at Art Basel Hong Kong.
In her mid 20s, Wanbing gained a BA fashion creation technique
degree in the prestigious Bunka University in Tokyo Japan, before moving to
London to pursuit further fashion education at Central Saint Martins under the
BA Fashion womenswear pathway.
While working on her brand, she has worked at
Celine and Issey Miyaki and was selected as one of the finalist at the school's
"Louis Vuitton Project". Wanbing Huang is now stocked exclusively at the high-end select
