Shuting Qiu graduated with an MA and BA in Fashion from the Royal Academy in Antwerp.

The brand conveys a signature sense of femininity that features a “modern romantic” woman, powerful and independent while maintaining her soft identity. The SHUTING QIU woman dares to express herself with asymmetry and experimentation in silhouettes, often resulting in rich contrasting colors of silk jacquards, intricate embroideries, and juxtapositions of linear and floral prints.

Currently based in Shanghai, the Chinese-born designer constantly finds inspiration in art, literature, cinema and travel. Shuting’s creations pay homage to the free, romantic and neurotic spirit of heroines such as Virginia Woolf and Pina Bausch.

Shuting Qiu won VFiles Runway 10, was a finalist for the inaugural BoF China Prize 2019, won the Special Prize at the BIG Design Award Japan, was a finalist of the H&M Design Award 2020, was selected within the Arise Fashion Week international new talents and invited by Vogue Talents to join the World of Vogue Talents and most recently was shortlisted for the LVMH Prize 2021.

Shuting Qiu’s collections customarily applaud daring romanticism and are often an invitation to explore the world of a chromatic artist. Her Spring/Summer 2023 Collection sifts into the colorful and technical works of Bernard Frize.

Bernard Frize is a French painter with a renowned reputation as both formally consistent and technically innovative. With work that is highly process-oriented, often requiring unconventional tools and materials, he unites aspects of minimalism, abstract expressionism, and color field painting, producing experimental canvases that often feature vivid, interlocking forms. Frize approaches his paintings with strict, near-mechanical processes and palettes; the artist is interested in the intersection of rigid systems and intrusions of chance.

SHUTING QIU dares with asymmetry and experimentation in silhouettes, a rigorous and original approach to fabrics, intricate embroideries, and juxtapositions of linear and floral prints. Her play on textures and prints, mixing simplicity with complexity, echoes the work discipline of the French artist. Frize's experimentation on lines - definition and abstract (with their complexity of color, facture, width, and intersection) - deeply shaped the inception of the SHUTING QIU Spring/Summer 2023 Collection.

The embroideries and fabric applications closely reference Frize’s abstract and blurred lines. Fringes, a novelty for SHUTING QIU, allow reproduction of the irregular mix of wide brushstrokes with precise and rigid lines in the painter’s work, while creating layers of dimensional depth to her iconic striped patterns.
