OFF THE RUNWAY: YIFANG WAN
YIFANG WAN AW13-14
Yifang Wan’s Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 collection showcased her Asian heritage and avan garde designs. Wan uses the draping of fabrics and movement to dictate fluidity. Her elegant use of heavier fabrics layered over the shoulders and skimming the floor proved to be conservative but powerful.
With influences by performance artist Marina Abramović; collection she focuses on examining the containment of an inner conflict. This is evident with the uses of muted jade greens, plums and dark indigo blue hues. Striking accessories descended the runway in forms of metallic weaponry. Some pieces were worn over the shoulder; reminding us of a soldier on a battleground.
