Christina Yi "Serpent's Nest" NYFW Wrap-Up

Christina Yi Designs made a New York Fashion Week FW2013 collection debut at Studio Arte in the Garment District on February 10th, 2013. The show was titled "Serpent's Nest" under the theme: 

"Shed the old and Slither into the new." -Christina Yi

Those aware of up to date runway trends already know that fur is kind of a big deal. What happens when such a medium reaches the hands of an avant-garde designer destined for iconic fame? They successfully create a classically functional out of the box piece, soaring just above the trend . True depth of Christina Yi's creativity in seen in her designs. Proof to the world that fashion is an art form.

One of the featured collection pieces  was a two tier leather peplum vest over an optically exquisite floor length dress. Precisely cut, said dress is a romantically rock-and-roll chic vision crafted to sheer perfection. Beautifully Crocheted pieces, horsehair embellishments, and sheer patterned black fabrics set the tone. Texture and pattern totally ruled the night. Almost Gothic by nature,  all looks modeled maintain a sense of elegance reminiscent of work by famous couturiers.

Christina Yi already has a rapidly growing following, but without surprise due to the passionate quality behind her work. Her design intuition as to what the public will enjoy is spot on.  News of the designer's show had the venue filled with excited young professionals styled in ultra fab garb. A recently evolved spiked heel was one hot commodity. Celebrity guests sitting front row were Brett Gleason, Bree Michael Warner, and Skye Townsend. All of them dazzling and having a great time.
