NYFW Review: Yuna Yang Lines ‘Em Up And Takes Us To Church

Yuna Yang, originally from Seoul Korea, is now a Manhattan based designer, inspired by colors, textures, narratives in fine art combined with her love for detail and unique Western perspective on Eastern aesthetics.

At the church on the corner of 10th street and 2nd avenue, nestled in the cozy heart of the East Village, religion got medieval hot again as people piled into the pews lining each side of the church. In the back of the room plays a small band, filling the room with a soft yet powerful melody, creating an ambiance of refined beauty. Question is… Did Yang unveil to those in worship the Holy Grail or did her designs prove a fashionable Judas? Jessica Laiter reports. 

Although at first it felt too soft for an early morning weekend show, once the presentation began, design and Deus all came together. The Yuna Yang SS19 collection was a cohesive story of soft, breezy elegance, in easy-on-the-eye colors such as light blue, white, light pink and soft grey. A calm sets over the crowd, with a FROW in envy of the comfortable Athena-style sandals after days in fashion week stiletto musts.

Styles ranged from formal to date night, from beach easy to garden chic. Heavily infused with that typical South Korean girly bounce.

Yang’s SS19 style mixes up girly sophistication, romantic allures and conservative values, in a go-with-the-flow attitude as the materials drape over the curves of all womanly figures. Yang plays with two tone materials and shading for many of the styles, while sticking to monochromatic themes and single prints for a select few. ‘

On a final editor’s note: Perhaps a little too sweet ‘n low angelic on the demonic architecturally inclined Temper eyes and perhaps not groundbreaking Holy Grail-esque with a slight “been there, done that” feel to it, Yang’s SS19 presentation still proved an ethereal one made up of flowing shapes and fine fabrics finished off with some very fine craftsmanship. Just a perfect day to take us to church.
