Benji WZW grew up in Hong Kong and Canada, where he first began his design experience in the renowned architecture school, University of Waterloo. He began his studies in the Fashion Department at the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts in 2010. 2013 marked the end of his 3rd year at the Antwerp fashion school, where he completed his graduate collection titled, 'That Paradise Would Be A Meme'. 'Meme' sprouted from the idea of contemporary youth cultures which take form and evolve through the Internet. The dichotomy of the physical life and digital fantasy is reflected in the prints, developed from architectural 3D modelling software, further layered with graphic transfers - creating a play in depth and layers of imagery. The shoes were designed by Benji WZW and professionally produced under the sponsorship of K&K Asia Ltd.
