New York Fashion Week continues to attract young designers who stand out as the Canadian duo “Laurence and Chico”, a specialist in extravagant outfits worn by dizzying silhouettes.
The couple formed by Laurence Li and Chico Wang, based in Vancouver but both of Chinese origin, remain faithful to a favorite accessory: excessive wigs giving an unexpected verticality to their models, who mock male/female barriers.
