This year “Fashion In Taipei + ELLE Next Talent” was organized by ELLE Taiwan and Taipei City Office of Commerce to integrate both parties’ source and to promote the up-and-coming fashion talents from Taiwan. The top 10 designers whose ages are from 21 to 61 years old showcased 10 different attitudes in style. Among them, the winner Fabrizio Wang stood out with his men’s voyage collection. “Seize the moment, enjoy life and surpass my limits” is his attitude and he brought a relaxing summer vocation vibe to his runway show. The highlight was the simple and neat casual detachable windbreaker which can be converted into a hidden cross-body bag for trendy travelers. This key piece echoed the attitude of enjoying the easy yet fashionable life. The designer also won several local and international fashion design awards, including the 3rd Prize of 2015 Mercedes Benz China Fashion Week – International Menswear Competition. In Sep., 2015, he will go to Italy to finish his master’s degree and pursuit his dream in the kingdom of fashion.
