LIU WEN, MODEL
‘My first ever international show was Burberry, so it feels surreal to have life come full circle and to collaborate with the brand again for the Year of the Ox. Burberry’s campaigns are always so creative and surprising, and this time was no different. The shoot took place in a beautiful park and as soon as I encounter nature, my entire being revitalises – I absorb not just its beauty but also a kind of energy. It inspires me to continue my passion towards my work and my desire to always keep exploring.’
