Designer Huishan Zhang has recently released a four piece capsule collection inspired by his birth place China. Along with being a collection that is an exhibition of fine luxurious dresses, this sophisticated line is just in time for this year's Met Gala.

The theme for the 2015 Met Gala is 'China: Through the Looking Glass.' Zhang took this as an opportunity to construct a simple line of dresses that are crafted with Chinese influences in mind. Zhang repeatedly used China's national color red while also decorating a gown with a Swarovski crystal dragon motif. Huishan Zhang also used the lucky number eight in his designs by constructing a floral embroidery made by intertwining 8 shapes. He used this intricate embroidery on every dress in the collection excluding a simple white gown featuring a different kind of embroidery.

This collection is sold at the Barneys New York department store as well as Zhang's online boutique.
