In the eyes of international fashion designer KavenLiu, clothing is not only the stitching of fabrics but also the interweaving of body curves and inspiration. Each design element interprets the designer’s unique insights into the work. DIMOR has been invited again to participate in the New York Fashion Week NOLCHA SHOWS, the 2022 Sping & Summer on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. Designer Kaven Liu follows the usual high-level design, combined with the current background, and interprets design philosophy with love. The opening debut will directly lead the 2022 international fashion trends. Kaven Liu DIMOR uses the concept of “liberalization” and “sense of belonging” as the brand concept. Style replaces the trend as his design philosophy, and the combination of comfort and aesthetic compatibility conveys the pursuit and love of modern women for the quality of life.
Born in 1982, in the city of Panjin of Liaoning Province, Kaven Liu committed wholeheartedly to the dream of the creation of beauty as early as he took his brst handwork class and learned how to clip, crop and collage at elementary school. Although Kaven came from a modest family background, he has never gave up his dream of becoming an artist and designer. After graduating from college, he became a stylist and makeup artist, which paved the way for the designer brand he established 17 years later – it helped him understand the industry from all aspects of fashion. With years of experience in the fashion industry and great enterprising spirit, Kaven Liu DIMOR, the brand he founded also represents the chic, classy and niche style he upholds in his work and family. Often referred to himself as the magician of beauty, Liu’s design transcends the limitation between tradition andfashion, emphasizes the fusion of the East and the West and redefines the Chinese fashion with the mission to create “neo-Chinese chic”.
A CONVERSATION WITH KAVENLIU DIMOR
How did your passion for design begin, and how did your creative process proceed?
KavenLiu: I was a well-known stylist before. I have been in this industry for more than ten years. When I was in the industry for 7.8 years, my requirements for beauty were no longer limited to makeup and styling. I began to focus on clothing, colors, collocations and accessories. This is my original intention for costume design. The difference from other designers may be that I am from an aesthetic background, but I changed from a makeup brush to a paintbrush. In many of my creative processes, I use character characters as the theme, just like the brand spirit “every second in life is a scene”, the themes of previous works: “Day”, “Encounter of Romance”, “Parallel World” “Multiple space” and “spatial geometry” all take people as the inner beauty, and the scene as the visual beauty, both of which are thoughts in the creative process.
How do you think the fashion industry is helping independent designers?
KavenLiu: Fashion has created different opportunities and opportunities for designers, with more diverse ways of presentation.

What does the fashion industry need to grow, and what can be done better?
