is space the place?

Young Chinese designer Ge Bai, MA womenswear
fashion graduate from London's Royal College of Art
specialized in knitwear, conveyed a subtle Sci Fi
character to this year's graduate collections: models
with rose-shaped goggles on walked the runway
wearing well proportioned knitted outfits in 
Mondrianesque color combinations of black and 
white with neon yellow and pastel pink.

An original color blocking tale with gripping silhouettes
and cuts; gorgeous knitted coats and combos subtly
referencing the 1960s in which 3-D printing techniques
and bright colored silicone flowers fastened on knitted
lace are paired with black piping and huge floral motifs
in what seems to be the first step of a conscious style.

So it's small wonder that Ge Bai has been selected by
public vote as one the 50 semifinalists of the MUUSE
x VOGUE Talents - Young Vision Award whose winner
will be invited to design a capsule collection under the
MUUSE label and will appear in a feature story on Hurry up, you can cast your vote until noon
GMT tomorrow, July 11, to help pick out the 'people's
choice' award winner. Both the Grand Prize and the
online readers' poll winners will be announced 
in August during Copenhagen fashion week.

Best of luck to Ge Bai and all her young fellows!
