Ning Dynasty sprouted from rebellion. As a teen, founder Ning Yuan found herself at odds with the conformist box that women were placed in by society – leading her to use art and music as a means of escape. This eventually included the crafting of 100% silk shirts; Yuan was inspired by dazzling stories of her ancestors’ rich and deep history as silk manufacturers in China.
Since its launch in 2021, Ning Dynasty has cemented itself as a mainstay in the luxury market, offering customers the opulence of Yuan’s heritage, but re-imagined for a modern consumer base. This new collection, headed by activist and model Kai Isiah Jamal, is a feat of flawless craftsmanship. Operating from genderless approach, the 100% mulberry silk collection features billowing, cascading shirts which catch the light like the gems they are.
This new collection also sees Ning Dynasty honour its long-term partnership with Beijing-based Huangjin – the world’s sole silk producer that bears the Forbidden Palace seal. Ning Dynasty’s versatile, day-to-night pieces coupled with its unparalleled vision is exactly what we want more of in the fashion industry. And, we’re always here for a defiant reclamation of heritage. What’s not to love?
