Jamie Wei Huang is a contemporary womenswear label which combines conceptual ideas with modern silhouette. The label is founded by Jamie Wei Huang after graduating from Fashion Design Womenswear at Central Saint Martins Art and Design College in London. The start of the label is initiated when her collection was selected as the Top 5 finalists for the international fashion competition Designer for Tomorrow awards. Being the Top 5 finalist, Jamie was personally mentored by Stella McCartney and gained full sponsorship for her 2014 Spring Summer catwalk at the Mercedes Benz Berlin Fashion Week 2013. Shortly after that, she was awarded UKFT’s TAP award enabling her to show her collection at WHITE Milano showroom and the renown Tranoi showroom in Paris. During her studies, she has worked in high-end fashion houses such as Alexander McQueen and Christopher Kane and she is also hired as one of the costume designer and tailor for the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympics’s closing ceremony. Jamie has also been active in the arts industry. In 2009, she was selected as artistic representative for the Societe Nationale Des Beaux at Louve, won Medaille de Bronze at Le Salon 2012 Societe Des Artistes Francais and was the finalist of the Taiwan National Large-sized oil Paintings Competition. Her background became her foundation in developing contemporary fashion and concept building, and also appearing in her signature elements in design details and silhouette.

The label is based on the principle of bringing out the character in contemporary women. The ideas of fashion is the language of exploration the inner self by materials and silhouette, developing the concept of garments but refine it in cutting and details. The essential components of the label is simplistic with clean refined outline, masculine in a way into details. The label Jamie Wei Huang is to create the idea of the present women herself by developing new ideas of materials and cutting to represent the way of exploring modern women’s character using their own language. Jamie Wei Huang’s collection is based on the development of Op Art – an art form that plays with geometric forms and irritating effects. And as she comes from an art background, she uses this knowledge in her collections. To Jamie, there is no difference between fashion and art. That is why she sees fashion as traditional sculpturing and why she creates three dimensional.

Starting with the idea of Op Art, Jamie began to work with dots and metallic fabrics combined with rounded, geometric forms. “I was searching for something futuristic that is very simple at the same time. And I wanted to create something that is in a way masculine but without too much volume”, she explains the idea behind the aesthetic of her collection. The two essential components of the creations are the materials and the pattern cutting, while Jamie would say that her colour palette is more restrained than flashy, with a lot of white as a basis. But definitely there are exceptions in red, orange and blue. As for the material, the designer lets them speak for themselves: Ceramic and glass – two traditional ancient materials that have existed already for thousands of years. They come as small, coloured dots and squares neatly embellished onto the clothes mostly made of silk. Together, the three dimensional material and the forms are the perfect adaption of the Op Art-theme. They do cause optical effects on the human eye. But the traditional material is furthermore the contrast to the bespoke futurism in the collection, an interaction of both. The cutting on the other hand is simpler but refined, which does not make the collection commercial but nevertheless wearable. The accurate design is in the tailored pieces and sharp cuttings.

Un marchio womenswear contemporary che combina idee concettuali con silhouette moderne. L’etichetta, fondata da Jamie Wei Huang dopo il diploma in Fashion Design alla Saint Martins di Londra, nasce quando la designer viene selezionata tra i 5 finalisti di Designer for Tomorrow e le viene data la possibilità di presentare la sua prima S/S 2014 alla Mercedes Benz Berlin Fashion Week 2013.
La collezione è incentrata sull’Op art: per Jamie non c’è differenza tra moda e arte, motivo per il quale vede la moda come una forma di scultura che raggiunge le tre dimensioni. Partendo dall’Op Art, Jamie comincia a lavorare con dots e tessuti metallici sposati a forme arrotondate e geometriche.

La palette per la collezione S/S 2014 è più sobria che sgargiante, giocata su un importante base di bianchi con elementi rossi, arancio e blu. I materiali invece parlano da sé: ceramica e vetro appaiono in piccoli dots e quadrati colorati che animano ordinatamente i capi in seta.

