One to Watch: Ryan Lo

After last month's new batch of spring collections, we have a lot to obsess over here at Couturesque. One we couldn't get enough of was the sugary sweet, ultra feminine collection of London-based Ryan Lo. Since 2013, Hong-Kong born Lo has blended pop culture with childhood fantasy wowing us with every season.

Lo's spring collection has a heavy anime influence and centers around frills, fawn accents, and a candy color palette. It feels like the first fresh breaths of the spring, like it's made to be worn while frolicking in the forest of some far off land. Pieces like the frilly blush and lavender dress as well as the fawn and leopard fur coat would put anyone in a bright spring mood. But his S/S 16 collection is nothing unusual; Lo's style has always had an air of whimsy. In past collections his models have walked down the runway in fluffy fluorescent vests, daisy-chain capes, furry chokers, even painted as deer and pandas. Needless to say, we are all dreaming for spring and patiently waiting to see what Ryan Lo will do next.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
