Born in Hong Kong and spending most of his formation time there, Ryan went to a university in London.

Young and fresh, Yirantian recently graduated at the London College Of Fashion graduate in 2012 and then went back again to study for her Masters. Her S/S 2012 collection is titled ‘UN-’ (Unconventional combinations), a very radical approach that aims to create anything unconventional into reality. Can’t wait to see her works after her degree!
Being the winner of the prestigious FASHION FRINGE Award 2012 has already paved the way for Haizhen Wang.
