Qi Zhou is an Engineer by training. Originally a Shanghai native and current American-citizen for past 30 years, Qi’s designs display her fondness and pays homage to both her eastern and western influences.
Her early inspirations are attributable to a nomadic childhood, one that exposed her to the vibrant range of China’s diverse and colorful culture. Qi has long aspired to integrate her distinct Chinese background with influences from her American home into a singular aesthetic showcase. She hopes to share her passion for fashion design and illustrious journey for the communities. “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street; fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” “Coco” Chanel once said. Qi hopes that her designs reflect our increasingly global society’s much-needed unification of eastern and western visionaries, philosophies, and artistic expressions.
