For some reason, I can’t identify any of my photos from Jiyoon ‘Lydia’ Yeom, MFA Knitwear Design. Jiyoon looked at our busy lives and felt we should search our souls and return to nature. Her designs were comfy, casual and wearable. Her soft-looking, oversized hoodie would be welcome in anyone’s wardrobe!
MinSun Lee, MFA Knitwear and Fashion Design showed the most eye-catching and adorable collection of the evening, inspired by Russian Matryoshka dolls. The Matryoshka style was identifiable by its small dots. For me, the collection, with it’s odd helmets, reminded me more of Japanese Anime than anything steeped in Russian culture, but the sweater dresses were simply adorable, and surprisingly wearable. I think this collection would be snapped up by women of all ages, sizes and shapes, perhaps worn with leggings or pants, or heavy, textured hose.
