Art Collection + Design Magazine features an article on Shao Yen Chen's use of unconventional materials in his fashion design works. For example, the combination of lycra, cashmere, synthetic yarns, nylon fibers, and fine plastic tubes creates multiple layers and textures for his Waver collection. Wool rovens, cooper flowers and other metalworks can also be found in his previous works.
Shao Yen Chen is the guest editor for La Vie Design Magazine's "Fashion Tide" feature. Three of his own designs are included in the editorials, along with items from other designers. The choice of outfits emphasizes on the structure and texture of the garments, aiming to respond to the anatomical theme from his 2008 Body as Clothes collection. All images were shot on location in a medical college.
六月份的La Vie設計雜誌邀請陳劭彥擔綱"時尚意識"單元的客座編輯。本次報導收錄了三件劭彥自己設計的作品，以及其他設計師的品牌。服裝的挑選重點在於其結構與布料紋理，希望能呼應他2008年Body as Clothes系列中以人體解剖為主要靈感的拍攝主題。這是一次很愉快又特別的拍攝經驗，感謝所有的工作人員與宜蘭聖母護專提供場地。
