Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize final: Huishan Zhang

(It's next week. No pressure, then)


In the final of our four-part run-up to next week's Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize final, ELLE catches up with the super-talented Huishan Zhang to discover what he's got planned.

Hint: this beautiful blue dress is part of it. But will it be enough to bag him the £25,000 prize? We only have to wait till 29 October to find out...

How are you preparing for the final on 29th October?
It has been a great opportunity to go back through the past collections and put together a very special selection for the presentation. It’s always good to step back and see the journey of the brand so far, and what I am really proud of.

What can we expect from your catwalk presentation?
Expect a good mix of past and present, really showing the continuation of the brand from where we started. I’m looking forward to showing a really eloquent combination of looks.

What would winning the prize mean to you?
Winning the prize would be amazing. To be recognised by Dorchester Collection is fantastic as the Huishan Zhang brand shares the same values of heritage and modernity combining to create something really luxurious.
