Han Feng
Costume Designer

Han Feng is a creative force known for her fashion accessories, ready-to-wear and stage costumes, most recently for director Anthony Minghella's "Madama Butterfly" and the upcoming "The Bonesetter's Daughter", based on a novel by Amy Tan.

Born in Nanjing, China, and now based in Shanghai, she graduated from the China Academy of Fine Arts in Hangzhou and moved to New York City where she began her career in fashion when her textile designs
came to the attention of Henri Bendel, Barney's and Brooks Brothers.

Han Feng's work has been featured in several international installations and exhibitions such as The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology and The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Sotheby's Chinese Contemporary Art exhibition in 2001 and 'Design Life Now' Cooper-Hewitt National Design Triennial, 2006. Her work is currently included in 'China Design Now', at the Victoria & Albert museum in London. She has been sought as a personality commenting on
culture and style, with regular appearances on TV and other media outlets in the US and China.

Freedom, movement, texture and color are some of the things that animate her work, designing clothes that accommodate one's natural movement. Continuing to blur the division between art and design, aesthetic quality infiltrates every Han Feng design
