Fashion designer Yuna Yang presented her Yuna Yang Fall Winter 2014 "Butterfly Mother" fashion collection at a runway show, during New York Fashion Week Fall 2014, on February 5, 2014 at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Her womenswear collection was inspired by the embroidery, weaving, paper-cutting, batik and jewelry casting from the Miao culture in southwest China. The twenty-nine looks presented during the show had a youthful, lively mix of ethnic Chinese culture with hip Western urban culture. Weather intentional or not, the collection can easily be adopted by hip-hop culture. The vivid colors, bold embroidery and creative construction screamed energy.
The show got off to a good star, with a model walking the runway in a raylane black fur coat, with red silk pants. The soft texture of the pitch-black fur made it glisten with a shiny, almost wet effect under the runway lights. The pant were a strong, bright, fire red. A really cool look was a black fur top with blue pants. The top had the same visual effect as the black fur coat; and also has sparkling jewels in the shapes butterflies and other insects along the collar. The blue pants flare out steadily to form large, elegant bell-bottoms, that are totally hip.
One playful and girlie look is an anna grey beading top, with off-white skirt. The sweater is All-American college grey. The detailed embroidery are strategically placed for maximum sophistication. The free flowing skirt gives the outfit youth and vitality. This collection has some very fresh looks. Please click on link to view more images from the Yuna Yang Fall Winter 2014 collection.
