Zhexuan Katherine Hu



Zhexuan believes in true intimacy between the garment and the wearer. With a need to connect to women through a celebration of unwavering femininity, she illuminates vulnerability and authenticity as key components of her design ethos. The narrative she derived from her scholarly research is the heart of her design-from cinematography, to performance art, analog photography, and personal film work. Through a close-to-psychotic obsession with creating garments that are perfectly sewn inside and out, she has grown to cherish all the hardship that earns a glimpse of elegance within the finished product. Her meticulous attention to materials, fit, and fabrication, synchronizes with each realized garment, creating a sanctuary that redefines conventionally marketed sexuality. Her aesthetic philosophy views fashion as a vehicle of expression, relentlessly striving for her vision of beauty and humanity.
