MBFWA 2016 // YEOJIN BAE

It’s Day two of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia 2016, which is when designer shows really start to kick off for the week. This year we welcomed Yeojin Bae back to Carriageworks to celebrate her Yeojin Bae 10 Year Anniversary Show. Unsurprisingly, Bae delivered an outstanding collection that left tingles up our spine. Bae’s signature crepe silhouettes were defined by tones of nude, blush, greens and red against a base palette of minimal monochorome. We saw lace and spliced strips throughout, highlighting her unfaltering talent as a seasoned designer.

Necklines were the statement throughout the collection as the models breezed down the runway. We saw square, asymmetric, one-shoulders, off-shoulders and bold criss-cross neck details. Bae experimented with splicing, proportion, voluminous draping and colour blocking.

Disrupting conventional thigh high splits, Bae captured our attention with stripped crepe skirts and loops that fell flatteringly across the arms. These neoteric design details breathed life and movement into the pieces as they floated effortlessly down the runway.

Yeojin Bae continues to be a favourite of ours every year, as she stays true to her aesthetic whilst continuously evolving and bringing newness each season.

The runway collection is now available for pre-order at Yeojin Bae.
