‘Cantilever’ by Julie Yeung
The creative method of young fashion designer Julie Yeung is delicate and ambitious. We rediscover it in her latest collection “Cantilever”, inspired by the concepts of ambiguity and balance. With this collection, the designer now based in Paris not only confirms her sensibility for using bright colors tastefully in a luxury collection, but also challenges the idea of structure, form and draping of a female garment with the help of technology.
Julie Yeung approaches the notion of haute couture by trying to contaminate high-end fashion with the latest technologies for fashion design. Soft structures composed of laser-cut wooden slats that are cantilevered from the body.
On an aesthetic level, the final effect given by the interwoven synthetic fibers and printed inserts creates a sense of weightless, floating forms. The garments are composed of separate, detachable components that can be mixed and matched according to your needs.
Julie just graduated from London College of Fashion and recently designed the first capsule clothing collection for Italian brand Leghilå. In her CV there’s also a diploma at Northumbria School of Design and an internship at Roland Mouret, Erdem and Harrods in London.
