Du kan nog föreställa dig mitt ansiktsuttryck när jag såg att jag var inbjuden att gå på Yuna Yangs modevisning. Inte nog med att hon redan förut designat otroliga kollektioner, när jag läste att den här kollektionen var inspirerad av kvinnor i besvärliga & oroliga tider så blev jag bara ännu mer förväntasfull. Tyvärr så hade jag inte möjlighet att se modevisningen i person, men jag satt & kollade in modellerna från min soffa. Nu ska jag inte prata något mer utan jag låter dig verkligen ta in hela kollektionen själv tillsammans med press releasen som skickades till mig efter modevisningen:
Translation: You can imagine the smile on my face when I received an invitation to Yuna Yang’s fashion show this season. Not only does she design amazing collections, reading that the newest collection was inspired by women in troubling times made me even more excited to see it. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend the show in person, instead, I watched the models walk down the runway from my couch. Now, I’m going to leave you to soak in the collection with an extract from the press release that was sent to my inbox after the fashion show:
Yuna Yang’s FW17 collection shows that “light shines brighter in the darkness.” She features both looks with bold prints and dancing colors and looks that play with chiaroscuro, such as dark velvet and light fabric. Women protesting in the streets of South Korea, the US Women’s March and elsewhere inspired Yuna Yang. With the FW 2017 runway show, Yuna Yang celebrates women who make their social and political voices heard “the power of one person holding a candle.”
Social and political movements have always expressed their inner light through fashion, whether suffragettes or hippies. YUNA YANG’s F/W17 collection pays homage to people who hold on to hope and belief in shadowed times. Yuna’s collection features both bright prints with dancing lights and darkly elegant pieces with measured shadows. She has 19 70’s -inspired pants with modern flower prints. She uses metallic fabrics to transform sweatshirts into sophisticated day to eveningwear. Finally, since even activists need their downtime, she introduces trendy loungewear, such as sophisticated French lace pajamas with silk piping.
