All About Chet Lo
Given that he was not born in the city, the designer first arrived in 2015 for the Foundation program of his undergraduate degree at Central Saint Martins. The Asian-American designer will graduate from the institute’s BA Knitwear program in 2020. Chet started exploring knitwear and its limitless possibilities while studying in London. The designer debuted his first collection after working as an intern at Maison Margiela under John Galliano, the brand’s Creative Director and fellow Central Saint Martins alumni, and Proenza Schouler. His graduate collection, dubbed “Cindiaria’s Wife,” featured an unconventional fusion of Asian and Western elements.
Lo realized that people were pessimistic about the future even before the epidemic, so he resolved to try something different. After being heavily influenced by Japanese comics and the 1950s, he infused his passion for futurism into classic feminine forms.
