LFW – Yeashin S/S 2014 collection: a Disney dream
At Freemason’s Hall, the second home of London Fashion Week, South Korean designer Kim Yeashin delivered a catwalk show that reminded us of Disney princesses and nostalgia was at its greatest for every female there!
Candy coloured dresses were presented to the audience each decorated much differently from the former, giving it an individual character. You could say that it was genius in some ways, as it can’t be easy as a new designer to create a collection that fits well together, yet still stands strong as individual pieces. However, Yeashin did an amazing job.
Mint greens, candy floss pinks and buttercup yellows were combined together to add specific detailing, including ruffles and bows. As every dress came down the catwalk, we females were left reminiscing of our days as young children, running about in our princess costumes; it truly was a pleasure to witness, and every piece in the collection complemented the others perfectly.
Models were practically gliding down the runway, and each girl had bright rosy cheeks – the type of glow that made us feel as though we were in a Cinderella dreamland. Hair was left down, with plait detailing – another characteristic that added to the young-girl feel.
A sense of quirk was evident in the collection, and seeing as Yeashin only launched her label last year, she managed to do well by appealing to the young girl inside every woman; so much so that we can see her fairly new career leading her down the costume-design path!
