INTRODUCING RUONE YAN
INTRODUCING RUONE YAN - GRADUATE COLLECTION
Ruone Yan, born and raised in Chongqing, China. She graduated from the Chongqing No.8 High School and soon after enrolled at the Academy to study menswear design. The BFA Fashion Design student unveiled her conceptual collection during New York fashion week.
The collection is fabricated from a cotton canvas that was hand dyed with oolong tea with accents of jersey and leather. Yan’s collection draws inspiration by the Cephalotus, also known as the Venus flytrap, wanting to capture the idea of the insects being trapped within it. Cocoon-like layers feature throughout, with the monochromatic palette focusing attention on the innovative silhouettes and structural forms.
