Established and designed by Sheng Yao Huang in autumn of 2015, “shen yao” is a Taipei based designer 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 all kinds of genders to create high-end, elegant and unique pieces with elaborate cutting and exquisite details.
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 VOGUE Taiwan, Harper’s Bazaar Taiwan, ELLE Taiwan, Men’s UNO, Fucking Young! Online, NOT JUST A LABELand Liberty Times…to name a few.
In 2017, he was honorably sponsored by “Asia Fashion Collection”, a fashion incubation project launch by Japanese company PARCO Co.,Ltd and Japanese design school VANTAN, to present S/S 18 runway show in Tokyo Fashion Week and F/W 18 runway show in New York Fashion Week.
You could find “shen yao”collection in indicator select shop in Taipei and Tokyo.
shen yao 為設計師聖堯在 2015 年秋天創立於台北的獨立品牌。
他堅信身體是張空白的畫布，任何美麗的事物都可以無所限制的在上面揮灑。因此，shen yao 不被傳統性別角色所框架，經常使用各種性別的元素和輪廓，以細膩的剪裁與精緻的細節，創作出高端、優雅且別具一格的服裝。
因其鮮明的品牌風格，創立不到一年便於聞名國際的巴黎時裝商展Who's Next、Tranoi和溫哥華時裝周展出，作品也曾刊登在VOGUE Taiwan、Harper's Bazaar、ELLE Taiwan、Men’s UNO、Fucking Young! Online 、NOT JUST A LABEL、自由時報等國內外媒體。
2017年更受到日本PARCO百貨與VANTAN設計學校共同發起的時尚孵育計畫Asia Fashion Collection贊助，於2018春夏的東京時裝週及2018秋冬的紐約時裝週發表時裝秀。
