For 28-year-old David Ubl the next step on his successful career ladder will be to expand his own brand, David UBL, across China.
Ubl has dreamt of becoming a designer ever since after his mother showed him how to use a sewing machine. At age 10 he started making his own clothes and soon after was creating costumes for his friends.
"I have never stopped sewing since. My mom says that I can sew better than her."
After high school he moved to the United States to study creative fashion design and pattern making in Boston, followed by the New York Fashion Institute of Technology
new york was not enough for david so he went to the elite fashion design school ESMOD in Paris and Berlin where he studied the techniques of french couture´ .
After winning the Gold Hempel award infor best international collection, Ubl went back to Berlin to finish his studies. During graduation he was chosen by Hempel, one of the biggest textile producers in China, and in 2008 was sent back to Beijing as the company's creative director.
"I trained Chinese designers to be more open minded in their way of designing. The creations in China can sometimes tend to be too extreme. They are either overloaded or too minimalistic. I had to try to help them to find a good balance."
One year later he was offered the role of chief designer for Beijing Sunry Longtai Fur Manufacturing Co Ltd, one of China's largest fur fashion houses.
"I had never worked with fur when I first came to Beijing, but I still said, 'yes' when Sunry Longtai offered me the chance to design a collection for the Fur Fair in 2009. I had to learn and follow the whole process from scratch," he says.
Ubl's natural talent was soon noticed. During one of the International Fur Trade Federation events the IFTF director inquired about Ubl's age. Soon after he was handed a certificate that recognized him as the world's youngest chief designer of fur.
Doing the last 2 year, i had lots of designers and agents form the big fashion house out of Paris, New York, London and Milano in my design office.
