The SHAO YEN label was founded in 2010 by Taiwanese-born Central Saint Martins trained designer Shao Yen Chen. After a decade of focus on womenswear, the label now produces seasonless, genderless clothing, accessories and homeware with the same attention to detail and quality. Often inspired by nature and the human body, our designs incorporate practicality with unconventional materials and structures, hoping to inject some experimental spirit and playfulness into everyday life. Besides London and Paris fashion weeks, SHAO YEN’s pieces have been on show at international venues, including Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam; La Cité de la dentelle et de la mode, Calais; National Palace Museum, Taiwan; Lane Crawford Beijing, and Selfridges London. Designer Shao Yen Chen also gained wider recognition for collaborating with celebrities and artists such as Björk, Shu Qi, Jolin Tsai, contemporary calligrapher Yang-tze Tong and the Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan.
