costume designer 服装设计师

My name is Liu Jiaxi, but in the industry, everyone is used to calling me Wan Zi. I graduated from Shanghai Theatre Academy with a major in costume and makeup design, and then continued studying for a Master’s degree in costume in Shanghai Theatre Academy. In 2015, I established my own theatrical costume design studio, mainly designing costumes for stage performance, advertising, opening ceremony, evening party and other events. The main works and projects I participated in include stage plays “Legend of Yun Qu”, “Double Star”, immersive play “Sleep No More”, “Secret Cinema”; 2017 League of Legends Beijing Bird’s Nest Final Opening Ceremony;  shooting of Dettol commercial and more.

1. Coolest place you’ve been sent for work ? 工作中去过的最有意思的地方是哪里?

Xinjiang 新疆

2. Favorite movie of all time? 有史以来你最喜欢的电影是哪一部?

Life is beautiful


3. The best way to destress? 对你来说,最好的减压方式是什么?

Breathing exercises, meditation


4. A book you plan on reading? 打算读那本书?

A book by Kiyoshi Ogasawara, roughly translated as “Celebrations of dying”


5. Your favorite creative project you’ve ever worked on, and why you like it so much? 你曾经参与过的创意项目其中,那个是你最喜欢的项目;为什么你这么喜欢它?

My favourite project is stage play “Legend of Yun Qu”, because this was the first time I’ve really got involved in designing ancient Chinese costumes. I like projects like this with traditional clothing.

最喜欢的是舞台剧 《曲云传》,因为这个舞台剧是第一次真正意义上涉足中国古风类的造型设计,自己很喜欢与传统服饰有关的戏剧类的造型设计。

We invite each of the creatives we profile to tag another interesting person for the series. Liu Jiaxi suggested painter Cai Cai.
