    Female Mustache


    A/W 2017 New York based ready to wear designer, Snow Xue Gao, founded her eponymous brand in 2016 immediately following her debut spring/summer 2017 show at Parsons New School of Art and Design where she received a Masters of Fashion.


    Snow’s intricately draped and tailored line breaks away from conventional definitions of masculine and feminine. For A/W' 17 Snow continues her exploration of exaggerated proportions, asymmetrical finishes and contrasting textures. Fine Italian wool plaids and jacquards are tucked and twisted with floral silk prints to create a trompe l'oeil illusion - a blazer transforms into a skirt; wool suiting is inlayed with traditional Chinese dress—conceptually merging her Asian heritage and Western culture.
