Yeohlee Teng opened her studio in 1981 in a loft on lower Fifth Avenue in New York City. Born and raised in Malaysia, the ethos of small carbon footprint, just-in-time production, and conservation of resources are the core of her design practice.
YEOHLEE’s clothes are efficient, intelligent, comfortable and functional. They are clothes that you can wear in any context – work, dinner, on a bicycle, in the subway, UBER, MoMA, LAX, PEK or SIN.
Materials for YEOHLEE”s Spring 2017 Collection range from tech, to cotton and silk in colors of navy, khaki, cream and black. The fabrics come in textures of loosely woven buffalo plaid and finely woven silk gazar and georgette. There is a print in brushstrokes of ink on cotton lawn and coats with shape and form from the infusion of metal with cotton and silk. These fabrics transform innovative cuts and construction into wearable clothes.
Half of the looks presented today are from YEOHLEE’s Fifth Season, which is buy now, wear now.
Her motto has always been – minimize waste, maximize use.Look 1, black and white silk georgette crew
