The It-Dresses of Self-Portrait

Probably, you have already seen Self-Portrait's dresses. In just five years the London-based brand has established itself as a commercial success with its affordable and contemporary dresses. Founded by Han Chong, the Malaysian-born designer studied fashion design at the prestigious Central Saint Martins and launched the brand after graduation.

Following an affordable luxury approach, Chong believes that beauty should not be an option limited to a few. His designs for Self-Portrait, where lace dresses stand out, combining the discreet and the striking in feminine and very flattering lines; perhaps the reason why Meghan Markle, Miranda Kerr or Beyonce already opted in for his designs.

Both designer and team dedicate a lot of time to pattern making and studying how dresses should feel, looking for a certain versatility in each piece, which makes them perfect either for a walk on the beach or for a special night out.

When I design, I think of a modern woman who needs a dresse she can wear to work and then put on heels for a night out.
