Groundbreaking designer Robert Wun’s rise to global fame has been swift and spectacular

Profile


Fashion designer Robert Wun celebrates powerful women in his fantastical, unabashedly escapist collections that channel influences from science fiction and nature into a constantly surprising, highly conceptual aesthetic. Wun was born and raised in Hong Kong and his eponymous label is based in London, where he moved to study aged 16. He launched the company in 2014 after his graduate collection was picked up by coveted retailer Joyce.

In 2016, he became part of the On|Off showcase of emerging designers at London Fashion Week, and was also nominated for the International Woolmark Prize. Describing feminism as central to his work, he has also made it his mission to challenge stereotyping, racism, and sexism in the fashion industry head on. Soon after launching his label, his work became a celebrity favourite and has been seen on the likes of Cardi B, Céline Dion and Solange.
