YUNA YANG SS19 New York Fashion week show
February 1, 2019
“As a female Asian designer, I constantly face the challenge of breaking the stereotype of ‘an Asian woman.’ I imagine a world where people are free to achieve their dreams by facing challenges with passion and ceaseless efforts regardless of their background, race, gender or any other perceived boundaries dividing us.” —Yuna Yang Spring/Summer 2019 at Yuna Yang is all about Freedom. Freedom to be who we are, to love who we love, to wear (of course!) what we want to wear. This takes shape in a collection filled with pieces that represent Yuna in this moment: strong, assertive silhouettes contrasted with the ruffles and lace emblematic of fragility and femininity. An undercurrent of sensuality runs throughout the collection. Bare shoulders, sheer fabrics, a slice of skin at the waist: all broadcast the confidence of a woman who knows herself and is not afraid to take up space.
