After battling our way through the adoring crowds at the Shao Yen installation at Freemason’s Hall, Vauxhall Fashion Scout managed to appreciate for ourselves the effortless beauty that exuded from her work.  Emanating modernism and a contemporarily simple aesthetic, Shao Yen’s collection was the perfect antidote to the bustling space. 
In electric hues of blue and orange, the collection was as dramatic as it was minimalist.  Introducing ‘street’ twists, such as caps, to high fashion garments, Shao Yen succeeded in creating a collection that was both classically skillful and excitingly fresh.
