DBS Journal Next Story


William Fan’s designs stand out due to their depth of detail and unconventional cuts featuring a clear and calm design approach that is both timeless and unisex. His passion and his pursuit of perfection are reflected in the combination of traditional tailoring and innovative materials that can be found in his garments. Fan is able to create a fusion between European and Asian contrasts like no other designer. By doing so, he makes his fashion a reflection of his own biography. After taking a vibrant trip back to his bedroom as a child, Fan continues to tell the story that inspires his creations. His parent’s restaurant, for example, features a combination of Chinese furniture and German small town charm. The main element of William Fan’s Autumn/Winter 2018/2019 collection is the interaction between guests and hosts and between classic workwear and evening garments.
