Once… upon a time…in Taiwan
ONCE is a new kid’s wear brand based in Taiwan.
The designer Vicky Yuting Wang graduated in womenswear at Central Saint Martins in 2008, and, after 4 years of working in the luxury market, she started her own children’s wear label in 2013.
We met Vicky at KID in Paris and CIFF Kids in Copenhagen and what impressed us most, apart from her passion everything she does, is that she achieves her prints not by paint but by scissors.
She likes to create a unique design for each season, playing with colors and bringing a touch of humor into fashion, using high quality fabrics selected from Europe and Japan and then printed in Taiwan.
For the AW 2015, ONCE presented the “Beetles not beetles” collection. Cutting silhouettes, made with a lot of love and care finishing, were created by looking at beetle’s each parts and arranging small forms cut from sheets of paper.
We can’t wait to discover the following chapter of this story, coming up next season.
