Discover HUI Spring Summer 2022 Collection, that explores the essence of femininity, presented on September 26th, during the recently finished Milan Fashion Week. The collection reinterprets Nü shu – a unique syllabic script, made and used by the women of the Yao people. With this season’s collection designer Huizhou Zhao celebrates dynamism of femininity, and fuses Chinese traditional embroideries with European modern details.
“Huizhou Zhao, in her new collection, reinterprets Nü shu, a unique syllabic script derived from Chinese characters, developed and used by the women of the Yao people, who reside Hunan province. This writing, exclusively used by women, allowed the women of the Yao ethnic group to communicate with each other in secret. It succeeded in essence in emancipating them, since at the time they did not have the opportunity to receive an education. This traditional writing was a true act of female liberation and affirmation. The choice to interpret the Nü shu script translates into a decorative graphic aspect in the collection that reflects the celebration of the importance of this practice, in line with the values of the Foundation.” – from HUI
