Please welcome Jianhui Yan to the Columbia Climate School for an in person presentation.
From his first piece, made from broken vintage items found at London’s Portobello Market, Jianhui has been creating versatile sustainable fashion from recycled and upcycled materials for almost two decades.
His hand crafted wearable art is loved not only by style icons such as Iris Apfel and celebrities like Lily Tomlin, Dame Prue Leith but also prestigious art museums such as MoMa, the Museum of Art and Design in NYC and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.
Sustainability is not a trend, but a mission to use resources well and help make our planet greener. This belief is central to everything he does, with his recycled leather collection winning a sustainability award at the NY Now show and his latest ‘Aqua’ collection being made entirely by hand from recycled plastic bottles.
And above all, his designs are flamboyant, playful and simply JUST BEAUTIFUL.
Please join us in welcoming Jianhui to the Columbia’s Climate School!
