Hong Kong designer Lu Shengqian scooped up this year’s Asahi Kasei Chinese Fashion Designer Creativity Award, a recognition given as part of the ongoing Spring/Summer 2014 edition of Mercedes-Benz China Fashion Week.
The young talent was honored with the covetable trophy for his nature and architecture themed collection, showcased at the Chinese fashion event.
The winning range, which was inspired from Bing Ba shell fibres, included an array of simple and comfortable pieces featuring three-dimensional architectural details. 
Merged and layered with different fabrics, the fuss-free ensembles were accentuated with flat pleats, flowery patterns and smart draping, resulting in stereoscopic effects.
While receiving the award, Lu Shengqian said, “The development and use of fabric is our most important part during the fashion design, and it is the primary consideration. Especially the fabric texture, color, pattern and comfort have a great influence on the final design.”
Lu Shengqian was the second Hong Kong-based recipient of the title ever since the country’s contestants were included in the competition in 2012.
Co-sponsored by the China Fashion Week Organization Committee, Asahi Kasei Corporation and Asahi Kasei Textile Corporation, the award was previously won by the likes of Wang Yutao for his designs based on old Beijing scenery, Shi Jie for calligraphy-infused apparels and Liu Wei for showcasing ink paintings inspired collection.
