中文簡介
APUJAN

APUJAN is a fashion brand founded by London-based fashion designer Apu Jan. After graduating from the Royal College of Art, UK; Apu Jan has been showcasing his designs at the London Fashion week consecutively starting from 2013 Autumn/Winter. His designs are renowned for integrating fiction-inspired designs, unique knitwear techniques, and themes inspired by fantasy, history, literature and a fusion of East and West. The literary themes enable the clothes to appear both real and surreal, while the precise and intricate knitting skills allow every item to accentuate the wearer’s unique femininity. The juxtaposition of traditional and oriental elements with a contemporary twist, and the interweaving of bold and casual elements are at the heart of APUJAN’s unique style, and have become the hallmarks of the APUJAN label.
