Cheongsam From Classics Anew

By Lau  /  February 3, 2016
Classics Anew is a Hong kong based fashion label founded by Janko Lam in 2014. A designer to watch,  Janko has already made a name in the Hong Kong fashion scene for her elegant reinterpretation of the cheongsam with recycled fabrics like denim, bringing the nostalgic Chinese era into the modern fashion world.
Before launching Classics Anew, Janko was a costume designer at TVB in 2008 and winner of the EcoChic Design Award in 2011. Merging her Chinese heritage, interest in traditional Chinese costumes and sustainability, she took formal lessons to learn the traditional craftsmanship of cheongsam and combined her new knowledge with modern techniques to promote sustainable fashion through her label, Classic Anew.
Classic Anew’s  latest collection modernises vintage pieces that’s both stylish and relevant for daily wear.  Janko uses different recycled fabrics like cotton and denim with a neutral earthly colour palette to create stylish qipao dresses and the qipao tops that are styled with long sheer skirts.
