Tsang Fan Yu

The EcoChic Design Award 2015/16 Finalist


Fan Yu is currently studying Fashion Design at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and he has a Social Sciences degree from City University of Hong Kong. In 2015, he won the Best Accessories Design Award in the Hong Kong Young Fashion Designers’ Contest.

For his collection, Fan Yu was inspired by the Zen philosophy of finding a harmonious balance between nature and human life. He combined zero-waste and up-cycling design techniques using surplus textiles, including organic hemp blends and organic pineapple textiles, sourced from factories in Hong Kong, Mainland China and the Philippines.

I believe in the Zen philosophy and so I respect the balance between natural and human lives. I appreciate an aesthetic that accepts and celebrates imperfection. - Tsang Fan Yu
