For Spring 2020, designer Eva Xu, a graduate of the Art Institute of Chicago, presented a collection that can be summed up with one simple word: elegance. Each ensemble seemed to emerge to walk the runway with an air of simplicity that can only come from a place of full self-confidence rarely seen on the runway. Each of these looks was better than the next & seemed to build upon one another to a fitting finale.
Xu honed her skills following design school with stints at Michael Kors & Ralph Lauren before beginning All Comes From nothing (ACFN) in 2014. In her own words, Xu seek to allow the individual wearers’ inner identities to shine when she wears ACFN. These pieces, while being neither basic nor subtle, still allow the wearer to be front & center. This is the very definition of sportswear & ultimately the key to proper commercial success. With her talent in the guiding hands of China’s ICY Global Designer Platform program, Eva Xu is well on her way!
