Yuna Yang presented her Fall 2014 collection at the Alvin Ailey Dance studio to set off Fashion Week 2014. Started in 2010, Yuna Yang's line is inspired by her international travels. Yuna's inspiration was easily translated onto the runway, as her pieces seemed to have Asian and European influences, blended seamlessly into one piece.

Yuna Yang’s fall 2014 collection, titled “The Butterfly Mother” pulled inspiration from the Miao culture an ethnic group from southwest China. The “embroidering, weaving, paper cutting, batik, and jewelry casting,” as described in the designer’s inspiration, is seen throughout the entire show and is a tribute to the “Miao Spirit” that is transformed from traditional to modern. Modern styles are blended with traditional elements and spirituality to celebrate the essence of nature.

The collection is a mix of prints and boyish cuts with feminine embellishments. Black lace was juxtaposed against bright neon silks, ornamented sweaters with midi silk skirts, silk dresses with slouchy socks paired with sneakers, and vibrant blue dresses.

The runway make up and hair was phenomenal. Models sported funky braids that were a clear inspiration of Miao culture. The hair was braided, twisted and slicked down into complex ponytails like sculpted pieces of art. Models walked the runway in fun embellished sneakers, which added a modish aesthetic to Yuna’s girly looks.

Unfortunately, I was not wowed by Yuna Yang fall 2014 collection. The pieces photographed well but the quality of the materials and fabrics were not at the standards expected during NYFW. However, Yuna’s inspiration was clear and the collection was cohesive.
