Fan Weiyan, a designer born during the 1980s, has been awarded with the Youth Star Salon Review title at the 2017 Milan Furniture Fair which was held in April 4-9, 2017.

Fan, who submitted 12 silk tapestry furniture works over five series, was the fourth Chinese mainland-based designer to be awarded at the trade fair, now in its 56th year.

Fan’s work was rigorously assessed by international judges, and he was then selected as one of four Chinese designers from a total of 104 exhibitors.

To get to where he is now, Fan pursued a career in working with high-quality designer brands, such as the R&D centre of Hermes’ headquarters in Paris, after graduating from the Suzhou University. After eight years of unwavering concentration on the traditional handmade skills of Suzhou, Fan then founded her brand, KE-Made in Suzhou, in 2015.
