Fengyi Tan is a Chinese fashion designer and graduate of the Royal College of Art, London. SS19 collections name is “Body in emotion”.Fengyi Tan was selected from a shortlist of 50 emerging designers by a panel of industry experts which this season had the likes of Martyn Roberts Fashion Scout’s founder and director , Hilary Alexander Obe, Craig Spellar, and Sebekah Roy.

Fengyi Tan is a womenswear brand based in London and Shanghai. Fengyi Tan’s collections capture the moment of movement with contemporary dance choreography. This collection continues with the feminine sportive and elegant style that Fengyi Tan has had in previous seasons.

Flexibility, transparency and texture help to create a layer that intertwines the real and the virtual. Fengyi Tan tries to create unique aesthetic for modern and independent women. Fengyi tries to make understand her art by the movement in work.

One of my favourites pieces was the red jumper, the models all had a sort of mask that matched what they were wearing.  The models hair styles were also all different from each other.

For SS19 Fengyi collaborated with Hexagon Collective and they held their first performance in London. The team will be made up by architect Lin Tuo, artist Beibei Wang, and the choreographer Gala Moody.

Not only did the presentation have movement it also had live music to add to it. The music changed the atmosphere of the presentation, as every movement had a different sound.
