WOOD TO WEAR: COLLECTION “WOOD BE?” BY C. J. YAO
Fashion, not just a job of needle, thread and fabrics. There’s space also for unpredictable outsiders, unexpected materials such as wood. At least according to young fashion designer C. J. Yao, a graduate of Central Saint Martins in London.
Her latest collection “Wood Be”, selected and presented at Press Show 2012, explores different modes of creating decorative and structural elements with diversified visual effects, using tubes, strings, fringes and thick-threaded textiles.
