Collection – The Beast Within

Paula Cheng is a New York-based fashion designer. Paula is a graduate of the inaugural class of the Fashion Design and Society MFA program at Parsons the New School for Design, where she specialized in research-based designs, deconstructive knitwear and complex free-form draping. During her tenure at Parsons, she was the winner of the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty competition, and a finalist of the Feel the Yarn Competition in Florence. Her recent work has been featured in the past in Wallpaper, Bullett, and Vogue Italia magazines as an emerging young designer. Lanificio Dell’Olivo, an Italian luxury yarn company, provided exclusive sponsorship for her final MFA graduate collection, which was featured in Womenswear Daily, and The New York Times. Paula's past collections have been exhibited worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum in New York, Benjamin House London, and Honda Hair Show during Tokyo Fashion Week. Paula is currently selected as a finalist for the International Talent Support Competition, where she will be debuting her most recent knitwear and footwear collection, "The Beast Within." With professional and institutional experience from Asia, United States and Europe, Cheng's design style is cosmopolitan, conceptual and always progressing.
