Functional; decorative and logo buttons are used throughout the entire collection. Every piece features details of an uneven cut. Comfort and sustainability remain the focus. Newly developed and sustainable fabric - blend of Tencel; Cupro and Oeko-Tex Certified Cotton (with subtle matte shine and extremely soft to the skin) are used for shirts; blouses and dresses.

With the idea of making clean-cut; elegant, yet stand out collections for women, Ying Cai debuted her first collection in 2016. Pieces from her collections were loved and worn by producers; actresses and models at multiple public events. Since 2017, her collections were seen repeatedly on notable magazines like Harper’s Bazaar; Glamour; GQ and Tatler. In 2019, Harvard University showcased multiple pieces from her collections at the Harvard Identities Fashion Show. She also showed her collections at Pure London; Vendôme Luxury (Paris) and Tuileries Showroom in both London and Paris.
