Designer Mi Young is an innovator, applying the French technique of moulage to her designs. Her new collection features long, airy dresses flowing in exotic vibrant patterns with criss-cross halter and square tank tops. She makes a contrasting bold statement in black and white with fluffy meringue style gowns with confectionary details. A standout in this collection of contrasts includes a stunning opalescent black shimmering skirt with a daring slit, topped by a translucent red and black creation with dramatic cut out floating sleeves. Ruffles, feathers and a spectrum of necklines create an exquisite runway rainbow. The designs are not subtle, but startle and excite like great art.
вЂњMs. YoungвЂ™s unique combination of old-world elegance and Asian influence presents a rare opportunity to discover a perfect dress exclusive to the wearer,вЂќ said Mira Zivkovich, president of New York-based MZI Global fashion consulting firm. вЂњAsia is the home of New Century Couture.вЂќ
