ZHI Chen dropped out of university in China in her first year as an engineering student to pursue her dream in fashion. She eventually won a national scholarship to study at the Parsons School of Design where she, however, left a year later. Yet, Chen continued her study at the London College of Fashion and graduated with distinction in 2017. She is now the freshest face in the industry with her label i-am-chen.

No philosophy or literature; it makes no wearable art. Although contemporary art feeds Chen profound inspiration for her design, practicality dictates the final product of every work of i-am-chen. As an apostle of craftsmanship, i-am-chen strives to deliver immaculate chic pieces comprised of stunningly intricate fabrics, developed independently by Chen with the latest technology in textile making.
