Graham Fan is an incredible young talent who graduated Central Saint Martin's just this year. Born in Canada of Chinese heritage, the designer drew from both Eastern and Western traditions for his debut collection, "The Cassati's."
In bold sapphire and ethereal white, the collection imagines the designer's muse - eccentric Italian heiress Marchessa Casati - as a visitor to China in the early 20th century. Fan combines traditional Qing dynasty costumes with Casati's European couture to stunning effect, updating the pieces with a heavy dose of beading, leather, suede and even laser-cut plastics. The photography isn't half bad either. Click through for more.
