Finally we met at somerset house’s designer showroom during last London fashion week aw15. “Hello!” with shy face was our first time to see face to face. She absolutely showed her gorgeous new collections with adorable smile and welcoming. We have contacted each other for a year. When I came across her stunning lookbook, I did not hesitate to contact to her and make a feature of ‘cynthia mak‘.  In this AW15 collection, the strong red knot and printed jumpers caught my eyes.

Cynthia Mak was first exposed to arts through her studies in graphics design. She then attended the Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design (CSM) to further pursue her interests. There, she was immersed in a sea of young, talented fashion students whose strong passion and skills inspired her to begin her new journey in fashion.

Beginning afresh in a new field, she devoted her life in learning about fashion and constructing garments. With her enthusiasm and endless hours of work, she graduated from CSM with distinction. Her strong final collection also garnered her the praise of Italian Vogue by naming her as a designer to watch out for and including her in their list of “New Talents”.

After working in Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Preen by Thornton and Roksanda Illincic, she returned to her hometown, Hong Kong, and worked in I.T. and Lane Crawford, two large scale luxury fashion retailers. However, her ambition remains in the line of fashion design and consequently started her first collection in 2014. The brand takes from her roots and combines both graphics and fashion together to bring boldness and modernity to her first collection.

Her spring/summer 15 lookbook popped up in my inbox today.
Thankfully,  she invitated us to her gorgeous collection ,will be showing in both London and Paris Fashion Week. We can’t wait . !
