Award winning designer Yeohlee Teng was born in Malaysia and has worked primarily in New York City, where she established her house, YEOHLEE Inc, in 1981. Yeohlee believes that design comes from serving a function and is refined through time and process. Her designs are driven by material, maximizing the use of each fabric by thoughtful consideration of weight, texture, color, cut and finishing. She believes that Clothes have magic. Their geometry forms shapes that can lend a wearer power.
Yeohlee"s work has been featured in numerous exhibitions internationally and is part of the permanent collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where curator Richard Martin called her one of the most ingenious makers of clothing today. Yeohlee"s clothes conserve and impart energy for they are the synthesis of reason and magic.
For Fall 2012 designers are inspired by a wide range of influences, from the elaborate details of brocade and metallic gold embellishments to the dynamic mix of military chic and power pantsuits. Colo
