Chenghui Zhang is a New York-based designer. Born in Italy, Zhang grew up in China, before moving to New York to study fashion design at Parsons University, where she was awarded the esteemed CDFA sponsorship prior to her fourth year of study at Parsons.
For Zhang, narration is the main drive behind her design philosophy, using the tool of storytelling. Her thesis collection recreated a memoir of her grandmother by using fabric that her grandmother had bought in the eighties to trace the development and globalisation of China in the past thirty years. Her industry experience includes interning for designers like Ralph Lauren and 3.1 Phillip Lim.
