Paris, Oct. 2 (CNA) Taiwanese designer Wang Chen Tsai-hsia, the founder of Taiwanese fashion brand Shiatzy Chen, made a splash at the Spring Summer Fashion Show in Paris on Tuesday, with her designs that featured paper cutting folk art.

Former French Culture Minister Jack Lang said at the event that Wang Chen's latest collection "Perpetuality" was "amazing."

Wang Chen's work embodied motifs of humans, animals, flowers, sceneries and employed an abundance of precise but balanced and perpetuating lines to create abstract forms that managed to maintain simplicity.

The renowned designer used bold colors and silk material to interpret traditional eastern art, the spirit of liberation during the 1920s and the chic and sleekness of the 1960's.

The designs were displayed by supermodel Carmen Kass of Estonia and Chinese models Liu Wen and Ming Xi on the catwalk at the Grand Hotel Intercontinental.

Patty Hou, a TV host and former anchor from Taiwan, said Wang Chen is a symbol of Eastern fashion and that her designs at the show were as fancy as in the world of Barbie dolls.

A number of other celebrities from Taiwan, China and elsewhere also attended the show.

Wang Chen Tsai-hsia, who founded the brand in 1978, was the only Taiwanese designer to take part in the fashion show.
