FIZIWOO Spring/Summer 2019 – Let Hundred Flowers Bloom
FIZIWOO Spring/Summer 2019 collection takes inspiration from the Hundred Flowers Campaign that occurred during the Mao era in China. Chairman Mao Zedong launched a campaign that encouraged citizens to speak about their government, giving the people of Republic of China the freedom of speech. However, the campaign received a great backlash from the public, resulting in the execution of many lives. Each and every one of the people who fought in the campaign forms the “Hundred Flowers”. FIZIWOO Spring/Summer 2019 is launched as a tribute collection; every single flower and blossom embroidered on the looks represents the men and women who have fallen.
While different motif laces are used in various different notes ranging from pastel blue to vibrant emerald green, different cuttings of tulle skirt and pants are paired with them fabulously. In this way FIZIWOO has challenged itself and successfully created a whole new signature silhouette not commonly associated with the brand by introducing a new side to FIZIWOO yet retaining its signature form.
The collection is finished with embellishment crafted entirely by hand. Various renditions of flowers presented on each of the pieces in the collection represent as offerings to the souls who have fallen in the movement. Individual petals are cut out of various fabrics from Organza Silk, Chiffon Silk, and Tulle. The petals are then arranged skillfully to form flowers which were individually hand-dyed.
