London based luxury brand Huishan Zhang was launched in 2011. As a Chinese-born, London-based designer, Huishan has mapped out his signature style, finding inspiration and direction through his national identity. Creating a luxurious brand where Eastern heritage meets Western influences, his collections create a romantic, sophisticated and ageless philosophy with feminine details, strong lines and directional design.
Huishan studied at Central Saint Martins College and graduated in 2010. During his studies Zhang was handpicked by Delphine Arnault to spend his 3rd year working in the House of Dior - Paris, working in leather goods and Dior's Haute Couture Atelier.
Since its inception, Huishan Zhang has grown significantly and now has 4 collections per year which are stocked worldwide at stores including Bergdorf Goodman, Selfridges, Joyce, Harvey Nichols, Bloomingdales, Moda Operandi amongst others.
The brand has a loyal VIP following, with recent appearances on Gwyneth Paltrow, Felicity Jones, Naomi Campbell, Natalie Dormer, Emma Roberts, Naomie Harris, Gigi Hadid, Saorise Ronan and Elizabeth Moss.
Huishan has been named as one of the BOF 500 People Shaping the Global Fashion Industry. In 2014, he was awarded the International Chinese Designer of the Year at the Elle China Style Awards. In 2015, he was a finalist for the LVMH Prize. Huishan was also a recipient of the 2016 BFC Fashion Trust and has been shortlisted for the BFC Vogue Fashion Fund in 2017 and 2018.
London's V&A Museum selected his couture ‘Dragon Dress' to become a permanent piece in the T.T. Tsui Gallery – making him the first Chinese contemporary fashion designer to receive this honour.
