When former model Grace Choi launched her cheongsam fashion label, Yi-ming, her aim was to bring together traditional Chinese fashion with modern sensibilities.
As a next step, Yi-ming has launched its first-ever knitwear cheongsam collection called ‘Peach Blossom ‧ Haze’, in collaboration with The Woolmark Company.
The collection was recently displayed at the Knitwear Symphony 2017 hosted by Hong Kong Knitwear Innovation and Design Society, where famous model, Coco Chiang, and celebrity, Corinna Chamberlain walked the ramp for Yi-ming.
Featuring cheongsams with sharp silhouettes in grey, peach and aqua green, the collection was a perfect example of functional winter-wear with a hint of glamour.
The comfort factor is heightened by the use of the widely acclaimed Australian Merino wool. Merino wool is hailed as a versatile, multifunctional material because of its natural features, such as breathability, moisture management, elasticity and resistance to odour.
Talking about the collaboration with The Woolwork Company, Grace Choi says, “Choosing knitwear merino wool on cheongsam design is widely appreciated, and no longer limit to crowd with model figures to wear.”
