Known for superb construction and a minimalist aesthetic, Yeohlee lucked out with beautiful weather this year after having taken a gamble on her outdoor venue. 159 E 65th street was actually someone’s personal townhouse and so we were asked to sign papers promising we would not take photos of the property (other than the fashion show and the models themselves). Being that we were outside in the communal garden, I was surprised that more neighbors didn’t try to crash the party and/or peep out from their windows. Aren’t Upper East Sid-ers notorious for loving fashion??
My mad rush over from Lincoln Center had me in a New York frenzy. But upon stepping into the garden sanctuary and stepping over the cobblestone floor into my front row seat, I felt a sense of immediate calm, something Yeohlee had obviously orchestrated.
The fashion show signaled its beginnings with Zen chimes and sort of a new age musician, perfect for this Asian fashion show. We were further transported to another world simply by watching the models walk in slow motion almost in a peaceful, zombie-like way.
At every fashion show, I’m always looking out for that one piece that I would wear, whether it’s a designer I love or not. At Yeohlee, I found this adorable springtime coat. Structured, feminine, artsy and definitely unique, I could definitely see myself being able to rock this.
Here’s my video of the fashion show finale.
Zimbio has me posted as part of their Yeohlee front row collection (shown below). I’m wearing a vintage dress with an Ann Taylor leather jacket, Chanel purse and sunglasses and simple ballerina flats – AND for the last time because I’m giving this dress away to a lucky reader!
