ART MEETS FASHION: Yuna Yang Spring/Summer 2014 Collection (NYFW)

The Yuna Yang Spring 2014 collection is the perfect example of the designer’s credo of “Young Couture.” I could see her pieces becoming the favorites of young Hollywood who on recent red carpets have had a penchant for that retro ultra femme glam.

The love affair between art and fashion has been one that has stood the test of time. The coupling of the two creative worlds have inspired some of the most iconic and memorable fashion over the last hundred years– think Elsa Schiaparelli (influenced by Salvador Dali), Yves Saint Laurent (influenced by Piet Mondrian),  and Louis Vuitton (who collaborated with Takashi Murakami in 2002). Now added to this venerable list is, New York-based designer, Yuna Yang.

This fashion season, I had the pleasure of being a guest blogger for Alexandra Shook, the sweet, tres chic lovely behind the beautiful blog, Delayed Missives. One of the shows I covered was that of the nouveau couture brand, Yuna Yang at the famed Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre. Check out my post on Alex’s blog here.
