A few days ago the Yuna Yang FW 2014 fashion show happened at New York Fashion Week. At usual, the talented Asian designer created wonderful looks for women who have places to go, women have people to see, and women who don’t mind dressing like a woman. There are two things that I think Yuna Yang does remarkably well, and that is dressing the type of woman I just described and using lace in the most beautiful ways.
While I couldn’t be in New York for fashion week, TFAS correspondent Mikelle Street was there to cover the Yuna Yang show for the blog. As usual, I am amazed by the beauty of the collection. Yuna Yang’s delicate feminine looks always remind me of the classic ladies of time gone by. It is for women who long for glamour. The delicate lace and silk balance out the modern looking shapes and colors. White and pastels are usually de rigueur for spring, but there is something about a crisp white pant and shades of pinks and blush that sets my heart a flutter. I know we are still trying to prepare ourselves for the fall months, who doesn’t get excited for short cocktail dresses and long maxi skirts with sheer panels. I am already looking toward the future. Are you? Photos by Mikelle Street.
The lovely people at Yuna Yang sent me some great behind the scenes photos from the Yuna Yang FW 2013 fashion show. They show the models having fun and the good stuff happening back stage. I also have some shots of the finale. This show was in a beautiful venue, and the clothes were gorgeous! Take a peek at the pics.

This season’s Yuna Yang collection was simply beautiful. With a pre-show clip featuring a fashion caper who stole the collection out of an apartment and dashed through Central Park, I was able to get a glimpse of the collection before the fashion presentation began. Then the music of Civil Twilight started and the first looks came out in the Nasdaq building.
