Chen's edgy designs and intricate patterns have a futuristic feel that unites science and style. His latest creations feature military shapes, party gowns, black-on-black paneling, and lots of leather.
At only 24 years old, the young designer already has a New York Fashion Week show, Westfield San Francisco Centre pop-up shop, and full e-boutique under his belt. And with his talent, that's just the beginning.
