Fashion brand SARAWONG presented their Spring Summer 2022 Collection, that reinterprets the Miao culture in a modern and romantic way, on September 25th, during the recently finished Milan Fashion Week. The collection explores Miao’s traditional art form, known for its diverse colors and iconic garments. The designer fuses modern craftsmanship with traditional skills to create bold pieces: Miao’s classical clothes are mixed with popular colors such as pink, blue, green and purple, while different fabrics are combined and stitched together.
“As the DNA of the brand wants, the designer unites retro and modernity creating the perfect and unique fusion of style, textile, prints and colors such as pink and white polka dots, delicate pastel flowers mixed with eccentric colors and long dresses made with tulle and decorated with other part of clothes. From the 19th to the 20th century, European missionaries entered the Miao area of northeastern Yunnan affecting the traditional light and textile industries. Since then, Miao people combine it with their own culture, in this way the costumes were embellished with small ornaments such as inlaid glass beads, plastic beads and natural shells. The Spring/Summer 2022 collection merges traditional weaving technology with modern materials that are used for the design of accessories, such as colorful handbags, bundled up shoes and the buttons applied in a gold conch shape, expressing a balance of beauty, courage, contrast and revolution.” – from SARAWONG
