“The magic of mathematics” designer, Yeohlee summed up her inspiration. In a small intimate venue her collection was either worn by several models or hung from the ceiling throughout the space. Her love of geometry certainly made math look like a piece of cake with this collection.
Yeohlee had several math notes hung on the walls, which may have assisted her from time-to-time. Circles, triangles, and squares were covertly weaved into the collection’s inspiration, but was still kept soft and relatable by the weight of jerseys. If more structure was necessary, certain materials such as felt, faille, and gazar were added.
The look heeded a modest school-girl feel that your mother would love as well. Very adorable. The colors stayed muted, ranging from grays, whites, blacks, beige, maroon, and to acid green. Silhouettes were respectably form fitting. One specifically endearing outfit was a hunter green and cobalt blue mohair wool double face wrap coat overtop of a white circle collar paper cotton shirt, matched with plaid linen cotton shorts of the same color scheme.
Gazing through the collection, it was like taking pictures throughout your daughter’s life. First, a charming school girl you waved goodbye to as she boarded the morning bus, then a stylish teenager with a floral silk georgette ruffle collar shirt, and finally she’s all grown up in Yeohlee’s white silk satin organdy Five Square Skirt, black matte jersey turtle halter.
Just like her collection, Yeohlee was quite pleasant as well while she could be found standing watching the show with the audience.
