Watch: ORDRE Meets I-AM-CHEN

I-AM-CHEN designer Chen reflects on the International Woolmark Prize, experimenting with knitwear and the rapid rise of her one-year-old label.

Just one year in, eponymous designer Chen from I-AM-CHEN speaks to ORDRE fashion director Kirsten Lock about her label's quick rise, which has included winning the Fashion Scout Merit Award at London Fashion Week this year.

Having participated in the 2018 International Woolmark Prize, Chen reflects on the experience which allowed her to experiment with knitwear — using elastic yarns to create garments that don't look like typical knitwear.

After studying fashion in Shanghai, New York and London, it comes as no surprise that Chen's inspirations for SS'19 also come from all around the world: namechecking the Finnish natural landscape as a starting point for her bright colour palette. Watch below as she walks ORDRE through her collection.
