Attending Yuna Yang F/W 17 Fashion Show

" Every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward towards the future... This is known as Fashion Week"

February 11th, I took the train into New York city to attend my first ever fashion week show.  This particular designer is Yuna Yang, a women's high end clothing designer based in Manhattan who uses materials and inspiration from eastern and western culture to create her artistic high end collections.

The Yuna Yang Fall / Winter 2017 Collection is titled 'Lights in the Shadow'.  Women uniting worldwide in the darkest political and social times are creating a movement. These strong women banning together representing the light within darkness have inspired this collection.  

 "To see a single candle lit, where all it takes is a small flame to over power darkness.  With such light of power, it will illuminate the unity and strength.  Light shines brighter in the darkness." 

I would describe Yuna's collection nothing short of magical. 
Yuna's designs seemingly twinkled in the dim lit room. The use of light and dark hues danced in watercolor - like patterns including florals and "candle" prints flowing beautifully throughout the collection.  

Garments in mainly satin, silk, and velvet fabrics with delicate feminine touches of lace and fur floated down the runway, the use of layering fabrics and textures is pleasing to the eye. 

Yuna's true artistry was overall shown in the detail of these looks; intricate bead work, feathered accents and fine embroidery were all small touches that added a world of delicacy and fine detail to this stunning collection. 

I'm grateful to have witnessed  Yuna Yang's 'Lights and Shadow' FW 17 collection grace the runway.  I included a video of the show from her brand's youtube channel so you can watch as well. 

Thank you to Yuna's team for the show invitation.  All photos used in this post are taken off of google or taken by my friend Amanda Halbert @Lvl5films on Instagram   Leave below your thoughts on this collection, I loved sharing my experience with you & I hope to attend more fashion shows in the future.
