ABOUT
'Combining what we can control and what is out of our hands. Serendipitous discoveries creating alluring designs. Order and chaos brought together in perfect equilibrium. The interplay of colour and fabric takes you somewhere unexpected.'

Born into a textile family in southern China, Shanshan Ruan came to France in 2007, to pursue studies in Fashion Design at ESMOD.

After polishing her skills in French haute-couture houses Alexis Mabille and Anne Valérie Hash, she had a brief experience in the quintessential multi-labels boutique L'Eclaireur.

With these eye-opening adventures she felt inspired, and designed her first collection In Motion. Here she used hand-painting for the first time, explored in a subtle and ethereal way.

Shanshan Ruan founded her eponymous label in 2013, after receiving the Public Prize at the 28th Hyères Festival of Fashion and Photography for her first collection.

Today she designs and paints in her Paris atelier, offering crafted contemporary ready-to-wear pieces.
