Established and designed by Sheng Yao Huang in autumn of 2015, shen yao is a Taipei based menswear label.
He believes that as human body is a blank canvas, it’s possible for anything beautiful to be liberally painted on it. Therefore, not confined by traditional gender roles, Shen Yao often borrows elements and silhouettes from womenswear to create high-end, elegant and unique pieces with elaborate cutting and exquisite details. With the works of this label, he also hopes to bring different voice to the single and flat imagination towards “male image” shaped by the society.
Due to his distinctive style, less than one year since the label was established, he has showcased collections at world-famous Paris Fashion Trade Show, “Who’s Next” and “Tranoi”, as well as Vancouver Fashion Week. His works were also featured in media from home and abroad, such as ELLE Taiwan, NOT JUST A LABEL, and Liberty Times.
