It has always been a dream of mine to capture the behind the scenes of a fashion show. Call it luck, call it connection, call it manifestation, call it whatever you like the opportunity popped up and I couldn’t believe it. It was 11 years ago that I had the chance to model in a fashion for Canadian designer Charles Lu. Though years have passed we’ve always kept tabs on each other and this year Charles released his first ever self titled line called ONE – by Charles Lu.

Charles Lu is most recently noted for his participation on Netflix’s new fashion design competition series, ‘Next In Fashion’ where he competed on and international platform amongst 18 designers. He was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. He developed a keen interest in fashion, craftsmanship, and design very early on in life. Relocating to London, UK at the age of 18, Charles trained at Istituto Marangoni. Here he began to master and develop his technique and further understanding of garment construction.

He has the highest respect for artistry, imbued with time-honoured methods of construction. The appreciation alongside with his international eye for innovative poetic expression within design led him to Dubai, where he worked for 3 years as a creative director for ARUSHI COUTURE x CHARLES LU, producing many projects and 3 defining collections.

Now Charles is carving his own path and has most recently finished his first self titled collection that you will see in this behind the scenes video.
