Designer, Yuna Yang, was inspired by women taking a stand in troubled times.
Yuna Yang’s AW17 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.
Darkly elegant pieces with measured shadows.
She has 1970’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.
Women protesting in the streets of South Korea, the US Women’s March and elsewhere inspired Yuna Yang. With the AW 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 A/W17 collection pays homage to people who hold on to hope and belief in shadowed times.
