Fashion designer Qinghe Cao's brand new collection appeals to those toy-loving fashion gurus with a collection that takes inspiration from Japanese fantasy.

Her collection provides insight on her eclectic inspirations as a talented, young designer from Beijing's prestigious China Central Academy of Fine Arts. She has an extremely distinct and imaginative style having launched her very first collection in 2011 and now in 2014.

She has been organizing pop-up stores and her jewelry has been featured on iLook, Figaro and more. She uses her love of old toys as imaginative tools to cross boundaries of reality and to float into a fantasy world. She's spent most of her spare time exploring local toy museums and galleries that target children, where she shares a passion for little crafts and old-fashioned objects.
