Zynni Cashmere was created by Qing Hua. She is originally from China. She dedicated many years of her life to become a professional dancer, now how six years of classical training in Chinese dance translate vis-à-vis a designer of luxury cashmere garments?. In 2014 she finished a degree al London Fashion college where she specialized in knitwear. She found in cashmere the perfect material to create garments that express style / luxury.
Her brand evolved when she moved to US where eventually the production of a season was speed up by working with a dedicated factory in China.
Currently her designs are seasonal as well as bespoke where she caters for specific customers requests in a short timeframe.
Her 2018 collection evolved around the topics of functional, wearable and chic items.
While talking to her, she mentioned that someone once asked her why she didn´t wear her own designs and her reply was that in order to create she needs to interact with the idea of someone else, bringing as well her own experience as a dancer and her own knowledge of body and extreme movements, as the ones you have with classical dancing, create an atmosphere where her designs come to life.
When I did enquiry about the manufacture process, I was so please to have an insightfull description: Zynni Cashmere has a factory in Guangdong, China, with design and Quality Control center. Its production capacity is 100,000 pieces a year but they are also positioned so that the brand can effectively take smaller orders such as 10-20 pieces a time with different designs. All of Zynni Cashmere materials are from Inner Mongolia, where the harsh weather and vast grassland produces the best cashmere, of these some we choose no dye cashmere for their natural quality.
NO dye cashmere this is an particularly interesting technique, it's Eco-friendly and the possibilities are fantastic http://zynnicashmere.com/
While browsing across her designs, I know some readers might be upset about it, but it reminds me a lot of the early works done by Gabrielle Chanel and the way she use jersey to create amazing garments...
Qing Hua loves cashmere not only as a material but also as a blank canvas for specialised design where textures, paterns and colours come to life. I found myself wanting to explore more about the material and the possibilities for my personal style, I never paid too much attention to it, until I came across Zynni Cashmere!
I urge you to explore the new collection and mix and match the many pieces it has incredible possibilities.
One last word about the designer, Qing currently resides in the Northern Virginia with her husband and two 5 years old twin boys, Anthony and Matthew.
