'By Fang' is a clothing collection, conceived and designed by Chinese designer Fang Yang, that is designed to offer timelessly chic pieces at a time when much of the focus is on so-called fast-fashion. From a design point of view, what makes these clothing offerings stand out is the unique manner in which they are inspired by the folds, angles and symmetric principles of origami.

The 'By Fang' clothing collection also borrows from handmade handicraft techniques that Fang picked up from her grandmother. By taking age-old principles of Chinese handicrafts and origami and fusing them with modern textiles, fabrics and looks, Yang Fang ensures that her pieces give off an authentically timeless feel.

The use of high-quality, long-lasting Italian fabrics adds to the allure of these clothes but is also designed to promote long-term wear, which plays a role in protecting natural resources.
