A young fashion graduate from Donghua University has caused a stir in the UK fashion world, as her collection of vibrant knitwear designs was showcased at the London College of Fashion's prestigious LCFMA Autumn/Winter 2017 Ready-to-wear Collection.

Chen Zhi received rave reviews for her colorful collection, titled Playground, with photos of some of her designs even appearing on the website of Vogue, the world-famous fashion magazine.

This was the second time that an alumnus of Donghua University's Fashion Art Design Institute has impressed critics in London. Tan Wen was previously one of the stars of the 2014 LCFMA show.

Established in 1951, Donghua University specializes in textiles, fashion design, textile engineering, international trade and material science.
