The most important message Damur Huang wants to communicate is:
Live surreal, wear pragmatic.
His design philosophy is combining classical garment techniques with the newest methods in textile science, always changing the story society expects. He makes designs that imbue figure elegance with functionality, mixing of professional appeal and avant-garde details.
He thinks to know a person better; you have to see his/her clothes.
