>> I was waiting out on posting on Chau Har Lee just because I was thinking that once her own domain name was set up, perhaps her own proper line is being established and that she won't JUST be remembered for her structural RCA graduate collection. Her graduate collection along with a few new styles were on display before the Fashion East show started down in the vaults at Somerset House and I'm hoping the wooden styles in particular will make it to some shop floor or another. Structural shoes that are merely editorial props are a painful affair, which is why I got extra happy when Atalanta Weller had ventured into retailable shoes. Me thinks that Chau Har Lee has a slightly easier task on her hand transferring her sculptural, laser-cut visions into functional shoes because that was her intention from the very beginning when she embarked on her graduate collection. So please, less on the "OMG, this is ART!" comments, seeing as we're encouraging Chau Har Lee to venture into shoes that are more than just plinth decorations.
