Yiqing Yin – The Dreamer
Yiqing Yin, which means “after a storm comes calm”, is a talented new fashion designer on the scene of high fashion. Yin immigrated from China at the age of 4, having been tossed between countries and having her clothes provided to her, since her father had supported the Tiananmen student protest movement. She returned to clothes when she attended the Ecole Nationale des Arts Decoratifs and also at la Chambre syndicale de la Haute couture and the London College of Fashion.
In 2010, Yin won the Grand Price of Creation by the City of Paris. She presented her creations at the Hyeres International Festival in 2010. She was just 25.
Her collection, The Dreamer” was on exhibit at the Hotel de Crillon during March 2011 Women’s Fashion Week, curated by Vogue France. Yin has been selected by French Vogue as one of the 8 young designers to follow up on. She has also signed the costume design for global campaigns of prestigious brands including Swarovski and Cartier.
In June 2011, Yiquing Yin was awarded the Andam Prize for First Collections and has presented her debut show on July 7th during the Fall Winter 2012 Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris.
I especially like that Yiquing Yin showcases her collections in a very creative fashion. Not only are her garments imaginative but she presents them in a most artistic way. I am of the belief that in order to sell anything, presentation is everything and Yiquing Yin demonstrates her skills and talents in a very memorable way. The compositions of her designs incorporated into these creative photos are literal works of art. I love the wind moving flowing fabric around the models in an ethereal way, in her Dream Collection designs. I’m drawn into the smoky atmosphere, use of black and white & models in thought provoking poses in the Ouvrir Venus Collection. These images create a definitively spiritual mood that excite the imagination.
You can follow her on her Facebook page or visit her website, to stay current on what she is up to. Here are some of the images from the Dreamer Collection and her Ouvrir Venus Collection that debuted during Paris Fashion Week 2011-2012. Be sure to see her fashions on the Catwalk.
