In Chinese symbology, those born in the year of the snake are regarded as intelligent, graceful, and materialistic. They tend to be charming and popular.

Black and red are considered lucky colors for the snake zodiac sign.



This collection was designed with stylized interpretations and texture in reptile pattern shapes.

Reversibility is used in every garment to prioritize versatility and functionality for the modern professional Chinese woman.

This dress was knitted in a 2-color birdseye jacquard structure. When knitted, the black elastic yarn condenses the stitches creating concave shapes, while the wool/cotton fiber creates convex shapes, resulting in dimension and structure.


The alternating black elastic stitches on the backside are hidden by the protruding light gray stitches, causing the backside to appear as a solid light gray color from a distance.


This stitch creates a solid foundation for exploration of reversible garments.

We also had an online presence with Taobao, Bundshop, and Sugarlady.

By working with small boutiques, we were able to get customer feedback from shop owners, and were able to adjust our products accordingly.
