Simon Gao

One of China's new generation of young designers, this Beijing breakout star will make his debut at London Fashion Week next season.

During his childhood Simon Gao’s mother regimented his wardrobe – so much so that it took a while for the young designer to find his own sense of style. But find it he did and now his clothes are at the forefront of China’s pioneering fashion scene. Gao made headlines at the Mercedez-Benz China Fashion Week with his Han-inspired collection, and earlier this year he shook up the catwalk at Paris Fashion Week when he collaborated with Galeries Lafayette.
