Beijing, China – Chinese fashion brand Chiu Yu is changing the way we think about fashion in China.
The designer has developed a style for Chinese women, the bulletproof vest, which she has dubbed the ‘Bulletproof Vest for Women’.
The name of the brand is a reference to the bullet proof bulletproof jacket that is often worn by women in China, which is one of the reasons Chiu says the brand has attracted a lot of interest from Chinese women.
Chiu Yu, founder of Chiu Yue, in Beijing.
She said she came up with the idea for the bullet-proof vest after reading an article about how many women in the US wear a bulletproof suit, or bulletproof dress.
She said, ‘I had the idea of wearing a bullet proof vest for women, but I wanted to make something for women that’s not too flashy.
And also not too feminine.
And it also fit in with what I want to make for women.’
She said that it was important for the company to use high-quality fabrics.’
In the US, the main concern about bulletproof clothing is it doesn’t protect you, and in China it is much different.
The women I work with are much more worried about protection,’ she said.
She says she wants to change that, and also for women in other countries, like the UK, where she said the traditional style of dressing has changed.
‘Bullets don’t mean you have to wear a jacket or a dress, but they can also be a symbol of a lot more than just your personal style,’ she explained.
The brand is currently looking for designers and artists who want to create the product, and says it will be available in China in the second half of 2018.
