Videmus Omnia is an artisan fashion brand based in New York City. Founded in 2016 by Yun Qu.
Videmus Omnia represents one of the up-and-coming independent fashion brands. The New York based brand focuses on creating innovative, unconventional fashion while taking cues from modern art and music pioneers.

The Spring-Summer 2020 “Artisan Collection” showcased to both, buyers and press, during Paris Fashion Week in collaboration with 3RDEYE Showroom starting with September 25th until October 2nd. The designer showcased the Spring- Summer 2020 season through a creative static presentation on September 28th in 126 Rue De Turenne, 75003, Paris, the main base of 3RDEYE Showroom.
The season is inspired by Glam Rock music, Japanese Kimono structure, as well as the famous architect Frank Gehry’s deconstructivist style with unusual shapes and materials.
In this experimental collection, the designer uses three complete different elements as inspirations to design this collection. The designer wants to express that – just like music, you can put feelings into clothes, and also don’t judge people based on their race.
‘’I don’t agree with many people that they judge my designs with “Asian flavor” when they see me coming out from a fashion show, which I never intended to do so. I want the audience to see my designs and to feel the emotions, instead of judge my designs based on my race.’’ – Yun Qu, founder and designer of VIDEMUS OMNIA.
