Han Chong

DESIGNER TO WATCH

Han Chong is a BA Graduate of Womenswear from Central Saint Martins in London. After graduating, little did he know that in October of 2013, 17 dresses would change his life. His contemporary luxury label, Self-Portrait, has become one of the fastest growing emerging brands and there doesn't seem to be any slowing down. Self-Portrait is known for taking an already existing design and reinventing it so people view the design in a new way. From his best-selling Azalea dress to the Mia dress that the Duchess of Cambridge wore to an event, Self-Portrait is the" go to" for feminine and flattering dresses at an affordable price. He believes, "It is possible not to have to sacrifice the quality and details within the products if you find ways to make fabrication more cost-efficient." Therefore, he designs for the modern woman who wants to wear clothes that make them feel they could achieve anything.

In 2016, Self-Portrait was nominated by the British Fashion Council for the British Emerging Talent Award and in 2018 opened his first store in Mayfair where you can see his current Spring/Summer 2019 Collection. You will find streamlined silhouettes, off-the-shoulder and single-sleeve designs, midi-dresses that are lined with Lurex striped knits, jumpsuits, and even gowns. If you haven't heard of Self-Portrait before now consider yourself informed as they are one of the "it" emerging brands.
