Jamie Wei Huang is a contemporary womenswear label, founded by Jamie Wei Huang after graduating from Fashion Design Womenswear at Central Saint Martins College in London. Continuing Jamie Wei Huang's strong belief in seeking self- expression through fabrication and materials Jamie Wei Huang stays true to her signature style of strong elongated silhouettes, constructed with careful juxtaposition of fabrics to cater to the contemporary individuals.

Spring Summer 2017 collection is about looking back to periods of our life, being an individual in a society, in a work group, a student, a daughter, an office worker, and the natural rules that are found in every society. SS17 picks up on the subconscious rebellion each individual expresses under those guidelines.The battle between conforming to a stereotype and being recongnised, such as wanting to wear uniform but then distorting it, folding up hems at uniform shirt rather than tucking it in, sports class sweatshirt mixed with suits, graffitied love song lyrics written on school bags ....The strictness has brought up a certain appearance that was different from the trend but recongised by the group.

It was developed from the rules but became an odd way of coolness and certain identity.

The collection is based on clean outlines distorted with the elements such as leather cord through shirt, embroidering on garment with the actual code and number of the pieces and using the industry professional note, from pattern cutting, sampling, making to reveal the reality of the role of the pieces prior existance.

SS17 continues with Jamie Wei Huang’s unique motif of metal trimming and sport luxe fabrications which play a key part in the brand signature. Spring Summer 2017 is examining the contrast of traditoinal identifiction with society expectation in every role that we play to try recreate and bring back the time of the innerself.
