Fashion Scout’s Merit Award: Wen Pan’s Broken Beauty

Article for Fashion Scout during London Fashion Week SS20

Wen Pan was the winner of The Merit Award SS20, a globally acclaimed and fully sponsored show at Fashion Scout during London Fashion Week. Wen Pan is a London based womenswear label launched in 2018. The designer with the eponymous name graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2015.

Wen’s major inspiration in his creative process is the beauty of brokenness, traces of human presence, Chinese ancient recluses and the 1990s. The Brand uses raw fluidity and textured layers to portray a ‘Poetic Resistance’ that is found in the Chinese aesthetics. Wen Pan finds quietness in chaos and celebrates the attractiveness of imperfections.

The design journey always starts from human traces and ends with deconstructed pieces which translate brokenness into delicacy.

Before launching her namesake label, Wen interned and worked at renowned fashion houses including Christopher Kane, Alexander McQueen and UMA WANG. Wen is always obsessed with the beauty of brokenness, traces of human presence, Chinese ancient recluses and the 1990s.
