More Description

Since establishing her own fashion house in 1981, Yeohlee's strong and consistent approach to clothing design has made her name synonymous with 'intimate architecture', seasonless efficiency, striking geometrical designs and concise functionalism. She designs for the 'urban nomad', a postmodern consumer who demands adaptable, functional, low-maintenance clothing that looks deceptively simple but makes a powerful impression in changing environments of time, place and circumstance. This book features insightful essays from a number of prominent fashion critics and curators, as well as beautiful colour photographs, and patterns for some of her most iconic designs. Yeohlee Teng was the recipient of the prestigious 2004 Fashion Design Award. This award is given to an individual or firm for outstanding achievement in clothing, accessory or footwear design, and is part of the National Design Awards, presented by the Smithsonian Institution's Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum to honour Americsn creator

Description: "In today's ego-driven fashion ethos, wherein many designers see themselves as the center of the universe, Yeohlee's passion is in exact keeping with her life philosophy. She's an important part of the fashion landscape, yet she has refused the concessions and compromises required of an enlarged role that might jeopardize her independence."
