Anti-Arch- Oliver Weiyu Zhang
Oliver Weiyu Zhang is the founder of AntiArch – a fashion brand based in Shanghai, China. He studied architecture design in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA and went to spend his final year of study in Tokyo, Japan where he found his enlightenment for fashion.
In 2013, the designer went to New York City to study at Parsons School of Design. After graduating from Parsons as “the designer of the year”, Oliver joined ThreeAsFour, an avant-garde pioneer fashion house located in midtown New York.
In 2017, Oliver moved back to Shanghai and established his own brand, AntiArch. With a previous architecture background, the designer embraced deconstruction techniques and merged them into aesthetic.
