A Fashion Meets Art Retail Experiment in Collaboration with Triple-Major and Isis Gallery

Triple-Major, a creative studio and concept store based in Beijing, will launch a two week Nomad Store at Londonewcastle Project Space in London during London Fashion Week.

Triple-Major is a Beijing based multi-disciplinary project helmed by Ritchie Chan that beautifully encapsulates the exciting global worldview of young Chinese people today. Although essentially a fashion collective producing their own collections and presenting them internationally, Triple-Major is very concept driven and invites international artists to install work in their three story space in the old hutong district of this most exciting of 21st Century cities.

Additionally they helm the Nomad Store, which appears in different cities across the world. Previous emergings have included Los Angeles (Jul 29th-Aug 14th 2011), Shanghai (Jan 11th-Jan 22nd 2010) and Hong Kong (Nov 24th-Nov 30th 2010). This is the first time that Nomad Store has come to London, in a perfect clash with London Fashion Week.

As well as presenting their own collection, Triple-Major will also be representing fresh collections from young Chinese labels Digest Design Workshop and JL.

For this Nomad Store, Isis and Triple-Major are also expanding the remit to include young Chinese contemporary art and publishing. This will be the first time most of the participants will have presented their work in the UK, even though they all are establishing themselves internationally. By no means meant to be an exhaustive overview, Nomad Store will rather be a sounding or sample that will pulse with the energy of the future.

Tsai’s meticulously balanced works exhibit a clarity and precision that marks her out as an artist of sincerity and depth. Additionally, her periodical Lovely Daze has marked her out as one of the most interesting people in the creative arena. We are extremely pleased Charwei Tsai is able to participate in this experiment…
