·1 min read

Following its team-up with Korean brand ADERERROR, Zara has now tapped emerging designer Susan Fang to celebrate Lunar New Year.

For those unfamiliar, Fang is a Central Saint Martins graduate who began her eponymous label with glass bead accessories handmade by her and her family in China. For her Fall/Winter 2021 season she spotlighted the local residents of Inner Mongolia, and showcased a range of colorful tulle dresses for her Spring/Summer 2022 "AIR" runway.

For her first-ever fast fashion crossover, the designer takes inspiration from family, love and heritage. "This collaboration with Zara is to communicate with the memories of the past in my heart, connecting the most timeless childhood memories and love like a string of beads connect the memories of mine and my mothers’ with the time and space of the past," she shares in a press release. Spanning 22 items for women, men and children, the collection features tulle dresses, shirts, sweatshirts, knitwear and more highlighted with beaded details. Similar motifs are found on the accessories range, which includes small bags in red and green color palettes.
