Like clothing, sound surrounds us. Frequently inspired by the built environment in her design process, Yeohlee takes it into the invisible sonic dimension for Spring 2010. The inspiration began with tropical birds and their colorful plumage, evolved into the construction of their nests, which then led to bird calls and birdsongs. Sound is envisioned as waves that rustle over the bodice of Look 13 – in a stripe embroidery fabric suggestive of a musical score – and cascade down the front & back in Look 8. Interlocking sound wave patterns weave a jersey nest around the shoulders in Look 19. The repetition of these geometric elements creates a resounding rhythm of shapes, fabricated in materials with acoustic textures.
