Spring 2015 Fashion Show Review: Christina Yi

I had the pleasure of attending Christina Yi's Spring 2015 show yesterday at Studio Arte. The collection went by the title of "Bone Collector" and was based on a re-imagined archeology theme. The colors were white, beiges, and grays on draped linens, and gauze or mesh sheers, with a few heavier fabrics thrown into the mix. There were a lot of cutouts used, oversized pieces, and skin showing through sheer on matte layered fabric. The archaeology theme showed itself most strongly with the safari shirt pockets seen throughout. The hairstyling consisted of unique ponytails parted in fresh places with frizzy ends for the women, and spiked up hair that was short on the sides for the men. Many models wore strappy sandals or bandages around their ankles that resembled a new take on the Roman design and worked perfectly with the looks.

I was very excited to learn from the studio manager, Chelsea Lynn Schultz, that the jewelry had been 3-printed. They resembled ancient white bones or artifacts which is such an interesting concept with new versus old. 3D printing is definitely a trend for fashion week that could be picked up by stores and popularized by trendsetters! Christina presented another wondrous collection mixing the avant garde with the wearable, and I look forward to seeing how Fashionistas/os style her pieces.
