Yuna Yang chose a very different location for this show located in Times Square, the NASDAQ Marketsite! Tourists walk by but not everyone gets a chance to get in let alone watch a fabulous show. I arrived to the show on time according to the invite but of course fashion runs later than expected.
The show opened up with a video called “The Thief” where a girl wakes up confused in an unfamiliar apartment and stumbles across a mysterious closet filled with Yuna Yang’s latest collection. Memorized by the soft fabrics and delicate laces, the model tosses the clothes in a briefcase and runs into the wild New York City in different outfits.
Yuna Yang’s inspiration for this collection were Wassily Kandinsky’s paintings and music’s influence on his artwork. Yuna Yang was touched by the classical but modern aspects of Civil Twilight’s music. Naturally, the band sat front row, only three feet away from me (as shown in the photos since their heads were in the way).
One word to sum up this collection: LACE. Lace was EVERYWHERE in this collection whether it was blue, red, white, you name it! My favorite look of the show was the white lace short cape dress. The structure of the look is so clean, the white color is just so pure, and the dainty details on the shoulders really adds onto the innocence.
Can’t wait to see how other designers use lace in their pieces as NYFW progresses!
