I instantly fell in love with Yi Fang Wan’s new collection for Fall/Winter 2012/13 presented in London’s Fashion Week. A very promising young designer, from southern China who recently graduated from the Central Staint Martin’s College of Art and Design and was awarded the L’Oréal Professionel Young Designer Award at the college’s BA Fashion degree in 2010. College’s graduates also include Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Stella McCartney and Hussein Chalayan.
Simple, elegant lines and high quality materials manage to create beautifully feminine and elongated silhouettes. I love the combination of blue and grey and the multiple layers of her clothing. Not to mention the oversized wooden pieces that give an architectural and theatrical dimension to the catwalk version of the collection. A great proposal for a contemporary style with all time classic elements.
