Born in a small village of southern China, Xian Ji Wen was raised in a designer’s family. Her grandmother was the first to own a sewing machine in her village. Growing up hanging out in her aunt’s design studio, the designer blood has been running deeply in her body. Right after graduation, Wen landed her first job at her favourite fashion label. From an assistant to an assistant designer and eventually to be the lead designer, she worked hard and gained valuable experiences. However, she felt lost during the fast-paced production and started loosing touch with why she started from the first place. So she decided to move on. In August 2013, Wen founded her own label Komorebi with a mission to create easy to wear, high quality pieces inspired by nature.
