"Many designers don’t vary much from season to season (not necessarily a bad thing — for example, Gareth Pugh makes clothes exclusively for fetish robots who never go outside or, indeed, breathe, eat or walk anywhere, meaning "seasons" are completely arbitrary) but this is not the case with Sheguang Hu…" — Sheguang Hu, and why The Hunger Games’ Capitol should’ve looked more like Beijing Fashion Week.

Sheguang Hu shares my love of upholstery fabrics. In general I think florals are vastly overused in almost every area of fashion design, but when they’re a) used in the context of an aggressively structured outfit like the one pictured here, or b) printed or embroidered in the style of pre-1900s fabric designs, then I approve. — Sheguang Hu, and why The Hunger Games’ Capitol should’ve looked more like Beijing Fashion Week.

"Hundreds of tiny, mournful faces printed onto the fabric, acting as a counterpoint to the aggressive metal spikes on the belt and shoulder-straps. This entire collection was about combining conservative, simple silhouettes with extravagant detail work." — Sheguang Hu, and why The Hunger Games’ Capitol should’ve looked more like Beijing Fashion Week.

"…There was a fair amount of pre-movie viral marketing centred around the Capitol fashions, but when it came to the film itself I realised that many of the most prominent costumes had already been revealed, and the bar for outlandishness was nowhere near as high as I’d expected. I’m hoping they edge more towards the Nicki Minaj/Sheguang Hu/Alexander McQueen end of the scale in the sequels as opposed to the brightly coloured but ultimately uninspiring looks we saw this time round." — Sheguang Hu, and why The Hunger Games’ Capitol should’ve looked more like Beijing Fashion Week.
