Wei Bai, M.F.A. Fashion Design, grew up in Chongqing, China. Having completed a B.F.A. in Fine Arts and Graphic and Web Design, Wei worked as a graphic designer before undertaking her graduate degree in Fashion Design. Her Spring 2015 collection is a mix of causal sportswear and neo-Edwardian Teddy Boy style that became popular in the 1950’s in England. Garments are constructed in one piece, although many give the illusion that they are separates.
