Trips to New York always feel like a blur. This time of piercing cold air, hearty Xi’an noodles, old-friend-reunions, and of course, amazing fashion. I had the opportunity to see PH5’s fall 2018 presentation — it made the 6-hour flight and 0-degree weather worth it.





PH5’s presentation took place at Samsung 837, a relatively new space in NYC dedicated to combining fashion, art, sport, and technology. After dodging between swarms of people (and cameras), you can get an up-close look at the expertly crafted knitwear that PH5 is known for. I noticed they were playing old-school Chinese pop (Jay Chou’s ‘可爱女人’  anyone?), and later learned the playlist consisted of songs that factory employees listened to during work. The cutting-edge, chaotic setting suddenly felt a whole lot more real.



A highlight of the show is that a few models were “real women” — activists, nurses, sculptors, and alumnae of the Girls Who Code program. Founders Mijia Zhang and Wei Lin wanted to underline their commitment to female empowerment, as well as the science and engineering that underpins their work (programmers code various stitches based on Zhang’s vision, and a machine in their factory creates it from there.).


A big thank you to PH5 for having me again, and a huge congrats to Mijia and Wei on a refreshing, powerful collection. Until next time, NYC!
