realizing her strength was in design, Sun’s working principle became to combine fashion with function. She creates garments and accessories that seek to disrupt societal stereotypes and by doing so support customer values.


Underscored by her belief in the significance of wearability and durability of fashion, Sun built her own method of design. She pays extensive attention to construction details and finishings, underlining the quality of garments. Inspired by menswear tailoring and formal wear, she often utilizes alternative patternmaking skills to externalize her concept visually.