Dal 21 al 23 settembre ha esordito al Basement di WHITE Jamie Wei Huang, con una collezione che gioca con elementi optical su capi sartoriali.

Jamie Wei Huang est une Taïwanaise venue explorer la capitale londonienne, attirée par ses brillantes écoles d’art et de mode. Petite, Jamie baigne déjà dans une atmosphère artistique. « Ma mère peint des masques pour l’Opéra Chinois, elle m’a beaucoup encouragée à dessiner et à cultiver l’art de manière générale ». C’est tout naturellement que la petite Jamie voulait tout d’abord devenir peintre. Eduquée par sa mère dans une grande liberté, Jamie est indépendante et très vite, son goût de l’aventure et de la découverte la propulse en Europe. Jamie débarque à Londres et ne passe pas par quatre chemins. Elle choisit la Central Saint Martins pour y suivre une première formation de sculpture et beaux-arts, puis elle enchaîne avec le cursus de Fashion Design de la même école. Dès lors, l’influence de la sculpture et de l’art se ressent dans ses créations. Pour elle, la mode n’est pas bien différente de la sculpture, seuls les outils et les matériaux varient. La créatrice n’envisage pas l’un sans l’autre. « C’est toujours agréable de travailler sur mes projets. Je prends énormément de plaisir à créer et imaginer. A part la mode, il y a l’art et le design, c’est tout. C’est tout ce que j’aime. »

One look at Jamie Wei Huang’s SS14 collection and one is transfixed into a world of modern apparel for women that’s bold, confident and sensual at the same time. The young designer who studied at Central Saint Martins and graduated with a BA degree in Fine Art hails from Taiwan. She’s already a rising start in the fashion industry taking part in Designers for Tomorrow with Stella McCartney as a patron. From her newest collection, one immediately notices the use of unconventional materials for clothing such as ceramics and glass – both known for being delicate but with a hard touch – these add pops of colors to garments mostly comprised of white silks. Jamie Wei Huang besides being a fashion designer is also an artist at heart, so the op-art theme with the placement of the glass and ceramics against the sheer silks is apparent in her current collection. In her own words which sums up the collection quite nicely, ““I was searching for something futuristic that is very simple at the same time. And I wanted to create something that is in a way masculine but without too much volume”.

黃薇Jamie Wei Huang是台灣人,她在中國出生、在台灣長大,現在住在倫敦。年底即將畢業於英國一所著名的藝術與設計學院—中央聖馬丁藝術與設計學院(Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design 簡稱中央聖馬丁),主修是女裝設計。她在訪問中提到,中央聖馬丁課業繁重而且都很難,不過在專業上提供最好的培訓,而且在性格和思維上塑造學生,這也使得她在此次比賽中脫穎而出,論到設計細節,她說:「這個系列建立在視覺藝術和幾何圖案上,用不同材質特點再利用製作出的新輪廓。整個製作過程很困難,因為我一直堅持用玻璃、陶瓷這些材料。我相信這樣的材質會有呈現一種與眾不同效果,所以拒絕替換成任何塑料或是更輕質的材料。這個系列經過了很多次的試驗,嘗試了各種可能性以達到我們期望的效果,並把玻璃和陶瓷與絲綢和硬紗服飾搭配起來。要達到最佳效果在技術上很難施行,但最後我們還是獲得了很大的成功!

Während ich in Berlin war, legte mir eine nette Bekannte einen Zeitungsartikel vor. Ok, einen Screenshot vom iPad. Es ging um die Mode der Designerin Jamie Wei Huang aus London. Nun mag der eine oder andere Blog-Leser denken ich wäre voll uns ganz in der Modewelt abgetaucht. Tatsächlich sehe ich hier eine tolle Kombination aus Mode und Hightech. Es gibt die verrücktesten technischen Geräte um sein Gesicht vor einer automatischen Gesichtserkennung zu schützen. Ich denke da an die klobige Brille vom japanischen Professor Isao Echizen. Wobei in dem Artikel auf golem.de ja zu lesen war, das es die Anfrage gibt eine Brille mit einer besonderen Folie zu beschichten.
