: Cacharel new designers Ling Liu + Dawei Sun :

Cacharel attempts to revamp the brand with French-educated Chinese design partners Ling Liu and Dawei Sun. they met while studying at Paris fashion school L’Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture and founded Belle Ninon together in 2009. before their partnership, Liu worked under Nicolas Ghesquière at Stefano Pilati at YSL in both womenswear and menswear; while Sun worked at Balenciaga, and later with John Galliano for over five years. their brand Belle Ninon is a slightly masculine appearance, with soft wools and silks in structured yet flattering forms, clearly inspired by their past experiences with the older couturiers – reinterpreted into a unique and modern silhouette. this year, they have received recognition from winning the jury prize at the 2011 Elle France New Talent Fashion Awards, leading them to the Cacharel position, where they will now be joint artistic directors for all the brand’s lines, including womenswear, childrenswear, menswear and accessories. they will begin their work with the spring 2012 collection, to be shown at Paris Fashion Week in October.
