On Friday, Blizzard Nemo crippled some from making it to designer Yuna Yang's show; but not all. With antique, dark wood walls, high cathedral ceilings and petal-shaped chandeliers as backdrop, along with the sound of classical music from a live band wafting in the air, the presentation of Yang's collection was quite charming.
An open bar, featuring "Venetian Summer," a concoction of O.J., peach juice and vodka, catered to those who arrived early. Adding to the air of old-world charm, models walked leisurely in measured pace; sans the "strut," which typically is seen on fast-beat runway shows. A motley of looks: Business blazer and pant pairings, a white ruffled blouse, dresses in draping techniques and velvet skirts. Not to mention, eveningwear that was diversified, such as the black lace dress with tulle skirt, almost like a tutu, was amongst the lineup.
Shapes were slim, and fitted with the exception of pieces that were a bit roomier, such as those with slits on skirts or flared hems on pants. The show's takeaway is beautiful lace. Some in bold colors lined blouses, skirts and dresses, making the collection feminine. Deep, bright red and green used on silk skirts or dresses made for a sexy, edgier look; but silhouettes remained unquestionably ladylike.
