China Design Competition: Wenxi Guan

Meet 21-year-old Wenxi Guan, a student at the Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology and participant in the China Student Design Competition.

What is the inspiration behind your designs?

I used the film “Rocky” as my inspiration, because it’s one of my favourite movies and because Stallone has been one of my favourite movie-stars since childhood. I incorporated boxing culture and boxing braid elements within my design of a sports shoe.

What type of leather did you use?

Waxed calf and charred leather.
