With China very much on the radar of the fashion scene for 2016, I am delighted to introduce a new handbag talent, which is made with the softest calf leather and traditional embroidery.
Dream’s Code is a label founded by London College of Fashion graduate, Youmeng Liu. Growing up Southern China, she became fascinated with the local, traditional skill from a young age, and has taken on this practice in her designs.
Historically the craft dates back to the Tang Dynasty, as a was a way of showcasing the craft of needlework by mimicking the natural surroundings. Exaggerated and bold, the scenes of mythical animals, insects, fish, butterflies, birds and flowers, that for centuries, have been adopted by Youngmeng and brought slap bang to the modern day.
Fusing her own spiritual odes to her rich ancestory, she has transformed abstract designs, in to wearable art in the form of practical bags, complete in a range of styles made from top quality British and Italian leathers.
You can see more on her website, and even choose your own design. With everything from purses to clutches to backpacks, there is something authentic and original to tempt all!
