BoF China Prize in partnership with Yu Holdings
BoF’s fashion award launched in 2018 to discover and support emerging Chinese designers. The winner receives a cash prize of US$100,000, the opportunity to showcase their collection as part of the official schedule for London Fashion Week, and mentorship from the extensive global BoF community of fashion industry professionals.
Shenzhen-born Caroline Hu graduated with a BA in womenswear from Central Saint Martins in London and an MFA in fashion design and society from Parsons School of Design in New York. After gaining experience in the ateliers of Tory Burch, Alexander Wang and Jason Wu, she launched her own label in 2018 and was shortlisted for the LVMH Prize for her crafted demi-couture dresses that evoke a dreamy, languorous romanticism and demonstrate a commitment to fine craftsmanship.
Since winning the BoF China Prize in March, Caroline has been putting into practice the advice she received from the prize jurors, constantly liaising with her manufacturers and suppliers and focusing on refining her collection. “They gave me the confidence to define what commerciality means to me,” she says. “I think that commerciality isn’t objective, and it doesn’t have to have a sleeve or a collar. Art can be commercial, too.”
Tickets are non-transferrable and are only valid for BoF Professional members. Tickets purchased by those outside of the BoF Professional community will be void and refunded.
