All Comes From Nothing (ACFN) is women’s wear created by artist and designer Eva Yiwei Xu. ACFN is dedicated to women with creative lifestyles.
THE ATTITUDE: COMING OF AGE
The ACFN woman is determined to experience life and the world as it is. No longer lost on finding who she is or how to be, she has reached a point in her life where she knows herself deeply. With her rooted identity, she welcomes everything in life with open arms. Both pleasant and challenging moments are savored equally since each play a special role in life’s deep unfolding.
Some of the names used to describe her are photographer, designer, author, artist, baker, florist, painter, composer, or playwright. She is between late 20 and early 50, or at least her heart is always young. She is very dedicated to her creative work. Her studio is where a myriad of adventures take place. She dares to venture into ideas unexplored by many. As a strong individual, the ACFN woman is not victimized by fashion. Clothing does not place an identity on her; rather, her overall essence defines the style. The ACFN woman creates for life. She is artistic, elegant, intuitive and adventurous. Fashion is an accomplice, not her calling card.
Inspired by the Chinese philosophy of simplicity and Minimalism art, ACFN designs combine the softness and draping found in natural fabrics with geometric shapes, creating versatile and unique looks. Each ACFN piece yields to the essence of the individual, allowing their inner identity to shine.
